Adventures in cake, Jessie

Originally made for the Princess in May 2011.

Well, the oldest was going to be six and she knew exactly what she wanted for her birthday cake.  She handed me a Jessie (from Toy Story) and said "This should be on top of my cake.  Do your best, Mom."  She is getting a bit more precocious you see.


I had originally thought I would make her cake look like Jessie's hat, but this was going to be a little more difficult now.  


Or was it?  Suddenly I had inspiration.  What is Jesse?  She is a cowgirl and cowgirls mean cows.  Cow prints are easy.  Really easy.  And, I had already did a cow print on the top of her Fancy Nancy cake.


I chose to do two six inch layers and two eight inch layers.  They were iced in all white icing.  I used two tubes of Wilton black to do the spots.  I know it seems like cheating to use pre-made icing on top of my homemade butter cream, but it really beats trying to make black yourself.  The black spots were made using a Wilton #7 tip then smoothing it out (sort of) with my finger dipped in a little powdered sugar.




I used a tube of Wilton red (still easier than making red, too) to do a rope around the sections of cake.  I used a Wilton #6 tip to do this.


The topper was perfect.




The Princess was thrilled with how it turned out.  Here she is in her Jesse costume (I made that, too!) posing like Jessie on the cake.




When it was time for the candles, I removed Jesse and put in the cool little star candle set I found at a local party supply store.




Any questions let me know!


You will probably see the rest of this party soon.

  8. Genius Love the way you did it. I imagine a cow boy hat like Jessie's would have been way out there. Your little one looks so cute in her outfit too. There's nothing like matching your birthday cake

  9. Hi! Found you on Chic On A Shoestring Decorating party! Love the cake! My son had a Toy Story birthday two years ago and I made cupcakes to look like Hamm, the aliens, Mr. Priclepants and did cookies to look like Jessie's hat. I was so tired of making cupcakes when I was finished! Have a great weekend!
