My son wanted to have the full picture and face of Indiana Jones. I searched the web and couldn’t come up with anything that I felt would do justice to Indiana Jones. So while on the “official” Indiana Jones site the silhouette image appeared while the web page was loading and “bam” my cake idea was born.
I was able to find a coloring page picture of Indy with his whip, printed it off, sized it to my cake and then colored it in entirely with black and then recopied it so I could transfer it to the cake (I tried the gel method this time and it worked great). I blended the colors of golden yellow, orange and pinkish-red to produce the sunset background.
I did put “Indiana Jones” writing (SF Fedora) on the side of the cake wishing my son a happy 7th birthday. I hope my post will help somebody else when they are trying to make an Indy cake.
