Hootabelle Cake – 3D kid’s birthday cake
This 3D Hootabelle Cake was made for a 2nd birthday. In case you are not familiar Hootabelle is a character from the popular ABC4Kids show Giggle and Hoot.
Here is how the Hootabelle cake started out. Layers of butter cake were stacked together and supported by a dowel in the middle to create stability:
Next the cake layers were carved into shaped (mmmm I wonder what happened to all those cake scraps?):
This is the finished cake carved before the buttercream:
The next step is to ice the cake in a creamy layer of delicious buttercream…yum! We only use REAL New Zealand butter in our buttercream – you will taste the difference!
The buttercream is smoothed over and then it’s time for the fondant. Fondant is a type of sugar dough which can be moulded into any shape and coloured. It is a great medium to use and makes the cake surface super smooth.
I am really pleased how the cake turned out – what do you think?
Side view: The Hootabelle Cake was placed on a bright blue cake board with the birthday girl’s name written in fondant letters:
