Old School Kid’s Cakes

Here at Twiggs we probably do more Kid’s cakes than any other kind of special order cake.   Parents especially seem giddy about celebrating their child’s first birthday.  We easily get more 1st birthday cake orders than any other birthday.  Doing kid’s cakes really keeps you up to date on what the current kid favorite shows are.  I remember the first Yo Gabba Gabba cake we did; I had to ask the mom to repeat the name “yo gabba gabba” about 3 times before I got it. 

This past weekend, however, was old school kid’s cake weekend.  We did a cake with Dino and Bam Bam from the Flintstones;  I didn’t realize anyone still watched that.  And then we went real old school with a Winnie the Pooh cake.  Finally there was a tiered cake featuring characters from Super Mario Brothers.  I realize Super Mario Brothers isn’t THAT old school, but it has been around for a while.

I love doing kid’s cakes.  Their my favorite cakes to do because they’re generally so whimsical and fun.  We do all our figures by hand from fondant.  It’s obviously far more time consuming than putting on a plastic figure, but when it’s done it looks like a real cartoon on the cake, which I love.  So here’s to old school kid’s cartoons.  These are thumbnails below.  Click on the picture to see a bigger image.
