I am making a Muppet cake for my son's 4th birthday. I'm thinking about this cake: http://blog.hwtm.com/2012/06/amazing-rainbow-muppet-themed-birthday-party/, but adapted to his favorite characters, because I can do it in advance because his birthday is December 31st and that time of year is crazy to plan a party. :( I've made a cake similar for someone else, but it was princess themed letters. So...my question is how would you ice it for a boy's cake. To me, personally, the ruffles are too girly and the husband isn't really feeling it. If I kept it simple and white, how would you ice it? Petal style, rustic, simple and smooth? I was also thinking about doing white with maybe "paint splatter" with the colors of the party. Thoughts? Thanks! :)
I would do smooth or lines, either horizontally or vertically.
I just searched buttercream texture and got a few different options.
I just realised the letters were princesses. Very cute!!
Any of these techniques Costumeczar shows in her video:
My personal favourite is the one where you drag the spatula horizontally around the cake, I would do that one.
Thanks, sleaky77! I had fun making that for her. I have two boys, so it's fun to do something girly here and there. ;) Dayti, that's for the link. That is a super helpful tutorial!! I have watched it a few times for two different cakes where I did two of the methods she demonstrates, including the one you're talking about. I highly recommend it to anyone else. You're right, Dayti, that is a pretty method. :)
