Coolest Little Einsteins Cake

I made this Little Einsteins Cake for my son’s 3rd birthday. He LOVED the Little Einsteins when you couldn’t find much of anything for them – toys, cake molds, clothes, party supplies, maybe a few books. I think I got the idea from this site.

I used a large bowl (1.5 cake mixes) for Rocket’s body and used the remaining mix for cupcakes, which I made the boosters out of. I hate the red frosting from the stores – too sweet! – so I used every trick I could find to make my own. It didn’t work too well. I was able to make a very dark pink by letting the frosting sit in the fridge for 2-3 days.

After I frosted the cake, I then covered it with the red decorating sugar crystals. I reserved a small batch of the frosting and made light blue for the windows. I used red shoestring licorice for trim, cotton candy for smoke out the back of the boosters, a Tootsie Pop for the antenna and yellow gumdrops for lights. I printed pictures of the Little Einsteins and contact papered them so the moisture from the frosting wouldn’t ruin them. Voila!

As for the party décor I bought music note tablecloths, centerpieces and banners. I hung red balloons and printed a couple copies of the lyrics to the Little Einstein theme song and printed a few pictures of Rocket and the Einstein Kids and hung them on the walls.

  1. It looks really good. The next time you want red frosting use a paste frosting color. Tint frosting and let sit for an hour(covered)
    to reach desired shade. I like the paste because no matter how much you use the icing doesn’t thin.
    I usually get it at a cake shop. You may want to try Michaels craft store. They carry cake supplies.

  2. When I colour my icing I use Wilton’s concentrated gel icing tints. I find it doesn’t change the consistency of the icing or effect the taste at all. I buy it at Bulk Barn for fairly cheap and since it only takes a little but it lasts a long time.

  3. From one Debbie to another. I think this is very cute! I am getting ready to make one of these for my Grandson who will be 3. Seeing all these pics helps alot. As you said there is nothing in the stores in way of a mold to use.I ordered a mini rocket mold and am planning to use a round cake for bottom, and trim the tip off the mini rocket and use to make the rocket on top. I am hoping it turns out.
