Coolest Baby Einstein Lion Cake

I knew I wanted a Baby Einstein Lion Cake for my son’s birthday, so I did a lot of research online and on this site. I used a combination of different users and my own ideas to come up with this cake.

This is a standard 1/2 sheet cake, which used 3 “box” cake mixes, and only required minimal trimming to level. I used the Wilton Butttercream icing recipe from their website. It is not the pure white recipe, but I sacrificed the “pure white” look for what I think is a better taste. It was “off white”, but no one seemed to notice.

I then free handed an image of the Baby Einstein Lion I found online into the cake with a toothpick to outline it and make sure it fit on the cake. I then piped the outline of the lion’s face and filled it in with a star tip, using a slightly bigger tip for the nose and mouth area, so it showed up better. I continued to outline areas and fill them in accordingly.

I was really happy with the results and the guests loved it.

  1. That cake looks awesome. Your son is one lucky guy. It looks like a million bucks. I can’t wait until next year to see what you come up with!!

  2. For my birthday I want the real Baby Einstein lion puppet, so we are going to make one together at the cake walk in the fall. My cake walk has a lot of food and fun, and even my song rendition, “Jingle Bells.” This is my song when we have the cake I want to pick out, so I want to make sure I can do a cake with fondant. We have unflavored gel in our snack pantry, so we can add Happy Birthday Leslie on the cake.

    See you later
