Piplup Birthday Cake

It’s been a long time since I have done a cake. When my friend asked me if I can make a special cake for his girlfriend, I could not say no. Her favorite Pokémon is Piplup and he gave me a reference picture.

Firsts things first, the cake. I used one box of cake mix and then split the mixture into two different size pans. Put them in the oven for 30 minutes. After they were done baking, I placed them in the refrigerator to chill. I waited a few hours until it was completely chill so I can start decorating the cake.

I bought one box of white fondant and used Wilton icing colors to create the shades I needed to make Piplup. The bottom large cake was covered in baby blue fondant. The smaller cake, which is Piplup’s face, was covered in white fondant.

I honestly don’t know how I did Piplup’s face. I sometimes zone out and just let my hands work. I amaze myself. It’s kinda therapeutic in a way for me.

After placing the small cake on top of the big cake, I cut yellow stars out of fondant and used white star sprinkles. The Piplup cake is complete.

The cake was a huge success. So much so, she did not want to cut the cake so we cut around it. She thought it was too cute. I’m happy that she loved it.

  1. I thought the cake was dome shaped this whole time! Wow. It looks incredible! I’m making one for my coworkers kid this week, and this one is my inspiration. Thank you for sharing your process.
