My 4 year old son loves “Pablo” from the Backyardigans. Actually, he pretends that he IS Pablo. I was at the local cake shop in my town and saw the Wilton Pablo Form Pan and knew right away that this was what I wanted to do. What I didn’t know was that the form pan alone would not feed all of our guests. I improvised by baking a second cake in my largest lasagna pan and then laid Pablo right on top of it.
First, I iced the bottom layer of the Pablo cake in white. Next, I iced the white background and sides of Pablo in white. Then I decorated the little penguin with all of the colors (and there were a lot). Lastly, I added the border with help from my friend at the cake shop (thanks “P”) since this was my first time ever doing a border. I was a little nervous to try it on my own. The star sprinkles were just a little something I added to bring color to that bottom layer.
This is only the second cake I have EVER decorated and I was very happy with the way it turned out. Needless to say my little man was very happy too!
