Coolest Wonder Pets Cake

My grandson loves Wonder Pets and I wanted to make some type of Ming Ming cake for his 1st birthday. There weren’t many choices of a Wonder Pets cake so I came up with my own version.

I used the 3D duck pan, carboard for the arms and fondant for his cape and hat.

I used buttercream icing and colored according to a picture I found of Ming Ming online. I made a pattern for the Wonder Pets logo for the cape from a website I found online. I just printed off the picture and used it as a guide when I cut the fondant.

The hardest part I found was making his hat. When it was all done I realized I didn’t shape it exactly right but I usually learn from lots of mistakes from the first time cakes. I used skewers to hold the cardboard arms in place as they get heavy after being covered with icing.

I made a chocolate layer cake as the base and used dowel rods for as this cake is rather heavy. I smoothed the icing for his beak and filled in the black for his eyes before I covered the body. I used a star tip, #16 maybe to cover in yellow and to decorate his hat.

All in all it was a fun cake to make and I hope it helps others with some fun Ming Ming ideas!

  1. I love your Wonder Pets cake. I am thinking of doing one for my son’s 1st birthday. I was wondering where you purchased your duck cake pan. I can’t seem to find a pan where the duck is standing up.

    Thanks

  2. This cake is amazing! I want to make if for my daughter’s first birthday in 3 weeks! Can you please contact me to discuss it?

  3. The cake is great and would love to make one for my niece who is turning one on Feb 21,2010. Can you tell me where I can get the duck pan? Is the pan the one use for the rubber duck 3D pan? Thanks Patty

  4. Well, I am way behind on checking the comments but maybe this will help someone in the future. Yes, the duck pan is the rubber duck pan and you should be able to find it at most craft stores or even on online sales websites. Thanks for the comments! Barbara
