Coolest Kung Fu Panda Cake
This idea for the Kung Fu Panda cake came from my local supermarket. My son had his heart set on this cake but, they wanted so much $$$ to make it, I decided to do it myself. I did order the cake toppers from the store.
I started by baking a 1/4 sheet cake. When it cooled I frosted it with white buttercream. I then cut the sunset templates out of cardstock. I covered the top portion of the cake with the templates and sprayed the bottom half and sides of the cake with Wilton spray green tint.
I then covered the green area with paper and removed the sun portion of the template and sprayed it yellow. I then replaced that the sun template and removed the sky portion and sprayed that with the Wilton orange. I then removed all templates.
Next I mixed the brown and green frosting. Using a large star tip I piped the tree and branches. I then used a grass tip to pipe the tree leaves.
Next I mixed a small amount of gray frosting and outlined the rocks and filled in. I then piped more grass around the rocks.
I then used a large star tip with orange frosting for the lower border and red frosting for the top.
I then placed the figures on the top and added the happy birthday sign that I attached with toothpicks in the corner of the cake.
My son loved it and I was able to create what the store would have for less then half of what they were asking.
