I made this Yoshi Birthday Cake for my son’s 11th birthday. I had my son pick a picture of Yoshi from the internet that he likes and then I enlarged it and traced it on parchment paper. I baked and frosted the cake a day before I decorated it, so that the icing on the cake gets stiff.
On the following day I placed the parchment paper with the picture on top of the cake and made holes with a needle following the outline of the picture. Then carefully I removed the paper from the cake and retraced the outline again with a toothpick to make it more visible.
To decorate the cake I used Wilton Decorator’s Icing and food colorings. I outlined the body parts with black icing using a #3 tip and then filled the different body parts using tip #16. I added some green edible glitter to make it more colorful.
