My owl cake was one of my most popular posts so today I though I would share a cake I made when my little man turned 2. He wanted a "Turious Gorge" cake. (Curious George for those who don't speak fluent baby) :) Well who doesn't love Curious George, I mean he is adorable and fun and always willing to take a risk.
To make the rest of his face cut away a small curve out from your cake and stack your oreos (or whatever cookie you like) to make his ears. Then frost the ears heavily with the light brown frosting and cover the rest of his face with the dark brown.
I traced out his eyes, nose, and mouth with my toothpick before I filled them in with frosting.
I piped them in very carefully using my piping bag (could use a Ziploc if you don't have one) and my small tip. (Wilton #4) I used my toothpick and finger to pat some of the lines out and adjust them.
My cake wasn't perfect but it made my little one very happy to have Turious Gorge :) And you can't beat his smile.
Oh and just a side note. I made his birthday shirt by finding pics online and then playing around with them and printing onto iron on paper.
