I made this Yo Gabba Gabba cake for my daughter’s 2nd birthday. She LOVES the show, and Foofa is her favorite character. I’m actually quite proud of this cake, simply because I didn’t have all the proper tools and ended up improvising quite a bit because my big decorating box was MIA.

I had to use the tip meant for making roses to do the border of the cake, but it still came out okay. I had to pause an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba so that I could freehand Foofa’s face onto the cake – she came out a bit to “chinny”, but otherwise I’m pretty pleased with how she turned out!

To make Foofa’s face, I freehand drew it onto the cake, and then filled it with the star tip. I used a round tip to do the outlining, the eyes, nose, and mouth.
