I made this Bananas in Pyjamas Pinata Birthday Cake for my daughter’s first birthday (as she is B in P crazy!) and it was a real hit. I first made the pinata which is B1’s head out of white chocolate and yellow food colouring. Once melted, I put the chocolate in a ‘Dolly Varden’ tin for a great banana shape.
Once set, I molded the face/top out of modeling icing and filled it with lollies. I then made the actual cake (under his pyjamas). Considering the head/lollies was so heavy, I made a mud cake. I think a sponge would have collapsed!
I iced the cake in white buttercream and made blue stripes out of modeling icing. It was a bit neater than icing on blue stripes. Then I put on the head and added a collar, buttons and my daughter’s name in the Bananas in Pyjamas style of writing and we had a great time.
What a surprise everyone at the party had when it came time to smash his head open and lollies came pouring out! Lots of fun.

I was wondering how you made the top brown part of the cake?!
Hi, what a beautiful job you have done. Hope you don’t mind but I would like to make this cake for my sons 1st birthday. I was just wondering where you got the blocks to spell her name from? I know most people make them, but I was hoping to just buy them.
