This Pikachu cake was made for my son’s 8th birthday. I first baked 2 cakes in bowls for the rounded parts then 4 more flat rounds for the height. The hands and feet are made from Twinkies that were cut in half. I used red fruit roll ups for the cheeks and mouth then drew on the rest of the face.
Pikachu’s stripes are made from chocolate powder that I put on with a paintbrush lightly dabbing it on. I created the tail by cutting Twinkies into angles and securing then with skewers that I had cut to size for a little more stability in the cake.
I put in skewers and also in between the layers put melted chocolate that when it cooled left a chocolate plate like in between. The ears are made from frosted ice cream cones that I also dusted with the chocolate powder.
The poke ball that I put off to the side as a second cake was made from baking 2 small caked in bowls and the black line going around it was done with black licorice. The black circle was made with a very dark purple fruit roll up that I cut into shape for the topper.
On the pokeball I just got in my kids toys and took one of their Pokemon guys!
