Has anyone done a Backyardigans cake? That is what my 3 year old wants for his fourth birthday in December. I think 3-D would be neat but lots of work. I would have to practice this one. I have never done a 3-D cake. Any ideas or pictures would be great. I did a search on the site but could not find any.

Thanks

I'd never heard of Backyardigans until this thread. I looked on google, you can purchase (always) edible images on the web. You might want to take a look and see if this would be a way to go. I have to say, they sure are cute, but LOTS of work to do by hand. icon_lol.gif

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! (a day early icon_lol.gif )

I havent done a 3-D cake, but maybe you could use Wilton's stand up teddy bear pan and carve out/off the features?

Cannot wait to see what you come up with!

If you look in the latest uploads in the gallery there is a picture of the backyardigans. Maybe the person who made them could help you all

There are some great Backyardigans cakes in the gallery if you do a search. I am making one tonight for my son's birthday party tomorrow, and I'll post a picture when it's done. It's going to be two-tier, yellow and orange stripes on the bottom and blue with white clouds on the top and Backyardigans characters all around it. Here are the MMF figurines I made for it. I had a ton of fun with them. They took me probably 30-45 minutes each.

I made backyardigan's cupcakes and it was a lot of work but everyone loved them. check out the site below it uses very imaginative things such as icing covered nutterbutters and cheerios for ears. Its really cool.

Kelleym..
Wow ! you did a great job; seriously, before I read the text, I had scrolled down & saw the image. My first thought was: cute toys. When I read that they are MMF I was stunned. They are so well done, so smooth, the colors so vivid... very impressive!
wonderful work.

ciao
