This is a High School Muscial cake I made for my son's 6th birthday. He loves High School Musical, strange for a little boy I know but what can i say!
The cake is a 1/3 chocolate sheet cake with buttercream icing and the characters are from the confetti pack that I laminated. (I got that idea from this website, thanks!) I just stuck them on there lightly after the icing had crusted a little and then pulled them off when it was time to cut the cake. I did a piping gel transfer to get the logo on the cake, worked like a charm.
It was the hit of the party and I had parents asking me to make their cakes! I really had fun making it and Caleb thought it was too good looking to eat! I can only imagine what he will think of High School Musical 3, I guess I better start thinking of cakes for that theme.
Coolest Homemade High School Musical Birthday Cake 19

Homemade High School Musical Birthday Cake
I made this Homemade High School Musical Birthday Cake using a square jam and cream sponge cake covered with marzipan and left for a few days to set. In the meantime I coloured some icing yellow and using stencils, cut out the HSM and stars. I put silver balls on the letters to look like lights.
I then covered the cake with white ready to roll icing and stuck on the HSM and stars using cooled boiled water. I then rolled and cut out the curtains and swags using red icing I had purchased, and stuck these on using cooled boiled water.
I then wrote the name and number in red writing icing(gel). I did want to take the curtains down the sides but thought it was a bit too adventurous for a 1st attempt. I'm really pleased with the outcome though.
This High School Musical cake and the cupcakes were filled with custard flavored with chocolate, the icing was done with Wilton's Butter cream recipe and I added meringue powder to stiffen it up. It was so humid and poured buckets of raining that day - the icing just would not hold it's shape!
We did High School Musical 9 because my friend's daughter, the birthday girl, Cassidy was turning 9!
The background on the cake is supposed to be the burgundy curtains opening! I used a cookie cutter to get the perfect star outline for the cake but it wouldn't fit on the most gigantic of cupcakes so I hand piped with gel the black outline and used the star tip.
For the finishing touch, and it looked better in person, we added Wilton's purple coloured sprinkles.
This High School Musical cake is for my daughter who is 5. She wanted a High School Musical party and since I have always made her cakes I was struggling on what to do. I searched the web and found this website. I like the ideas on here, but still wanted to do a different cake.
I went to the grocery store and looked at buying the plastic pieces they use for the High School Musical cakes, but that wouldn't be my own. Then two days before I was to make the cake my daughter told me that she wanted a "Wildcat" on the cake.
So I found the image online and put together my creation. I like the way it turned out especially since it was all free hand drawing.
