I have to do a cake for i yr old boy and the theme is Bubble and balloons.
Can anyone recommend something interesting and fun?
Thanks in advance.
For the bubbles, it will be really cute to copy a bubble bottle. ( HAlf so it can lie down) Make a fondant label so you can write with edible markers. ALso around the bubble bottle, pipe white circles resembling the bubbles. I saw a cake on here similar to what I mean. I will try ro fing it and let you know. As far as the balloons, keep the same 3D idea. Make a sheet cake, shell bordered in different neutral colors and make 3D balloons using the mini egg shaped pan if you have it then just draw the strings
Oh my gosh I want to make my cake.... That turned out pretty cute!
I also like the idea of the bubble bottle.... that could be a lot of fun!
martha01... i have to ask.. what do you use to design your cakes? (sorry to hijack thread)
as for bubbles and balloons ideas... what about a bathtub cake full of bubbles with a figure in the cake holding balloons (obviously these would be wires w/gumpaste balloons)
I just found this on flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/glassslippergourmet/875096896/in/set-72157594338343614/
I found these two balloon ideas on google
Butterfly wings.... I used Microsoft publisher. I did a tutorial for it a few weeks ago called drawing a cake in Microsoft Publisher. It also works in power point for the most part except the toolbars are in different spots.
Wow that cake is cute or what??? Can I do the animals balloons in fondant??? I'm not that good in piping figures
Thank you all so much for the ideas.....
Yeah...I would think so the only thing that I would be worried about is the weight pulling down on them. I was picturing using a round tip in varying sizes to make the "tube" of color. But dude---It is officially your cake now! Do it however works for you! I so want to make it now too though! I was actually thinking of changing my DD cake from elmo to balloon animals! I guess I may have to ask permission from you to remake your cake....
Oh Please don't say that....by all means you can make " your" cake any time you want
Thanks for helping.
martha, thanks... i'll look up that tutorial.
and i'll jsut ask you both -- can i "borrow" this idea, too. i love the balloon animals.
