Curious George Cake

Curious George Cake | Lil Miss Cakes

I may have fallen behind in sharing my custom cakes with you. Like really far behind! Here goes anyway! I designed this cake for my son’s 5th birthday party. At the time he was obsessed with Curious George. I have seen this image of George floating away with a huge bunch of balloons and thought it would be perfect for his cake! I made the bottom tier super tall so I would be able to fit George and his balloons. I made the top tier very short to balance out the cake. I covered both tiers with white fondant and then airbrushed in blue using a stencil to create the clouds. I was having trouble covering the large bottom tier and kind of messed up. I tried redoing the fondant once or twice and was getting frustrated! Instead of trying over and over, I figured the airbrushing would cover any major issues. I covered the bottom with cut out fondant clouds using this cutter in different sizes. I marbled some fondant for the balloons to give them a bit more texture. Curious George was made out of fondant. My son loved his cake! Happy 5th birthday!
