I made this Barney and Friends Birthday Cake for a friend’s daughter. I used 2 9in cake pans. The cake has 2 layers. Bought the vanilla frosting from food store(Stop and Shop) and tinted them using Wilton food coloring gel(found at Micheal’s, A.C.Moore & Walmart).
I made the Barney figures, flowers, bow on top and birthday banner all a week ahead of time in order to harden in time. The figures are made with ready made gumpaste and I put them on lollipop sticks. The flowers were also made with gumpaste and I used Wilton flower cookie cutters. The birthday banner and Bow were also made with gumpaste.
The purple ribbons on the side(which give the cake a present look) were made with Wilton ready made fondant. I made those the same day the cake was due because I did not want them to harden until on the cake.
The lettering on the birthday banner is made with royal icing(hardens fast).
