Hey! Make sure to check out the other Winnie the Pooh posts!
Let’s talk about the Winnie the Pooh Birthday CAKE!!!
I wanted to do something fun and easy and different.
I have loved the M & M cakes that have been around lately,
and decided to try out my own version.
I didn’t find one like this anywhere online, so I had to wing it.
I just used a box cake mix,
split it between two 8 inch cake pans,
and 3 cupcakes.
I did the cupcakes first, to make sure that I had enough for them.
I baked my cake Friday night
(after the kids were asleep and couldn’t stomp around making them fall).
They cooled over night.
Next, cut the tops off the cake(s) to make them flatter, so they stack nicely.
I just put a light layer of frosting between the two layers.
Stacked the two layers, and then I frost the edges the best I could to make them look awesome.
Then I frost the top of the cake lightly.
Then I stuck on my brown M&M’s
(although, next time I’d uses Reeses Pieces b/c a package comes with WAY more brown and yellow)
Then I put on the yellow M&M’s.
For the ears, I cut one of the cupcakes in half, and just stacked part on each of the other cupcakes.
Frosted lightly to stick them together,
then again, just frosted around the outer edge, and then the top, and stuck M&M’s on top. 🙂
I didn’t do too many decorations.
We were outside.
The kids are 4.
I did a little banner again.
I also did a little welcome sign.
It was super easy.
I just found a couple pictures of Winnie the Pooh and Tigger.
My Silhouette cut them out, but it’d be easy to trace and cut as well.
Then I cut Pooh’s shirt out separately in red.
Then I just took a marker and free handed the leg and face on Pooh.
I also free handed all the black on Tigger.
I just looked at the picture and did it.
It wasn’t too tricky, but yeah. It wasn’t perfect either.
Here are the pictures I used for the Pooh and Tigger.
