My daughter planned her Build A Bear birthday party for almost a year. The idea for the Homemade Build A Bear Birthday Cake came from the Valentines Day Box one of her bears came home in. We baked 8 8x8 cakes to create the house. We used a serrated knife and ruler to cut the roof. The decorations are all colored fondant. To get the bear shapes, I used the Stampin Up Build a Bear cutout and traced it on the fondant. I used a circle cookie cutter to do the roof, and a Wilton fondant leaf and bird mold for the nature scenes. We also cut 2 sizes or rectangles to do the brick work on the sides. This was great for hiding the fondant mistakes on the sides!
The cake was a big hit and my daughter really enjoyed her 5th birthday party.
The Bingo Birthday Cake was a fruit cake but you could use a sponge cake. I covered the cake with marzipan and then fondant. I drew a grid using a edible ink pen and a ruler and then went over it with coloured icing. Then I rolled balls of icing for the bingo balls and piped numbers on then. As well as piping numbers on the bingo card and wrote happy birthday in coloured icing.
I finished the edging around the cake with coloured icing again and the cake was finished. I also cut small round discs out for the counters and arranged them on the cake. Everyone was pleased with result.
We made this cake for my mother in-law's 65th birthday party. We used a 13X9 cake for the base and covered it in brown/marbled fondant and then gave it a brown wash over with Vodka and brown food coloring. I created the crossword so that it had all of the family names on it with clues and had it printed at a local cake store.
The cup is made with sugarpaste and filled with chocolate pudding and hand-painted using Vodka and food coloring. The pencil is made with sugarpaste as well. An edible marker was provided as well and everyone had a great time filling out the crossword on the cake.
I made an 11x15 cake and then cut it in half to make 2 rectangles. To make it look more like a corn hole board I angled the tops of the cakes. I then iced them smooth white using the Wilton recipe icing.
I cut the holes using a measuring cup as a guide and then cut out some cake. I iced the inside of the holes using thinned down icing tinted black.
Next, I iced the corn hole bags onto the boards. As a finishing touch I thinned down more icing and tinted it green to look like the corn hole boards were sitting in grass.
My daughter was having her birthday party at Build-A-Bear so for the Build-A-Bear theme I made a 3D bear cake to look like the Build-A-Bear character (girl one). I used the Wilton 3D Bear Cake mold and followed the instructions that came with the cake as to the type of cake mix to use, etc. It worked really well. Then just made the face look like the character with the icing. It was a huge success with the girls.
This Chinese Checkers cake was a lot of fun to make. A lot of gumballs and colored frosting. I made the cake rounds with fun-fetti cake and covered it completely in white frosting. I colored each section of the game board and let set.
Once the cake had set, I used a gumball to make the indents of the game board. I then placed gumballs throughout, to show the movement of the game!
