Coolest JD Bug Scooter Cake

I made this JD Bug Scooter Cake for my friend’s son’s 5th birthday. The cake is a vanilla 9″ sponge covered in baby blue fondant icing. The JD Bug scooter was made in 2 parts using white flowerpaste as I thought it would be easier to paint it once it had dried hard and piece together. To give it more support I used a wooden barbecue kebab stick and threaded the front wheel & front bar down onto it leaving a good 2″ at the bottom to stick down into the cake.

To make the handlebars I used a flower wire twisted and then threaded on more flowerpaste using edible glue to stick to the top of the front bar. For the step-board and back wheel I again used a kebab stick. Once almost dry I stuck the 2 pieces together using a small piece of flowerpaste held on a piece of wire which I was able to stick into each piece.

Once dry I painted the scooter using edible blossom dusts. I made the ramp out of coloured fondant icing, which also doubled up as a bit of support for the scooter once it was on the cake!

  2. Awesome. My friends son is sooo into his scooter and it’s his 10th birthday next week, so thank you so much for your brilliant idea. Not sure I am good enough to do the standing up bit tho, might have to be flat on the cake.
