Re: Creative Birthday Cake Ideas???

I made monkey cup cakes for my sons birthday. They were a little different then these but basically the same thing. http://mylittlemochi.typepad.com/my_..._see_monk.html

I was going to make cute little barn animal cupcakes and a red barn cake for my dds b-day but she wants a barbie cake this year.

Not creative on the decorating side, but as far as "frosting," I mixed mashed banana and vanilla yogurt for DD1's first birthday. It was fine!

Re: Creative Birthday Cake Ideas???

I'm not a cake decorator by any means, but I did make a small cake for my son's 1YO bday:


I think the key to making 3D cakes if you are not well-practiced in it is to make it small scale, like this, and if you need more cake to feed people then you have cupcakes or a sheet cake to go with it, or even set the small 3D cake on top of the sheet cake. I've seen a lot of really cute small-scale cakes, like little dome shaped ones that were made to look like a pinapple with Spongebob figurine (remember his house is a pineapple), like a ladybug, like the bottom part of a princess dress with a doll stuck in for the top half, like a muddy hill with a toy dirt bike or race car on it, a cartoony hill with yo gabba gabba figures on it, etc.

Re: Creative Birthday Cake Ideas???

I started doing cakes a few years ago so I may have some ideas for you... check out my website: http://kakesbykristy.has.it/ I could give you pointers on a cake if you wanted to attempt it. For my DS's 2nd bday, we did a Lightning McQueen replica.
