This is a cake I made for my son. He is currently very into anything Skylanders, so naturally I made him a cake. I found a lot of interesting ideas on the net but I ultimately let him pick the style. He was very happy with the finished product.
This was was a yellow and chocolate cake. The portal of power and elements symbols were made with fondant. The coloring was all hand painted with food coloring. Only someone who “knows” how the portal is supposed to look would care, but one of the more challenging details were the symbols in black all around the edge of the portal. It gave it that last little touch along with carving the shapes of stone into the sides.
This cake turned out really great and like with every cake I make I learned something new. It was great fun and tasted really good too!
Thanks for taking a quick peek!
