Thanks to the previous contributors to this simply awesome website, I found fun ideas for a Wii cake for my son’s 5th birthday. My cake resembles a few of the cool Wii cakes posted here but has the added “Mii” (my son’s Mii) on the Wii console.
The cake was a homemade butter cake with a raspberry jam and cream cheese filling made using a recipe from Canadian Living Magazine. I baked the cake in a 9×13 pan, split it, put raspberry jelly on one half, cream cheese icing on the other and put the two halves together. I then cut off two sections from the short side of the cake for the remotes and crumb coated all three pieces. I covered the 3 pieces with homemade marshmallow fondant. I cut out the round buttons on the remotes with the size 1A round Wilton tip and did all the iced details using butter cream with a size 2 tip. The black icing stained the fondant around it a bit (don’t know how to prevent that – maybe next time I’ll wait for the fondant to up dry a bit before putting the details on).
Thanks for setting up this website – it is my number 1 “go to” site for ideas!
