My son loves the Disney show, "Rolie Polie Olie". It is a great show so I thought it would be really neat to make the main character for his birthday cake.
All of his body and shoes are cake, then just decorated with icing. His hands and shoulders are made out of fondant icing. His arms, legs and antenna are black and gray piping from the craft store just intertwined together. On top of the antenna is a pom pom. His eyes and nose are pieces of painted wood (it was a round ball cut in half). The buttons on his shorts are malt balls.
This is one of my cake decorating masterpieces! It was really fun making it and hope it will inspire someone!
The theme to my daughter's first birthday was Rolie Polie Olie.
The base of the cake was a large rectangular cake pan. Olie's body was made with a small round pan (like from the top of a wedding cake). The head was made with two 12in cake pans layered. We piped the frosting on, had the legs hang over and the shoes were just chocolate frosting piped thick.
The finishing touch for the cake decorating was a craft pipe in the top of the head with a fuzzy ball for the antennae.
