Coolest Homemade Torterra Cake

My 8 yr old is obsessed with Pokemon. His favorite character is Torterra, so I went about trying to figure out how to build him a Homemade Torterra Cake. I printed off a Torterra coloring page from clip art, then enlarged it to get an idea of the size cake pans I would need.

I used a 13 x 9 inch cake for the base, then put an 8 inch round on top of that. I used half of an 8 inch round sticking out to the side to become the tree on Torterra’s back. Then the head, legs, and tail are all parts cut from the other 8 inch cake I baked.

I then frosted the whole cake before adding fondant on top of the cake. I didn’t think anyone would like the flavor of the fondant so we just took it off when slicing the cake.

I am not an expert working with fondant and am sure I didn’t do it properly, but I cut and pieced the fondant together like a puzzle. The spikes I rolled in my hand like playdough to make it really 3D. The boys really loved it and it was fun to make.

  1. Hi, my name is Andy and I am 8-years-old and live in Florida. I am a HUGE Pokemon fan. I really like your cake, however, I would like to see a cake with Torterra attacking a shroomish with Torterra’s solar beam in 3D. WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE IF SOMEBODY COULD ATTEMPT TO MAKE THAT CAKE. Then my mom will be able to copy it for my next birthday party. Please and thank you.
