Coolest Bakugan Cake

I made this Bakugan cake for my friend’s son’s 6th birthday. When she asked me to make this cake, I had no idea what a Bakugan was! She gave me a Bakugan toy (which is the size of a large bouncing ball) and a Bakugan card as a models to make the cake.

I first made a homemade white cake and homemade buttercream frosting. I baked the cake in a 9×13 cake pan with about 12 cups of batter. I colored some of the buttercream red and frosted the entire cake. My goal was to make the base of the cake look like the Bakugan card.

I then colored some buttercream yellow, and some black. I used the rest of the white buttercream and started icing the cake with that in the middle. I used the back of a spoon to spread the frosting in swirls mixing in the yellow to get the right effect of the colors on the Bakugan card. I then made a sun effect over the swirled colors with the white buttercream. I piped on the black colored buttercream on the corners of the cake and piped on the Bakugan name.

I then made a batch of Rice Krispie treats for the body of the Bakugan. I shaped a small amount of the rice krispie for the head of the Bakugan. I used a small sports ball cake pan as a mold and let the Krispie treat harden before I cut one half of the ball in quarters for the wings and feet of the Bakugan. I covered the pieces with MM fondant I had made earlier in the week that I had colored red. I put the Bakugan together using wooden dowels, then put it in the center of the cake. I then piped on details with buttercream I had colored a brownish gold.

To my suprise this cake was not difficult to make, and it was actually a lot of fun! My friend’s son loved it and his friends did too!

  1. What an awesome cake!!

    I’m impressed with your talent and creativity. I just bought a BJ’s cake, and copied some cards to stick in the cake with a few characters. I’ve never baked a cake, so I was scared to try it :(

  2. I love the cake, I have to make one for my sons 6th birthday party this weekend and I have been trying to get some good ideas on how to make one open. Closed is easy, but having it open has been my challenge. Thanks for the help!!!

  3. This cake is almost exactly like the one I am planning on trying to make for my son’s birthday in March. I was planning on using just cake for the bottom of the Bakugan by stacking 3- 9 inch rounds and rounding the bottom, then using dowels and rice krispy treats for the heat and wings. I think your idea may be a bit easier. Thanks for the model. Great job!!
