Blue's Clues cake

I just had to post the process of Jackson's Blue's Clues cake because it's the first cake that I've made that has turned out pretty good. I'm not a professional (obviously), but I'm so proud of this cake! Thank you Lindsay for all the great tips. I seriously couldn't have gotten it out of the pan without you!

PS Lindsay is a professional cake decorator, so check out her cakes at iheartmotherhood.blogspot.com.

Lindsay taught me how to make a cake without a huge dome and it turned out great!!


And I actually got it out of the pan in one whole piece! I've never been able to do this trick before. So proud!


Let the sculpting begin...


All finished cutting.


The crumb coat was green instead of blue. Oops.


Then the blue(ish) coat of icing. There was so much icing I was sick of cake and icing afterward.


And the finished Blue's Clues cake, TADA!!!

So the blues were a little off, but it's not too bad. -If I do say so myself. And it was delicious!! Mounds of frosting and all!

  2. Aw, thank you Lindsay! That means a lot coming from you. It came out pretty good, but I hate that the colors aren't right. I was lazy with the icing. ;)
