A Backyardigan theme cake is a wonderful option for a child that has an interest in the popular television series, “The Backyardigans”. This show was created by a woman named Janice Burgess. It follows five animals that are children that have highly creative imaginations and go on a wide array of adventures in their backyard. Children everywhere absolutely adore this television show due to the fact that they, too, often imagine that they are embarking on numerous adventures in their backyards.

Pablo Cake

My nephew's favorite cartoon is "The Backyardigans", so his parents decided on this theme for his second birthday party. Since I enjoy making and decorating cakes, I decided to make him a Pablo character cake.

I used a "funfetti" cake mix with a Pablo-shaped cake pan. I then frosted it with a simple white buttercream icing. I then mixed the various shades of icing to accent Pablo's body. I used various decorator tips to fill in the different colors.

The goal in making this cake is to be certain that it is colorful, displays characters from the television series, and captures the imagination in an upbeat and positive manner.

You may draw images on a standard cake, utilize edible fondant toppers, plastic cake toppers, and even cupcake Backyardigan toppers to create the look that is absolutely perfect for a child’s birthday celebration – the choice is all yours. If you still need a little help to go in the right direction, the set of instructions that follow may be a tremendous help:

Instructions on Creating a Vibrant Backyardigan Cake for a Child

Items Needed:

  • 1 Pablo Plastic Cake Topper
  • 1 Uniqua Plastic Cake Topper
  • 1 Plastic Cake Topper That Features Backyardigan Friends
  • Cake Pans (2) Round
  • Cake Mix of Your Choice
  • Yellow Cake Icing
  • Blue Fondant
  • Pink Fondant
  • Green Fondant
  • Orange Fondant
  • Yellow Fondant
  • Green Edible Glitter/Sparkles

Step 1: Make up your cake, bake and let it cool down before you start the decorating process.

Step 2: Cover your cakes with yellow frosting and put them onto a decorative serving tray.

Step 3: Next, create strips of fondant using the colors in the following order: blue, yellow, pink, orange and green. Each strip should be a color of approximately one to two inches wide. You should place the strips against each other in order to create a rainbow effect. Once the strips are in place, roll them out so that you create one large piece of fondant that looks rainbow-striped. Then place the fondant rainbow over the cake so it's covered entirely with the rainbow fondant.

Step 4: Next, take the green edible glitter/sparkles and place them over the top region of the cake.

Step 5: Now, place the plastic cake topper with the Backyardigan friends on the top, back region of the cake.

Step 6: Place the Pablo and Uniqua plastic cake topper on either side of the cake, in front of the plack plastic cake topper to complete the look.
