I am new to the forum, but not new to cake decorating. I am so clueless to this lovely site. There is so much to see on here I don't know where to even start to look. I love all the beautiful cakes I have seen so far, and that is why I am asking you all for some help with my soon to be 7yr. olds son's cake. He really loves Scooby Doo, and I need some ideas on what to do. I am open to anything. Thank you to anyone who can help.
maybe you could have scooby doo doing your sons favorite activity or hobby. You could have him fishing, playing basketball or swimming. I look for inspiration in coloring books sometimes or looking through the gallery. Good Luck.
I would google "images" of scooby doo and see what pictures pop up ... they could inspire you.
Welcome to the site. You'll be addicted soon!
My son loves scooby too, I would do their van and maybe a paste figure or two?
Good luck with it have just finished my son's cake for his party, ended up doing him two cakes...the things we do for our kids!
There's just so many things you could do with Scooby. There's of course the Wilton Scooby pans, or accessories..but why not go for the gusto and get really adventurous?!?! You could do a carved cake of the Mystery Machine with gumpaste figures of the gang. Or include some of the classic monsters too. Hope this helps and good luck with whatever you decide! (and post pics! )
There are so many great Scooby Doo cakes on this site, maybe you could do a search in the galleries to get some inspiration? I love the idea of the van and gumpaste figures.
And, welcome to CC!
I have instructions on how to make a scooby cake. Can't remember which book I got it from. If you are interested in the instructions I will email them to you.
I just want to say thank you to everyone who replied. I have searched the site and got great ideas. I absolutely love this site! Thank you all again an please keep the ideas coming.
Well mochacupcake, make sure you post your cake on this post so we all can see what you decided to do. I did the scoby do mystery van for a friends 5 year and they all loved. It was my first "actual" carved creation other than my husband turned my first attempt into a comcast wrecked van, see my pictures, yup, he did that one all my himself and hijacked my cake prototype. Gotta love husbands help, heck, half the cakes on my photos are creations I started he ended up finishing because he wanted to "help". But I love that he half way takes an interest in what I like to do.
I did the mystery machine (van) for my son's bday a couple of yrs. ago. I just used a scooby doo candle on it. It was pretty awesome. I don't have a pic handy to upload but I did use the mini chocolate donuts as wheels. I had never heard of fondant at the time and I'm just now learning how to use it. I get design ideas from www.coolest-birthday-cakes.com some are more professional than others but it gives you the idea and you can run with it. check it out for scooby doo ideas!
I did a cupcake-cake recently.
I did a van for my nephew, its in my pics. It was one of the funnest ive done. Good luck!
