A little girl's birthday theme is Curious George and I'm making the cake. Does anyone have any interesting ideas, other than the yellow hat?
Thanks a lot,
Hi pattycakes55d and welcome to CC!
Right now all I can think of is the hat or George himself (I'm very tired and it's after 3 am ) but I did a quick search in the galleries and there are a lot of cakes with the Curious George them maybe one of them will inspire you???
If not hopefully hopefully someone else will chime in. Sorry I couldn't help anymore.
Have you seen the movie version that came out a few years ago? There is a scene where George gets into paint cans and there are little monkey paw prints everywhere. Something showing how adorably mischievous George can be would be fun.
Or George chasing a butterfly. He loves to do that.
What did you have in mind for the size?
nanny6sap here, I have a Curious George cake in my photos that may help. I'm a hand drawer and used the plate from the decorations as inspiration. Outlined it in bc & filled in with startip bc with a two toned border. Have fun.
I did a monkey cake recently that you could probably reproduce but make it more "curious george" like. The bananas are RKT covered in fondant.
I made a cute George cake last year. I can't post the pic for some reason. But, I made a 2 layer 9x13 sheet cake and made it to look like a Curious George book. I made george out of color flow but he cracked. If I ever did it again, I would either pipe him directly on or do FBCT.
I had this same dilemma last year. I searched the galleries and found quite a few cakes with this theme. Infact I used one of them as my inspiration and it came out really nice. Check out the galleries and look at my pic. Good luck and have fun.
I made a curious george cake last year for my son's first birthday and found that using bowls to bake the cake for the head and body worked well. I made a large sheet cake to make the legs, arms, and ears. Sorry I don't have a picture on this computer to post. Another idea is finding a picture that you like and doing a buttercream transfer. I found these are much easier than building cakes and less time consuming. Good luck
Thank you very much for all your great ideas and support. I especially liked the idea of going thru the book.
I really appreciate all the support that this community has given me. I feel part of something great.!
