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.
THIS IS JUST A TEST CAKE…GETTING READY FOR THE BIG DAY.
NONE OF THESE PICTURES WERE FIXED IN ANY WAY.
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.

Then pour in the mixes one by one.
DO NOT MIX
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.
It smelt like something you would spray in your hair and not on a cake.
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!
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.
my apologies if I scared anyone lol.
Crystal (the bff), Kris (the hubby), Jude (the bubby), and Me!
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
