This Pez cake was for my nephew who collects PEZ dispensers. I knew I wanted to make a PEZ cake so I looked on the internet for ideas and this is a cross between 2 cakes that I liked.
I baked a half sheet cake and then cut a piece 6″ x about 16″ long. I could’ve used a smaller pan but I didn’t want to piece the cake together. The extra cake I took to work so it wouldn’t go to waste.
I carved the sides so it looked like the rounded corners of the PEZ package. After I iced it with buttercream I used strips of grey fondant to cover just the ends and folded them like the foil inner package. I used strips of colored fondant to cover the rest of the cake, making sure to tuck the ends under the cake.
The stripes are overlapping the grey but only touching each other. I made a copy of the PEZ logo, enlarged it, then cut it out. I used it as a template, cutting around it to make the blue part of the logo. I then cut a bunch of small white rectangles to complete the logo.
I used a paint brush with some water to “glue” the fondant to each other. I piped happy birthday and it was complete. This was the hit of the restaurant! The waitresses and even other people we didn’t know were coming over to look and take pictures!
