I made a Pusheen Cat cake the other day, this is how :)
You will need:
-your favourite cake recipe
-your favourite icing
- 4 tooth picks
- white fondant
-black food dye (and colours of your choice for mini cake)
-a cake board or plate
-rice krispies (optional)
-clean paint brush and water
Step 1: Baking the Cakes
For this, you can use your favorite cake batter. I used vanilla but what ever you like best will be perfect .
I had two different sized round, glass Tupperware containers that were oven safe. I used the larger one for Pusheen and the smaller one for his little cake. This will work with any size round pans you have. Though the bigger your pan, the more layers you will need to get Pusheen to have the right height proportions.
I made five "6 cakes and two "4.5 ones. Once baked and cooled, cut the rounded tops off.
Step 2: Pusheen's Body
I stacked four of my larger cakes with cream cheese icing between each layer. I then trimmed off the top to make his head just a touch pointier. I used my last large cake to cut into filler for parts of his body that weren't quite fat enough. I cut the cake into half moons, then cut those again to wrap around the base of the cake tower. Any additional scrapes were used to stack on top of his head.
Step 3: Pusheen's Cake
Stack the two smaller cakes, again with icing between and cover the entire outside. I covered the cake with white fondant and the put blue on top to look like dripping frosting.
Step 5: Stripes
Pusheen has dark grey stripes on his body. I added extra black dye to my left over body coloured fondant to achieve the stripe colour. I rolled the fondant out thin and cut two large stripes for his back, four medium for his tail and three small for his head. You can use a clean paintbrush to brush on water that will secure Pusheen's stripes to his body.
Step 6: Adorable Little Face!
Pusheen has the cutest face ever, not to mention the simplest to recreate. I uses his stripe coloures fondant to roll round balls and stick on for eyes.
I rolled a long skinny tube and formed it into the shape of a "3" for his mouth.
For wiskers I took four tooth picks and cracked them a few times down the length of it. They turned out like little curved whiskers. You could use food dye to brush on these and stick them in, but I once again used a covering of fondant. I put two on each side of his mouth.
Step 7: Decorate the Cake
You can decorate Pusheen's cake anyway you like. I found a picture of Pusheen with a birthday cake that inspired this real cake, I decorated mine similar to his. Just ball up some fondant and make fun shapes. This mini cake is also the perfect place to stick your birthday candle!
Step 8: Silly Pusheen, Always Stealing the Show
I made fondant balls, similar to the ears and stuck them on for little hands to hold a sign. I just used regular computer paper to write a sign to be held.
Step 9: Bye Pusheen :(
Enjoy your hard work! :)
