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.

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.

Thanks for the birthday wishes.

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.

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.


finnox Posted 14 Nov 2006 , 7:09pm

Yes Kelleym they are awsome. I wish I was that talented. I love seeing all the great things that can be done with MMF.

Jesjacster2 Posted 27 Jan 2007 , 5:56am
