This Blues Clues birthday cake design was made for my friend's little girl who just loves Blue. I used two cake mixes and two cake pans, the first pan I cut out the ears and the second pan I cut out the head. For the frosting I used three cans of Betty Crocker white fluffy frosting using blue food coloring, to put on cake I used a rose bud tip on the cake decorator, for the spots I used darker blue sprinkles.
For the eyes I cut a thin sliver from a marshmallow and a sliver from a chocolate Easter egg. For the nose I cut the shape from scrap pieces of cake (not as thick as the cake just a sliver). For the mouth I cut a small section out of the cake and used a red gel frosting and TA DA. Blues Clues emerged...
I was pretty proud of this birthday cake design and it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I t d id take quite a while to do the blue frosting but when I saw my friend's little girl's face it was worth it!

I made a Blue's Clue's birthday cake design for my daughter's 3rd birthday. I used the Wilton Blue's Clue's cake pan and directions. Here are my tips to make things easier:
Use the back of a baby feeding spoon to ice around the sides.It works great and is just the right size.and is a lot cheaper than the Wilton tools.
I use Fleischmann's Margarine for the Wilton Butter cream Icing. It has a great taste and good consistency. Make all the colors of the icing before you start and keep them in the fridge. It will make things go faster as you ice the cake.
I covered a plastic serving tray with Blue's Clue's wrapping paper and used some wax paper so it wouldn't come apart.
Here's My Blue's Clues Birthday Cake Design:
When I asked my son what kind of cake he wanted for his second birthday, his response was "My best friend, Mom." Therefore, my task from then on was to figure out how to make a Blue's Clues cake that would make my son smile!!!
As you can tell by the picture, my son not only smiled when he saw the cake, he LAUGHED!!! He wouldn't allow me to place candles on it and instead of the traditional "Happy Birthday" song, we sang the theme from "Blue's Clues."
This cake is SO EASY to make as you can see from the easy to follow steps below:
- 2 boxes (16 oz. each) pound-cake mix
- 6 chocolate-covered, cream-filled snack cakes
- 3 cans (16 oz. each) prepared vanilla frosting
- Royal blue paste food coloring
- 4 strips blue taffy (AirHeads)
- 1 strip pink taffy (AirHeads)
- Butter or margarine for greasing pan
- Flour for dusting pan
- 8-in. round baking pan
- 8- by 13-in. baking pan
- Toothpicks (for holding blue's paws)
- Blue's Cake Printable Templates
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour an 8-inch round baking pan and an 8- by 13-inch baking pan. Prepare cake mixes according to package directions. Pour 3 1/2 cups of batter into the round cake pan and the remaining batter into the rectangular one. Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean; about 35 to 40 minutes for the round and 45 to 50 minutes for the rectangle. Transfer the cakes to a wire rack to cool for ten minutes. Invert and cool completely.
Step 2: Print the Blue's Cake Printable Templates and place the paper templates onto the cooled cakes. Cut out pieces using a small knife. Arrange cake pieces onto a serving platter or cardboard covered with foil. Trim some of the scraps to make Blue's tail, arm, and paw. Stack two snack cakes together with a toothpick for her paws and feet. Cut a small wedge from one stack so her left foot will fit close to the cake.
Step 3: Divide 1/2 cup of frosting into two bowls. Tint one a dark blue and one a very dark royal blue. Transfer each color into a resealable bag. Spoon 1/4 cup of white frosting into a resealable bag. Tint the remaining frosting a light blue. Frost the entire cake with the light blue frosting using a small spatula.
Step 4: Heat the taffy in the microwave for a few seconds to soften. Roll out the blue taffy so that it's 1/8 inch thick. Cut out Blue's spots from the taffy and place on top of the cake. Reheat and re-roll scraps if necessary. For her tongue, cut pink taffy into shape and press the back of a knife down the center for the crease.
Step 5: Cut around Blue's eyes from Blue's face printable. Use a toothpick to mark the eyes' shape. Fill in areas with tinted frostings for paw and facial features.
