Sugar Rush Cake (from Wreck It Ralph)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I have a question for all you experts.  I am making a birthday cake for a friends daughter's birthday and she wants a Sugar Rush cake.  Her parents bought her this Vanellope Von Schweetz toy and she said that I could put it on top of the cake.  

 

This is the toy...

 

 

 

 

I know that there are a MILLION fun cake decorating ideas for this cake but I have had a crazy week and so I made a three layer vanilla cake and I think I am just going to cover it in a aqua/mint green buttercream but that is one of my problems... how would you mix a color that matches her?  It looks like a mix between aqua and mint green to me.  I know that on Wilton's website it says to make aqua mix sky blue and leaf green, but do you think that would make a color that matches this figurine or would you recommend another color combination?  

 

Also do you have any other simple decorating ideas for this cake.  I have pink and white sprinkles I thought I could do a boarder that matches the frosting on the top with some sprinkles on it, then maybe for the boarder on the bottom of the cake I could do big dots with a large star tip and I could alternate pink white and brown?  Or would you just stick with the green color for the bottom?  Or use other colors?  I just can't decide and would love some input!  

 

Thanks!

i could mix that color using grass green, royal blue and some yellow

 

wilton's color chart is probably right on though

 

i think i'd use big polka dots the size of the wheels--anything happy would work

 

you might could make some polka dots that are all encrusted with the sprinkles

 

i was thinking fondant polka dots but buttercream would work

 

even if you left the polka dots look like spirals (not flattened out if buttercream)

 

i don't think you could go wrong with this cake--just get the colors right and you got it

 

even a few stripes as the bottom border (the colors of the tire on the bigger wheel)

 

are those strawberries on the smaller wheel???

 

can you pipe those?

 

those little stripedy things on the side between the wheels closer to the smaller wheel

 

you could make fondant spirals like that

 

roll out a fondant sausage and wrap it around a straw

 

dust the straw first with cornstarch so it doesn't stick when you go to take it off

 

looks like fun!

I would use sky blue and grass green.
