What type cake are you thinking about? Single layer, stacked, topsy-turvy???

missmikey Posted 1 Mar 2009 , 11:05pm

Ruh Roh that will be tuff. What about the mystery machine?

mom2rascals Posted 1 Mar 2009 , 11:16pm

Try doing a "search" for Scooby Doo. My favorites are the mystery machine and the 3-D head & shoulders of Scooby Doo himself. Either one would give you that "holy crap" response you're looking for . . . Good Luck!

Scooby snacks, maybe a box of them with Scooby or Scrappy doo's face on the box

One of those insanely large sandwiches Scooby and Shaggy are always making

Scooby and Shaggy running from a ghost

Debbie Brown does one of a haunted castle with bats and Shaggy holding Scooby in his arms which is really cute! (If you dont have the book I might be able to scan the directions if you really,really want it!)
I also thought of doing a take of that cake for my daughter who is a Scooby-doo nut, which would be the Mystery Machine and then the gumpaste Shaggy & Scooby.
If you want to do a tiered cake then maybe a haunted castle on the top with the different ghosts going up a "road" or the whole cake being a castle and have a window with each ghost in it (like the ones from the show...Miner Forty-Niner, Clown Ghost, the guy in the diver suit that I cant remember his name!!), Giggling Ghosts, and the Phantom.

Here is one I did for my boy's birthday...he was impressed. Oval pans and then a fondant covered/decorated styrofoam haunted house....I tried to use rice cereal treats, but had too many problems....just went with royal icing covered styrofoam. Hope this helps.

I like the Mystery Machine with Shaggy holding Scooby running toward it.

My personal opinion - I'm 34 and I still LOVE Scooby Doo!

catin Posted 1 Mar 2009 , 11:58pm

The mother only told me that there will be 15 ppl at the party ... So i was thinking something on the small side .. No stack cake ...

weirkd Posted 2 Mar 2009 , 12:04am

Saj_stuff I love that cake! Its awesome!

catin - I did a Scooby cake, it's in my gallery. Not alot of WOW factor to it, but I still have the images saved on my computer if they would be of any help to you. I had the front of the Mystery Machine on the front of the cake and the Back of the van was on the back side of the cake. If you want them, just send me a PM with your e-mail address.

Here is the one I did for my son's birthday last summer. It is just an 11x15 sheet cake. I just drew the Scooby Doo on the crusted buttercream with a toothpick first, traced over the toothpick lines with the black outline and then filled in the colors with a star tip. Hope this helps!!!

here is my scooby mystery machine. I took a sheet cake, cut into 3 slice and stacked, carved a little off the front and decorated. Not the best job but it was my first time trying.
