This Phineas and Ferb Cake Design was inspired by a pin that I saw. I wanted to have something similar to the logo as well as Phineas and Ferb next to each other and being the primary focus of the cake. This cake was actually two 10×14 cakes next to each other. I took pictures of Phineas and Ferb and blew them up to the proper size, laid them on the cake and cut out around them to get the shape of their heads.
The base frosting was a buttercream and it was somewhat difficult to frost in between their hair. I recommend a small pallet knife or something like that to get into those small places. Then I cut out the sections of the paper pictures that I needed to trace, such as the eyes, Ferb’s shirt and pants, the hair, Phineas’ mouth, etc. I then laid the pieces that I had cut out of the paper pictures in the appropriate places on the cake and traced them with a toothpick in the icing. I used a #2 tip and piped the outline in black.
The rest was pretty much a fill in of the colors. In between Phineas and Ferb, I wanted something that would distinguish them from the base frosting (the base frosting is the skin color). So I prayed about it and got the idea to do their backyard fence, some grass, and sky. The bottom cake oval of the logo was traced by a cut out of the actual logo. Then I eyeballed the words and obviously changed them to say happy birthday to my nephew. I piped a #14 shell as the top border and a #16 on the bottom.
You probably already know this, but just in case you don’t, Americolors and Wilton colors will darken over time. So be sure that you actually make your colors a little lighter than you want them. Ferb’s pants were a great purple color and they darkened in the two hours it sat before the party. I have to say, I think this is my favorite cake that I’ve done so far!
