Chuck E. Cheese Birthday Cake
Chuck E Cheese Birthday Cake
I made this Chuck E Cheese birthday cake for my son's 2nd birthday party, at where else - Chuck E. Cheese's!!!
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 fridge 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 by tinting the fondant a orangeish color and cutting out with the large circle fondant cutter then cutting it into fourths to make 4 pizza slices. I took red fondant and cut tiny circles using the tip 5 to cut them out. I stuck the pizza slices all around the bottom tier.
I cut out yellow fondant circles with the medium circle fondant cutter and stuck on the top tier.
I printed out my son's name, Chase on the computer to get it as big as I wanted and cut out the letters to use as a pattern. I put the letters on some red fondant and used a craft knife to cut out the letters. Let dry for a few hours and sat them up against the bottom tier. I would recommend to do the letters a few days ahead of time, I wasn't planning on doing his name that way it was a last minute decision!
I then just piped on border with different colored icing using tip 12 dots and stuck chuck e cheese in the top, the floral wire stars and curlies all around it.
It was such a huge hit I had parents from the other birthday parties gauking over my cake and I must have had 15 people ask me if I did this for a living LOL
