My son wants a Super Why cake for his 3rd birthday. I am not very good at drawing so I don't feel confident in trying to just draw a pic of super why on the cake. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make my little guy an amazing cake. Super Why is a kids show on pbs in case you were wondering icon_smile.gif

What about doing a simple rectangle cake and make it look like the Super duper computer that they enter all the letters into. For the message write HAP_Y B_RT_DAY. Like they do when the solve the puzzles??

I made a Super-Why cake for a friend last month, and used the edible image (ordered it off of Ebay). Then just frosted each side of a 1/4 sheet in a different vibrant color to match, with lots of piped "?" on the sides. Wish I was more computer-savy, and could figure out how to upload the picicon_sad.gif

Don't know if this will help but I made some super why cupcakes (haven't uploaded any pictures) but I used clear blue gel to make his big blue eyes . His hair can be brown fondant cut out or brown jimmies. For his mouth I used red shoe licorice. If you made any of the other characters you could used different colors of gel for their eyes. The gel looks cool for eyes and the super why kids have such fun big eyes!!! thumbs_up.gif

I love the idea of the Super Duper Computer, gosh! My little guy loves Super Why too (and I do too haha)
You could do a transfer, they are fairly simple characters. Maybe of the cellphone with the Super Readers on it. Or if he has a fav character, just to a transfer of that one.

I just did my first buttercream transfer and it was really easy. I learned the technique here on CC. I did a first communion cake with twins praying. It wasn't perfect but for a first try it was pretty fun and easy.
