Coolest Bag of Potato Chips Cake

This Bag of Potato Chips Cake was made for my boss who LOVES chips. It is french vanilla cake and covered in marshmallow fondant. The “chips” are also mmf cut into circles and shaped to look like chips.

To get the right color of the chips, I dyed the mmf with a tiny bit of brown and yellow. I hollowed out an opening at the top to make the bag appear open and covered the inside of the hole with gray mmf. I then placed about 50 “chips” to make it seem as they are spilling out.

I then cut and shaped the mmf into the logo and red ribbons. I painted on the words “guaranteed fresh date”, “potato chips”,”net wt” and “big grab” with Wilton’s icing coloring paste. The expiration date on the bag was my boss’s birth date.

It was a very large cake so it was funny to make it a 1 1/2 oz. bag of chips. To achieve the shiny look, I painted on butter flavored spray Pam with a paint brush or you can just spray it on, but it’s much nicer to paint it on (I didn’t paint in on over the painted words in fear the it would smear them). It was a big hit!

  1. Wow! That cake looks amazing! Your creativity and details are awesome!! Great job! I’ll be sure to hire you when I need a cake done!

  2. You did a wonderful job! Your detail is excellent – don’t know if I can possibly emulate. I have a friend that listed potato chips as her fave food, so I’m going to make a similar one for her b-day (Ruffles, though). Thanks for the intro to MMF – never heard of it before and I cannot stand the taste of regular fondant (and it’s costly!). I always use buttercream and this has opened up a whole new world of cake decorating for me!

  3. THIS CAKE IS SO DETAILED AND CREATIVE I LOVE CHIPS AND IF I HAD TO DO THIS CAKE I WOULD USE FLAMIN HOT CHEETOS BUT THAT’S BESIDE THE POINT. I HOPE YOUR BOSS LOVED IT AND HE HOPEFULLY GAVE YOU A RAISE…J/K BUT I REALLY HOPE HE APPRECIATED THAT YOU HAVE SUCH A CREATIVE IMAGINATION

  4. I can’t believe my eyes! It looks like a real bag of potato chips! I am only 10 years old. I have a girl gourmet cake maker and I make one little cake every single day around 4:30 each day. I have never seen anything like this before. Do you take requests? I have one request: can you make a cake that is food-broccoli with cheese? please?! that is my favorite thing to eat ever(and spaghetti)!

  5. I just had a request to make a cake resembling a bags of chips for a friends birthday…I didn’t know where to start!!! Thanks for the photo and directions! A life saver!
