Pikachu Cake

When I made a bunny cake for my 2 year old's birthday, my son said I could make his cake the same way...but a Pikachu cake! I think it turned out quite well, and my little Pokemon fan was happy.

The steps for making a Pikachu cake are the same as a bunny cake...you will need white frosting, yellow frosting, Fruit Roll-Ups, mini marshmallows, and chocolate frosting.

Bake two 8 or 9 inch round cakes.

Cut ears out of one of the cakes. I cut the cake in half then cut the ears from the middle section of the cake, so they were a bit longer than the bunny ears.

Put the ears next to the face and frost them with white frosting to catch all of the crumbs.

Then frost with yellow frosting. I found "Neon Yellow Vanilla" at Walmart and it was perfect. Or you can just color white frosting yellow.

 I used a toothpick to draw a line across the ears where the brown tips are. I then used an icing tip to make the line with chocolate frosting and then frosted the rest of the tips with chocolate frosting.

For the eyes, I used a spice jar lid to make an outline on the face. I then piped chocolate frosting on the line. I cut a mini marshmallow in half and placed it in the eye. I microwaved some chocolate frosting on 50% power until it was liquidy and poured it into the outline of the eyes.

For the nose and mouth I used a toothpick to make the lines I needed and piped chocolate frosting along those lines.

For Pikachu's cheeks, I unrolled a Fruit Roll-Up, used a spice jar lid to trace around and cut out the circles.
