Homemade Bed Birthday Cake

My husband always complains that I take more than 75% of bed space while sleeping. So,on his birthday I thought of giving him a surprise gift... it indeed brought a smile on his face. He just loved eating it too.. Please excuse the perfection as two crying kids aged 2 and a half and 5 months were at home full day.

How I made the cake:

Base is moist chocolate cake baked in a rectangular tin. After baking I cut it into two halves and put vanilla butter cream icing in between and all over. First I made all bed decorations using fondant and later made the lady and gentleman. I was very happy when I got the correct expression I wanted (esp, the man's face).

The cake was indeed a super duper hit among all our friends and I got lots of compliments. Hope you like it.

Coolest Bed Cake 6

It was my friend's daughter Maya's birthday and I wanted to do a special cake that is not so common. So I decided on a bed cake.

I made my two cakes. Basic recipe. The one cake was a rectangular one (8 eggs,2 cups margarine, 2 cups castor sugar, 1 cup milk, two tablespoons Vanilla, 4 cups self raising flour, the second was a 4 eggs square cake (half the ingredients for the other cake) and butter cream....lots of it.

I made the head boards from the square cake and the bed itself from the rectangular cake. Through trial and error, I cut out this cake. The trouble was in stabilizing the cake. I used carrot sticks eventually and the cake was stable.

by: Karen

Trial and error are how all mine are made. If I can make a suggestion...It looks fabulous, shape and bake a sugar cookie for the headboard and foot board next time....cook it an extra few minutes and it will stabilize just fine with icing :-D from experience. I created a graduation cap and the cookie was the board...it worked beautifully and was still all edible...:-D good luck!

Very Creative!

Coolest 7th Birthday Bed Cake 5

Homemade 7th Birthday Bed Cake

Homemade 7th Birthday Bed Cake

I made this 7th Birthday Bed Cake for a friend's daughter whose bedding had the flowers and owls on it. We found paper plates with the same print so that was my guide line for inspiration. This cake took me two days to make. I made two different royal icing recipes to make the letters and peace signs to see which one worked the best. I made the owls and birds out of fondant, they only took a few minutes to make.

Cake making is my passion and I love being challenged. This cake, by far is my best ever. I am so proud. Blakely loved her cake.

Sofa Cake

This cake is perfect for that lazy person!
I made this cake in a large baking tray which i then cut up.

First you need two pieces the same size to make the seat so you can have a layer of jam and icing between.

Then you need a back that comes about an inch above the seat. This can be tricky to stick on but as long as your generous with the icing it will be no problem!

Afterward you cut two small pieces to act as arms and if you want two squares for cushions!

Good luck!
