My daughter turned six last week. She loves Shaun the Sheep a lot. She requested a Shaun the Sheep birthday cake for her "day of birthday" and sheep cupcakes for the day we invited the family over for a party. I was a little nervous about the cupcakes. So much that I begged my husband to get a small cake.
The cake was pretty simple. I took a box cake mix and followed the directions. I made two round cakes and made a peanut butter filling for the inside. I ended up covering the whole cake with peanut butter icing which is perfect for the color of Bitzer! My husband was kind enough to help me get the icing I needed. Blue, black, white and brown icing all made by Wilton. I also used brown piping gel.
Using a Bitzer coloring paper, I outlined the part I wanted to be applied on the cake. Then I
turned over the paper and gently rubbed the gel on the cake. From there I was able to pipe the colors onto the cake. I am no cake artist, but she loved the cake and that's all that matters to me!
What do you think?
I used candy eyes, mini marshmallows, white buttercream icing, white and black Wilton cake frosting. I started by using a a box cake mix for my recipe. After baking the cupcakes I applied buttercream icing for my base to hold the mini marshmallows. Then I piped the sheep's head and ears. After that I added the candy eyes. This is how it turned out.
