Brief Description:

I made this cake for my son'ts 2nd birthday at where else? chuck E. Cheese! It was such a huge hit! I had parents from the other birthday parties gawking over it! Even the staff said it was the best cake they've ever seen at any of thier parties!


Vanilla cake mix
devils food cake mix
buttercream icing
red,blue,yellow, green, black fondant tint
heavy cream and chocolate for ganache filling


I sculpted the Chuck E Cheese head and arms completely of fondant a week before so it had time to dry. I inserted long popsicle sticks so they could stick on the cake without falling off. I also made the stars on floral wire and the curly ribbon all from fondant the week before.

I baked a 6" 2 layer vanilla cake and a 10" 2 layer Devil's food chocolate cake. I made some homemade chocolate ganache while the cakes were baking and stuck it in the frige for 2 hours while the cakes baked and cooled. The Devils food was filled with the chocolate ganache.

I iced the bottom tier with buttercream icing tinted blue and the top with buttercream icing tinted red.

I made little fondant pizza slices with fondant and stuck around bottom tier. I cut out yellow fondant circles for top tier. I also cut out my son's name Chase with red fondant, let dry and rested against bottom tier.
I stuck in Chuck E Cheese, stars and curlies all around the cake!

Contest Photo Tips and Guidelines:
  • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your cake is the star!
  • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
  • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
  • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
