Yo Gabba Gabba! Cake

I made a Yo Gabba Gabba cake for a friend's birthday in April. He introduced the show to our daughter and it's one of her favorites. I told her (too far) in advance that we would make one for his birthday and four months later (with her still talking about it), we finally did it! The cake is covered in MMF, and I made the characters out of candy clay (the boom box is MMF). This is my first time working with candy clay. I thought I would try it and see if it turned out better than MMF. It's definitely easier to color and shape, but it was kind of greasy when you handle it too much, so I had to keep letting it rest for a few minutes before continuing. I ran out of time and didn't get to finish the scenes. My daughter was pretty excited about it, but then she kept asking me, "Where's Plex?" I told her there wasn't enough room on the cake for him. :o)
The cake is chocolate with cookies and cream buttercream:


  1. ADORABLE. Very inventive. I'm excited you started this! I've been meaning to do recipe blog forever, but then I started my sewing blog. I guess I can only have so many creative outlets. I'll be checking in on your culinary skills. Yummm.

  2. Very cute cake! My kids love Yo Gabba Gabba! Welcome to Tuesdays with Dorie :)
