I used Kathy Z. from Frisco, TX. cake to get an idea of how I wanted to make this Homemade Wonder Pets Birthday Cake for my niece who was turning 2. (Thanks Kathy!) Kathy’s cake used 2 round cakes, but I would have had to purchase another pan, so I used the pans I had and modified her idea a bit.
I used a 12 X 18 sheet pan on the bottom and a 9″ round pan for the top. I offset the top layer to the back of the bottom layer so I would have room to put the Wonder Pets figures on the cake. I used boxed funfetti cake mix from the store. I used buttercream icing tinted with Wilton sky blue icing color and because I wasn’t able to make the icing very smooth on the cake I piped stars all over the top and sides.
I used Wilton’s lemon yellow and royal blue icing color to tint more buttercream for the borders. I used Wilton’s packaged fondant for the Wonder Pets Logo and the letters. I used a plastic lid and various things from my kitchen to cut out the round Wonder Pets logo. I used leftover fondant to cut out balloons and streamers to decorate behind Lenny & Tuck so the cake wouldn’t look so plain. I didn’t have room to write my niece’s name on top of the cake, so I piped “Happy 2nd Alyvia” on the front edge of the bottom layer.
The cake turned out great and my niece LOVED it!
