Birthday Cake Ideas – Adventure Time!

Birthday Cake Ideas – Adventure Time theme! Adventure Time is a quirky, animated kids show created for Cartoon Network. It features main characters Finn (a human boy) and his best friend (and adoptive brother) Jake (who is a dog) and a host of other crazy characters. It’s one of those kids shows I don’t mind watching myself – it’s very funny and a bit different.

To start, I covered the cake board in green fondant icing. Jake was created by hand carving into 3 layers of butter cake, covered with buttercream icing and finished in yellow fondant. Fondant is like an edible playdough. It is made from sugar and can be moulded into almost any shaped. Fondant creates a perfectly smooth surface to work, can be coloured into any shade and is one of the most versatile ingredients to work with and for all of these reasons, is my preferred medium create with.

He took the longest time to create out of all the characters as his beard and teeth were so fiddly as was the...
Photo Cake – Moshi Monsters

Photo Cake – Moshi Monsters

Photo Cake –  with Moshi Monsters edible photo image by Robyn Bent Today’s featured (edible) photo cake was for a little girl’s birthday..actually it was a party for twins.  You can see the other cake from this post: Monster High Sheet Cake This sheet cake was finished in creamy buttercream icing coloured green.  The buttercream was piped all over the cake to make it look like grass. I next added an edible image of the Moshi Monsters characters and created a border around the edible image from little hand made fondant flowers and leaves.  The design was finished  with a fondant rainbow in the top corner. It turned out to be a really bright and fun cake. I also created some matching photo cupcakes with the Moshi Monsters name and the birthday girl’s favourite character, Buster. The cupcakes were iced in buttercream with the piped ‘grass’ and topped with a circle of fondant displaying the edible image.
