Coolest Hamster Littlest Pet Shop Cake

My daughter wanted a Hamster cake to go along with her Littlest Pet Shop Party theme. She also wanted the hamster to resemble our own beloved pet hamster.

I left the cake in the cake pan to create the illusion of a cage. I created the hamster by covering a Twinkie with homemade marshmallow fondant. The wheel was crafted by inserting thin wire into Twizzler’s and creating two circles. I then cut shorter pieces of Twizzler’s and inserted toothpicks through them so they would stick to each side of the circles creating spokes for the wheel.

The little house was formed by stacking 6 Twinkies and covering them with fondant. I also created the food dish, carrots and food nuggets with fondant. The litter was crushed ice cream cones sprinkled over the cake (which was frosted with buttercream frosting).

Last but not least, I rolled tiny little pieces of black fondant to create the poo corners – realism at its best! Believe it or not, all the girls wanted to eat a piece of cake from the poo corner. They thought it was hilarious. This Hamster Littlest Pet Shop Cake was actually a pretty easy cake to create and loads of fun, too.

  1. THANK YOU! I have been stressing out over trying to make a fondant cake from scratch – for weeks now, two days til party…just made the fondant, marshmallow fondant from scratch…..first time ever…and there were so many ideas in my head, I, well, got a wee bit “overwhelmed”. So, sorry to say this, but I am definitely going to use some of your ideas on her 10th birthday cake. She has had 5 hamsters to date, and this will be a “wonderful” surprise. Thank you again for posting such a creative, beautifully planned out cake, poop pellets and all!!!! I LOL when I saw it and thought it was brilliant. Good Job!

  2. It’s truly an amzing idea and what I found the most creative part was the litter itself. It looks realistic and as soon as I saw the picture I was like “How did she do that?”. The ice cream cones was a great idea, along with the entire cake design. It’s really remarkable, great job :)
