I am making a 10" round Curious George cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday. It is iced in yellow buttercream with a buttercream George face on the top. I am stuck as to what to do with the rest of it.
I do plan on writing "Happy Birthday Kennedy" in red icing above George's head. I feel like the sides will need something to pull the cake together.
does george have a ball or something signature to him? you could make some little ones to put at the sides to be like candel holders?
My husband suggested bananas, but the cake is already yellow. What I thought of is an orange shell border (in buttercream) with red royal icing drop flowers w/ ivory dragees as flower centers. Would that look OK?
Ive not seen much of george to be honest :/ so i couldnt say, usually when i think monkey, i think Banana, Not flower . . then again, Why not have both
I was thinking it would help the cake look more girly.
The big yellow hat? Does she have a favorite book of George?...maybe you could incorporate something from that?
George loves balloons!
The big yellow hat...
My daughter had a curious george party for her birthday last year and last month my nephew had a curious george cake for his birthday and both times I just used multi colored banana runts in the border.
I just made one for my 2 yr old. I didn't make a fondant face. I made a fondant George figure, big yellow hat & bananas to go on top.
Here's the cake I made:
I wanted the cake to be yellow, but also wanted the bananas & yellow hat, so I added a red, fondant top to the cake.
You could add some stripes to the cake or some balloons?
