My son’s girlfriend is really into Tweety Bird so this is where the idea for this Tweety birthday cake came from.
This is a 14″ white cake with almond extract and butter cream frosting. The outer shell is fondant. To give it the marbleized look I took a pink, orange, and white piece of fondant, rolled them in into individual ropes. Once done I twisted the 3 colors, folded them over and twisted again and then proceeded to roll out the fondant to cover the cake. I followed the same steps for the rope around the cake as well.
To make Tweety Bird I found a picture online, printed it out, and used this picture as my pattern. I used my x-acto knife to cutout my pattern and bonded it to the cake with a little water. For the balloons I used a round cookie cutter and took my finger and pulled the circle down to form the balloon look. I used black royal icing to outline everything.
I was very please with the results.
