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!

Ingredients:

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

Steps:

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!
