How to Create Your Own Cartoon Character Cake

Cartoon cakes are a fun and playful way to celebrate any occasion, whether it's a birthday, baby shower, or just because. These cakes are typically shaped like popular cartoon characters and are decorated with vibrant colors and intricate details to bring the characters to life.

There are many different techniques and approaches you can use when creating a cartoon cake, depending on your skill level and the character you are trying to recreate.

Here are a few tips to help you create the perfect cartoon cake

Choose your character

The first step in creating a cartoon cake is deciding which character you want to make. This could be a favorite character from a TV show, movie, or book, or it could be a character you have created yourself.

Gather your supplies

Once you have chosen your character, gather all of the supplies you will need to create your cake. This may include cake mix, icing, food colouring, and any other decorating tools or materials.

Bake and cool the cake

Follow the instructions on your cake mix to bake the cake. Once it is finished baking, allow it to cool completely before moving on to the next step.

Shape the cake

Use a sharp knife to carefully shape the cake into the desired shape for your character. This may involve carving out parts of the cake or adding pieces to create different features.

Ice the cake

Use a layer of icing to smooth out the surface of the cake and create a base for your decorations. You can use a variety of colors and techniques to achieve the desired look for your character.

Add the details

Use icing, sprinkles, and other decorations to add the final touches to your character. You can use a variety of tools, such as a piping bag, fondant, or stencils, to create different effects.

Enjoy your creation

Once your character is complete, it's time to enjoy your delicious creation! You can slice and serve the cake, or display it as a centerpiece at a party or event.

Here is a recipe for a simple cartoon character cake that you can make at home


Cake mix1 box
Eggs3-4, depending on the cake mix instructions
Oil1/2 cup
Water1 cup
Food coloringA few drops, as needed
Frosting1-2 cups, depending on the size of the cake
Decorative icing or fondantAs needed, depending on the desired design


1. Preheat your oven according to the instructions on the cake mix box.

2. Prepare the cake mix according to the instructions on the box. If you'd like to colour the cake batter, add a few drops of food colouring to the mix and stir it in until the desired colour is achieved.

3. Pour the cake batter into a greased and floured cake pan. Bake the cake according to the instructions on the box.

4. Once the cake is finished baking, let it cool completely.

5. While the cake is cooling, prepare the frosting. You can use store-bought frosting or make your own by mixing together confectioners' sugar, butter, and milk or cream until smooth. If you'd like to color the frosting, add a few drops of food coloring and stir it in until the desired color is achieved.

6. Once the cake is cool, frost it with the prepared frosting. If you'd like to decorate the cake with a cartoon character, you can use decorative icing or fondant to create the details. Simply roll out the icing or fondant and cut out the shapes you need. Attach the shapes to the cake using a small amount of frosting as glue.

Enjoy your homemade cartoon character cake! We hope this helps, and happy baking!


Frequently Asked Questions

How do I choose the right cake pan?

To make a cartoon character cake, you'll need a cake pan in the shape of the character you want to create. You can find a variety of cake pans in different shapes and sizes at specialty kitchen stores or online. Alternatively, you can use a standard round or square cake pan and cut the cake into the desired shape using a sharp knife.

To get the frosting to stick to the cake, make sure that the cake is completely cooled before you begin frosting it. You can also use a thin layer of frosting called a "crumb coat" to help the outer layer of frosting stick to the cake. Simply spread a thin layer of frosting over the entire surface of the cake, then refrigerate the cake for at least 15 minutes to allow the crumb coat to set. Finally, apply a second layer of frosting to the cake as desired.

To make your own fondant, you'll need the following ingredients: 1 pound of confectioners' sugar, 2 tablespoons of water, 2 tablespoons of light corn syrup, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. In a large mixing bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, water, and corn syrup. Knead the mixture until it becomes smooth and pliable. If the fondant is too sticky, add a little more confectioners' sugar. If it is too dry, add a little more water. You can also add food coloring to the fondant to create different colors.

To store a cake with fondant decorations, place the cake in an airtight container and keep it in a cool, dry place. If the fondant decorations are very delicate, you may want to store the cake in the refrigerator to help keep the decorations in place. Just be sure to let the cake come to room temperature before serving it, as refrigerated cakes can be dry and hard.
