I made this Veggie Tales Birthday Cake for my son’s 4th birthday party, he loves Veggie Tales, especially Bob & Larry! I borrowed the Wilton’s Veggie Tales cake pan, greasing it with Wilton’s Cake Release and made the cake using one box of Pillsbury Confetti Cake mix. I let it bake in accordance to the pan instructions which ended up being for about 25-30mins. I checked it periodically to make sure it didn’t overcook!
Once the cake cooled (about 45mins) I flipped it out onto a piece of cake cardboard and I decorated it using Wilton’s tubed frosting. I first outline both characters with Wilton’s black tubed frosting using just a standard tip on it! I used the pan insert as a guideline. Then I used the standard tip again with Wilton’s white frosting to do the eyes of both characters, I filled the eyes in with a swirling motion and did the same with the black frosting again to make the pupils. I used the standard tip to also do the mouths of both characters. Once that was finished I used Wilton’s red tubed frosting with a star-tip and filled in Bob, this took about 2 1/2 tubes of frosting, then I did the same process using Wilton’s leaf green tubed frosting to fill in Larry, which took about 2 tubes of frosting. Once that was done I did the rest of the outline with Wilton’s yellow frosting including doing the edges of the cake, this also took 2 tubes of frosting!
I was very happy with the end result! The cake was a lot easier to make then I thought it would be and my son absolutely loved it!
