We’re in love with colorful cakes today and have one more to share with you. We made this giant 3 and a half foot cake for our husband’s birthday kids, yeah that’s it kids—and it was more fun than a barrel of monkeys. It’s not as hard as you might think, click through to see how to make a giant swimming invertebrate of your own!
Making a 3.5′ octopus from cake takes less effort than you think, but does require the use of 2 cake boards to keep things together. If you make this fun cake for a birthday celebration, you can stick candles in your poor octopus, or make a smaller cake for candles on the side, the choice is yours. Here’s what you’ll need:
• Sheet Cake
• Rice Krispie Cereal
• Marshmallows + Butter
• Fruit Loops Cereal
• Nerds Candy
• 2 Cake Boards
The balance of the recipe is here.
(Ed. note: BTW, my birthday is August 12.)
