Scooby Doo Mystery Van Cake Ideas

Scooby Doo Mystery Van Cake Ideas are perfect when you are planning a Scooby Doo birthday party for your child.



The Mystery Machine, as the van is called, is the main form of transportation for "Mystery, Inc.". This is a mystery solving company made up of the cartoon characters
  • "Freddie" Jones
  • Daphne Blake
  • Velma Dinkley
  • Shaggy Rogers
  • Scooby Doo


These five characters drive around in the Mystery Machine to find cases that involve ghosts, the supernatural, monsters and sometimes, some real live people. In every case the characters of Mystery Inc. find a mysterious situation, decide to solve the mystery, and set off to gather clues. Well, Velma and Fred usually find the clues and Daphne finds some kind of danger. Shaggy and Scooby, who love to eat, usually find the kitchen while hiding after they have been scared. Scooby is also very fond of a dog treat called Scooby Snacks.

Kids and Adults love to wear Scooby Doo character costumes for Halloween.



After many clues have been collected and examined the gang sets a trap to catch the instigator, but Scooby usually falls victim to the trap at the very last minute. Then, of course, the troublemaker is finally caught and gets carted off by the local police. The crew has once again solved another mystery and they are off again, in the Mystery Machine until they find the next case.


Scooby Doo Birthday Cake Ideas

The Scooby Doo Mystery Van is the best one out of all the Scooby Doo Birthday Cake ideas I can think of. The Mystery van is the center of Mystery Inc. It's how the gang gets to the next mystery every time. And the Mystery Van is a pretty simple birthday cake design to make and to decorate. It's a van, so make a rectangular cake. Cut the top a little so it's not as wide as the bottom of the vehicle. Make tires out of Oreo Cookies.

Make a window frame in the front of the rectangle...where a driver's window would go. Out line a window shape in white frosting gel or with candies like M&M's. Color the Scooby Doo Mystery Van with funky colors...because the Mystery Inc gang is a groovy bunch of kids. Blues and oranges make a nice looking van. With gel icing in a tube write, "The Mystery Machine", on the side of the van. Add some decorations where you think you need them!

Scooby Doo Games



You can find lots of fun accessories to match your party theme when you decide on a Scooby Doo birthday party. Scooby and the gang also give us lots of fun party game ideas. Scooby Mystery Scavenger Hunts are easy to plan. Form a couple teams of party guests and give each team a list of Scooby Clues they must find. You can use Scooby Doo Clip Art and make your own clues. Leave them around and let the kids search for them. Set a timer for three or four minutes and when it goes off the Scavenger Hunt is over. See which team has the most Scooby Stuff. They are the winners...reward them with a bag of Scoobie Snacks or some Scooby Doo Tattoos or stickers.

Play the Halloween Toilet Paper Game. Form teams of two or three kids each and let them make a mummy using one of the team mates and some toilet paper. This works with a Scooby party theme because the gang came up against more than one mummy in their adventures.

Have a Scooby Doo Mystery Van Race. Use card board boxes that you have decorated as the Mystery Machine. Use the same colors you used for your Scooby Doo birthday cake! Create a relay race path that goes from a start line to a mid-point and back. Along the way have obsticles, like a ghost in the road (made out of some helium filled balloons with streamers glued to it) or articles along the side of the course that the driver of the Scooby Doo Mystery Van has to collect...like a hat, some glasses, a scarf...and the team who is finished first is the winner. You can also use signs with the names of the Scooby Doo cartoon characters on them. Each player must choose the righ sign...use alphabetical order as the way to collect them. So the first relay team member up would get the sign with Daphne on it, the next Fred and so on...until all the signs are collected. Kids love relay races and they are very easy to create.

I am sure you can think of some fun ideas to make your Scooby Doo Mystery Van party ideas unique. Enjoy planning your party and be sure to remember goodie bags or favors for the kids. Make sure to get goodie bags or party favor boxes to give out to your party guests for being such good sports!

The perfect costume for fans of the Scooby Doo Character Velma Dinkley.
