Birthday Cake Design For A Barnyard Party
Lee Woodruff from Family Fun is going to help by showing us how to make a birthday cake that looks like a cow with this video. A barnyard pals party needs a creative birthday cake design and that's where our cow comes in.
To make a cow cake you will need:
a round cake
a domed cake...bake it in a bowl or a dome cake pan
black string licorice
candy fruit slices
malted milk balls
Cake decorators suggest that you chill your cakes to make it easier to frost them. Get your cakes ready to frost. Cut off the rounded top part of your dome cake. Spread some icing on the center of your round cake and put the dome cake on that spot. Put the wide side of the dome cake face down on your round cake. The icing will act like glue and hold it in place. Those two cakes make up the face of your cow cake.
Make hoofs by placing two cupcakes at the bottom of your cake. Cut the third cupcake in half and place one half on the top sides of your cake. These will be the ears of the cow. You can use frosting to hold them in place or attach them using toothpicks.
Now, frost the entire cake with white frosting. When that is done, make some brown spots on the cow's body with the chocolate icing.
Now for some birthday cake design fun...making your cake look like a cow. Use the malted milk balls for your eyes. You can also replace them with Junior Mints or Milk Duds. Use some black gumdrops for the nose, a pink fruit slice for each ear and a half of a pink fruit slice for the cow's mouth. Use the black licorice for the hooves and the eyelashes.
Here is a video to show you how to make a cow cake for a kids birthday party.
