Coolest Winnie the Pooh Cake

I made this Winnie the Pooh cake for my son’s first birthday. I came up with Winnie the Pooh idea because his room is decorated with that theme. It took about a month to decide what the cake would look like. I began sketching the cake and looking at several books for ideas. Then I thought “Winnie the Pooh lives in the 100 acre wood”. I would make the cake to resemble a log that was cut into.

I made the cake in two layers the bottom is a 12″ round butter cake and the second layer is a 12″ round butter cake cut in half. The layers are placed on top of each other with a cake board and wooden pegs to support the layers. I then decorated the cake with chocolate buttercream icing using a #21 tip and made the wood knots first then a up and down zigzag pattern for the wood grain look.

For the grass I used buttercream icing dyed green and a #233 tip. My son’s personal cake was made from a mini bundt pan with the same batter as the large cake and decorated the same way. Once the cake was decorated I placed the characters on the cake.

  2. Thank you for all your nice comments. I can’t believe I am getting ready to make my son’s 2nd birthday cake. Where has the time gone to? I am thinking of making him a train cake since he loves “Cho-Cho’s”
