Scooby Dooby Doo, Where are you?

4 Oct

 

Rooster turned 5 a few weeks ago and we had his party this week end just gone. Originally he had planned to have this cake with fondant kiwis on top, but as the day got closer I just had no time or energy to work with fondant, also I didn’t really like his choice of cake so I talked him out of it.

We had hired a Scooby Doo jumping castle for the party, image

so I convinced him to have a Scooby cake. The one he chose even had a cake tin with accompanying instructions

And I discovered I could hire it, bonus! Then the only place in Brisbane that I could hire it from did not answer their phone, email and when I drove to the shop it was closed, I rang a place in Sydney and they were unable to get it to me in time, and I did not have time to find one to buy. So, with two days till the party, I decided to wing it.

I made a slab cake (it was even a packet cake! and I hate making packet cake)

I iced the cake with butter cream

I traced the picture onto grease proof paper then on the reverse side I piped the outline in black and then pressed it onto the cake.

So far, so good!

Then I filled in the ears and tongue with pink, the eyes with white, then using a small star tip I created Scooby’s fur.

For the burger I used a skewer to spread the different layers except for the lettuce layers, I used a leaf tip for a ruffle like lettuce effect.

I piped on the collar and dog tag and added a Happy Birthday.

I was pretty impressed with myself, especially since Mr Minx told me I couldn’t do it after I had a little melt down when I was trying to figure out how I would do it.

Once again I forgot to take a photo! I am so bummed, but here is a photo of the partially eaten cake.
