Let the wild rumpus start!
In honor of what would have been childrenâs book author and illustrator Maurice Sendakâs 85th birthday, our top cakes highlight his most well-known work, Where the Wild Things Are. These cakes represent the fantasy world of Max, one filled with dark and dreamlike imagery of monstrous creatures romping around the jungle with their boy king.
Head and body are cake. For the arms I used RKT and the legs are all fondant. I didânt wait for the legs to dry and they basically flatened out right before my eyesâ¦LOLAll other details are Fondant, gumpaste and royal icing. TFL
This may be my favorite cake yet. I keep saying that, but who doesnât love Max and his Wild Things? This was for a boy baby shower and knowing the parents, it will be a wild rumpus indeed!Yellow cake with IMBC, raspberry IMBC filling.
Max Where the Wild Things Are. Max is holding a artificial hip instead of a staff because this cake was for someone who was turning 40, LOVES Max and just had her hip replaced and thatâs what she requested he carry.
Max is a chocolater transfer who gave me fits until I remembered I could âpaintâ with food coloring to get the shadows.
I loved making this cake! Thank you for looking!
Buttercream with buttercream transfer design. Wild Things on side of cake are also buttercream transfers â crossed my fingers that they would stay! Dots are chocolate candy.
Popcorn is rice krispies covered in fondant, book fondant and yes hand painted with food coloring mixed with vodka, movie reel fondant dryed for two days and the cake covered in fondant plus popcorn is just small mashmellows
I made this using the design by alimonkey. I had never tried the FBCT before and it works so well! Iâm a huge fan of that technique now. Thanks alimonkey for a great design!
I actually started out trying to make that cute valentineâs cake with the pink monster that says âwild thingâ but that was a disaster. So I scraped off all the pink icing and tried to make this from the Childrensâ book âWhere the Wild Things Areâ by Maurice Sendak (the birthday theme was âwild thingâ).
I made this cake for my daughterâs birthday. This was her favorite childhood book (sheâs now 24!). 12Ã18 cake with buttercream frosting. I did this in a rush. I live on the east coast, she lives on the west coast and unexpectly had to fly home because of an ill grandmother, during her birthday month. It was just for family, so a bit sloppy.
This was made for a friend who is a teacher. They were celebrating the end of the school years. Their theme for the year had been Where the Wild Things Are
2-layer 12 x18 FBCT of Where the Wild Things are Characters. The background is piped in with trees and vines. The flowers are royal icing.
Horton from Horton Hears a Who, Max from Where The Wild Things Are, Classic Pooh Bear, Curious George, and The Hungry Caterpillar. Hand painted on fondant.
All Buttercream..Customer sent me a picture from the web and asked me to recreate it.I donât know whose original design it was but Thankyou if it was someone here on CC.
