My 3 year old daughter loves the Disney movie that was recently re-released, Oliver & Company. For her birthday she asked for an Oliver Cat cake, the movie’s main character.
I baked 2 9″ round cakes and 3 cupcakes for the muzzle. One round cake is for the face of the cat. The other cake, I made two cuts for ears. For one of the cupcakes, I shaped it like an hour glass before baking, this will be used for the mouth.
I made butter cream frosting and then split it into the colors of white, orange, tan, black, blue pink and yellow.
First I frosted the one round cake with orange frosting, and then I frosted and placed the ears on. Next I took the 2 round cupcakes and cut them down, frosted them tan and placed them on top of the cake. I then took the hour glass shaped cupcake and cut the bottom half of it and also cut it down, frosted it and placed it below the 2 cupcakes.
I continued to decorate the cake with details. I finished up with swooping a knife on the edge of the cake to make it look like the cat’s fur and adding a band of blue for the cat’s collar.
