Cake by Terri B., Flower Mound, TX

My daughter was having her sixth birthday at the Art House. So I decided to make a painter’s palette as a kid birthday cake. I found a palette in the clip art on my computer. I enlarged it to fit on a 9×13 cake. I made a white cake mix and poured it in the pan. I added food coloring to the cake mix to make it rainbow colors. I baked the cake as directed.

Once the cake was baked and cooled I turned it onto a cake board. I put the cake in the freezer for a couple of hours. Then I used the palette template that I made from clip art and cut off the access cake. I bought white and brown butter cream from my local grocery store bakery. I iced the cake brown. I added color to the white icing to make the paint.

Artist Palette Kid Birthday Cake

My sister-in-law just graduated from college with her Bachelor’s in Art and I wanted to make something fun for her. I found this idea on another website for a kid birthday cake and thought I’d try it.

I baked an 8" round, cooled and then refrigerated. After about an hour I carved the cake using a melon scooper to carve out the thumb hole and crumb coated with icing. After another hour or two in the fridge I completed icing the cake. I used decorating gel tubes for the color palette. I then used black Twizzlers for the paint brush. To make the brush tip I fringed cupcake cups cut off the tip of the Twizzlers and stuck them in the opening.,
