I made this Pikachu Cake for my sister in law’s birthday because she loves Pikachu. I used a stuffed animal of hers for reference. I baked a dense pound cake in a stand up Bear pan. The best recipe I have found is:

1 box of cake mix

1 package of coordinating pudding mix

4 eggs

1 cup of water

1/2 cup oil

(This recipe can be found on the Wilton website)

The cake was cooled then covered in butter cream stars. The eyes, cheeks, tail (not shown), and ears were made of fondant. The ears did try to fall off despite the long toothpicks to hold them in place, but she loved the cake nonetheless. It was a surprisingly easy cake and took almost no time to do!
