Yo Gabba Gabba Rainbow Birthday Cake – Muno!

Jude’s Yo Gabba Gabba Rainbow Birthday Cake

Because he cant speak, other than “MaMa“, “Up”, and “DADA”, we picked one of our favorite characters from Jude’s favorite show Yo Gabba Gabba for his cake.
I was searching high and low for ideas online and thanks to
I found everything from where to purchase party supplies down to our invitations. My invites are so cute I have to blog about them too, that will soon follow…I promise.
The only difference might be the use of flash. Get ready for a colorful post!
We wanted a special cake for our son’s first birthday, so we tried the “rainbow” method.
We bought a box of white, not yellow, cake mix and followed the directions on the box.
Then you want to measure out as many parts as colors you want.
We used 1cup of Red, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple.
(DecAcake food coloring)

Then pour in the mixes one by one.
Here are a few tools we used.
DecAcake food coloring for the cake mix. Duff Icing for under the fondant (acts as glue). Duff Cake Graffiti – Red (if you can find red fondant use that). Sparkle Gel – Black for the center of his eye. The fondant that i used was a brand by Michael’s Craft Store in White.

Dust the surface you are working on with powdered sugar.
Roll the fondant out thin, lay over cake, smooth out, and trim around the edges.

If you have the red fondant…you are lucky and can skip the next step.
This is where the cake graffiti comes in to play.

Many layers of this product.
It smelt like something you would spray in your hair and not on a cake.

Kris and his friends, back in high school, had their own graffiti aka tagging crew.
This project brought back some memories.
It took us about 2 hours at the most in decorating alone.
I’m sure it would have been faster if we weren’t teasing each other,
but we definitely had a good time making this cake.
As we made more cute into this cake,
the colors were every where and brighter than expected!

Time to eat our master piece!
This was the hardest part, after all that work, it took a moment of silence
before I was able to cut into this cute red monster.
As the picture below will explain itself, this was not a fashion or beauty post…
my apologies if I scared anyone lol.
Crystal (the bff), Kris (the hubby), Jude (the bubby), and Me!
I hope this post helped anyone that was thinking about saving money on a birthday cake,
but still keeping it fun and creative.
My son loves Yo Gabba Gabba, and if your little one does too don’t forget to check out
