Coolest Eeyore Birthday Cake

I made this Eeyore Birthday Cake for my daughter’s 1st birthday, as Eeyore is her favourite toy that she sleeps with and takes everywhere. This is a cake I designed by myself.

Firstly I made a large rectangular butter cake, using three times a home made butter cake recipe ( but packet cakes will work also) the size of cake I made takes 1hr to cook. I found an image of Eeyore’s head and made a baking/tracing paper template cutting out the head, ears and hair semicircle out separately.

Once positioned on the cake board, I made two quantities of Vienna or butter icing and divided it into three, with only a small amount for the black. The flesh pink icing was made from the pink after I had finished icing the ears by adding several drops of yellow colouring and lightening the colour with more white un-coloured icing.

Eyeore’s hair is strands of strap licorice cut with points and placed to look like a messy mane and mouth, nose and other black areas were also strap licorice cut into thin strips. The white of his eyes were made from royal icing that I made mixing together egg white and icing sugar until it was thick and then adding a drop of lemon juice. The white paste was kneaded with a little more icing sugar and then rolled to the desired thickness.

I hope this helps all those who want to make an Eeyore cake as there aren’t that many cakes/ideas available for such a lovable character. All of my daughters loved the cake, especially the birthday girl and blue icing was everywhere!

  8. You’re cake is wonderful! You had easy to follow instructions. I made this cake for my sons third birthday and he just loved it. Thanks for the wonderful idea. Keep posting your cakes.

  9. Your cake, picture and directions helped me to recreate your cake for my daughter’s 31st birthday.

    I made the face out of a French Vanilla Pound cake and the ears out of Chocolate pound cake.

    My daughter loves the grey eeyore so I changed the color and iced the cake with a star tip to give it a “furry” look.

    Your cake was one of best examples and easiest to follow.

    Thanks again!!

    p.s. the girl who received this cake was an exchange student to Australia after high school and loved the country.
