How I did it: * Found a Wilton cake pan big enough (11x15) for the party.
* Traced the cake pan on a sheet of paper, and then drew what I wanted the Brobee cake to look like. I used my son's toy as a model.
* Gathered my cake decorating supplies: cake pan, cake leveler, spatulas, food dye, Wilton decorating icing, Wilton tips, couplers, and bags. Then picked out a Betty Crocker Super Moist cake mix in French Vanilla (2 boxes for the size pan I was using). Also grabbed one thing of black icing.
* Made the French Vanilla cake the night before the party.
* Morning of the party, I woke up and decorated the cake using my drawing as a guide. It looked awesome and I'd definitely do it again! Read how I did it… 4 years ago
My son’s birthday party is in about 3 weeks from now, so I’m starting to get everything ready.
I drew out the design of the cake I’m going to make and I got some supplies such as a cake leveler and some food coloring.
Think I’ll go kinda plain with the actual cake…French Vanilla sounded pretty good. Next year I’ll get more creative. 4 years ago
My son’s birthday is not until the first part of November, but I’m already planning on his first birthday cake. I normally go crazy decorating Christmas cookies that literally take all day…now I see myself trying to do a cake.
My son loves the kid’s show “Yo Gabba Gabba” on Noggin…especially the little green monster, Brobee. So I’m planning on making a Brobee cake, using his stuffed Brobee that sings as a guide.
Today I actually traced the Wilton sheet cake pan that I’m going to be using and then drew out a cartoon picture of Brobee on it. I’m going to make it just a simple picture of the character on a light blue background. The candle we’re getting says Happy Birthday, so if I write anything on the cake, it’ll be my son’s name.
I’m pretty excited. I think it’ll look great. Now I’m gleaning secrets from a friend who professionally does cakes so the icing won’t melt. 5 years ago
