My son is a huge Godzilla fan and nothing else would do for his birthday. I didn't want to tackle making Godzilla from fondant or gum paste so I purchased a figure he had been wanting and used it on the cake. After the party he had a new toy.
So for this Godzilla Birthday Cake I made a sheet cake from scratch. If you don't want to make it from scratch but like the taste of homemade add a little vanilla flavoring to your cake mix it will make a huge difference.
I made the city scape with Wilton Colorflow mix. Just make sure to make it up several days ahead of time. It took this 2 days to dry. I still had some trouble with it trying to crack but I just told him Godzilla had already been through the city..lol.
I used homemade buttercream icing. Made the grass smooth around the edges and used a grass tip on top with a basic border around the edge. The road made a perfect spot for a birthday greeting. My son loved it and was so excited about the city.
My friend's son was turning 14 and when I asked him what type of cake he'd like, he said a Godzilla Birthday Cake. So, always up for a challenge, I put on my thinking cap and went to work!
Instead of just the usual cake, I wanted to create a whole scene using cake, cars and a Godzilla toy. I created the street scene using Publsher, printed to poster size, then mounted on foam board. I printed the street signs on cardstock, wrapped toothpicks with foil, then hot-glued them together. The stop lights were made the same way, but I painted the toothpicks black. The trees were made out of sticks and moss. The rest of the scene was finished up using felt and ribbon.
The cakes were chocolate fudge, vanilla and butter cream chocolate with homemade buttercream icing. I always add a box of instant pudding to every cake mix, it makes them so moist and delicious!
This was a really fun project and made her son very happy which is what baking is all about!
My son loves the old Japanese Godzilla movies. So I wanted to make a Godzilla cake that was about the old Godzilla movies and this is what I came up with.
It took 2 cake mixes and three frosting tins. I made a flat cake and a bunt cake. I put the bunt cake on top of the flat cake to make a hill. Then I frosted everything! I used green food coloring on shredded coconut for grass and crushed graham crackers for the dirt road and the beach.
I used small army guys and trees to decorate the top of the cake. I used blue jello for water and I put Godzilla in the jello to make him look like he is coming out of the water. To make the jello use the finger jello recipe and put plastic wrap in the jello pan first. This will help lift the jello out of the pan easy.
My nephew is a Godzilla freak! So when he asked if I could do a Godzilla cake for his 17th I wasn't surprised, however it had to be black and white like the original (don't get him started on the re-created movies lol).
Anyway, this Homemade Godzilla Birthday Cake Design is a round sponge cake, the buildings are fondant with painted on details to give it the sketchy look. Godzilla is made of rice krispies, and then covered in fondant and painted with black food colouring.
I was glad when this cake was finished.
