This creative Beyblade cake was what our Cub Scout decided to enter into the Blue and Gold Banquet Father/Son Bake-Off! The cakes have to be made by the father and son, only, with absolutely no involvement from mom…including clean-up.
First, the 2-layer cake is made from boxed pound cake mixes (2) and made according to the recipe on the box. Second, they made homemade cream cheese icing from a Yummy recipe the found on allrecipes.com The cakes were iced in between and covering the entire cake. The icing acts as a “glue” for the fondant.
The Wilton rolled fondant, white, can be bought at any store that sells cake supplies such as Michaels, Hobby Lobby and Wal-Mart. The fondant coloring gel can be bought there, as well. The more color you use, the darker the color will be.
The colored fondant must be rolled out, using powdered sugar to keep it from being sticky, and then placed on the cake, smoothing as you go.
You can really use any colors and shapes to decorate your Beyblade. Just remember that the decorative pieces need to be “glued” to the fondant with water, brushed on underneath the shapes.
This Beyblade cake won for Scout’s Choice!! And the kitchen was clean!
