Skylanders Birthday Cake

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!




 Hi, I 'm married to Logan the co-author of this site and I am a very busy mom of three boys. I enjoy crafts, baking, cookie and cake decorating. I love to read, knit, scrap, sew costumes and try new things. I have recently taken an interest in the steam-punk style and I love vintage style clothing as well as dabbling in decorating parties. I'm currently learning all the ins and outs in the adventures of homeschooling. It truly takes a lot of determination and I only make it through by depending on my rock Jesus Christ. So that's enough about me; check out our site and have a great time!
