If it were me I'd get on the web sit for the movie, print out pictures of all of the main characters and make chocolate transfers.

I'm looking for ideas too....need the cake for this weekend for DS birthday. I was going to use Wilton's mini 3d bear on a 10 inch round covered with red fondant and then make the Panda wearing the patchworked shorts and use pretzel sticks for the Bamboo....BUT I would like to make the Panda standing up and that part has me stumped.....

I did one a couple of weeks ago, but I was in such a rush that I didn't take a picture of it. I did a buttercream transfer of Po (the main character). I also did a smash cake and just put the Happy Meal toy on top of it (McD's has Kung Fu Panda toys right now). I'm sure you could go alot further with it than I did, but I was dealing with an 8 inch round with chocolate fudge icing, so I was kind of limited.

I just Googled KFP (figure my DGS will want him this BD) and there are pages and pages of photos, drawings, all kinds of stuff to work from!

Maybe use JulieB's idea. The old teddy bear pan with half sports ball half for his large tummy.

you all give such great ideas...I ended up using a batter bowl and using RKT for the arms and paws and the sports bowl pan for his head. I was really pleased with how it turned out, took a zillion pictures and they were somehow deleted went I went to upload much for letting someone else use my camera. Luckily my daughter had taken a picture of the cake with her cell phone, so we still have one. I've uploaded it into my pictures. Someday I hope to be as great as so many of you are on this site.

I made a KFP cake, well mostly just panda, but I made a panda out of rice crispy treats, covered in rolled buttercream and painted it to look like the panda. I used a green icing (the color of the theme napkins) and used fondant to make bamboo to place around the base of the cake. I made an extra piece to put in the panda's hand (like if he would have been using it to fight with).

I know this is an old thread, but does anyone knows if there's a tutorial for a Kung Fu Panda cake?

Thank you all!!
