Cool Character Sweets

Sunday, February 7, 2010

What better way to celebrate Super Bowl Sunday than with some cool character sweets? (I know. That doesn't really make sense. Go with me here.)

Starting with Kung Fu Panda:

(Submitted by Barbara E. and made by Manjares)

And here's a little Homer Simpson made by the same baker:


An absolutely amazing Stewie from Family Guy:

(Made by Sandra W. A non-pro. Can you believe it?)

And an adorable Snoopy:

(Submitted by Jessi J. and made by Cakes By Francesca.)

For our fondant-free sweet, we have Sweetums from the Muppets:

(Submitted by Kate W. and made by her parents.)

And here's a great Mike Wazowski cake:

(Made by Caroline)

What better way to end than with Eeyore. Absolutely adorable!

(Made by London Cakes.)

"mike wyZOWski!"

I love that movie! I love your site, too, and hope John is feeling better and Jen is feeling cheerier!

Thanks for all the giggles!

Wow-- thanks for these! I now want a Peanuts cake for sure sometime, but if I were going to pick a Muppet, wouldn't be Sweetums. Sorry, Sweetums-- but an amazing likeness, just the same!


Great detail on Homer: Donut? Check. Gas expulsion? Absolutely.

Alison said...

That Eeyore cake is great, but can you imagine cutting into it? Oh the humanity!

Jules said...

omg... Sweetums!!!! That cake was awesome, although Eeyore might be my fave, just because he is so cute!

Mim said...

Eeyore is soooooo cute. I wuv him.

MJ said...

I was thinking the same as Alison - how could you cut into a cake that cute? Especially in front of children? (who wants Eeyore's eye?)

Michelle said...

That Eeyore cake is ADORABLE!

Because of this post, I'm now contemplating a Mike Wyzowski cake for my birthday next weekend... Hmm...

morriganscrow said...

Was Kung Fu Panda wearing Michael Myers' hockey mask....or was that just my imagination?

Anonymous said...

Is it just me, or should the decorator of the Eeyore cake used a different color or fondant for the greeting balloon? It looks like a puddle of drool leaking from the corner of his mouth.

Other than that, it was pretty incredible!

Brat said...

O.M.G. that Stewie cake has SMOKE coming out of it!

Kerri said...

I absolutely LOVE Sweetums! One of my favorite Muppets!

Nichols said...

anonymous - I was thinking the SAME thing about the Homer cake!! awesome.

Julie said...

I love the Mike Wyzowski cake!

But the Homer Simpson cake...Correct me if I'm wrong...Are those...Fart lines coming out of his behind?

WV: Dowscout. "My first grade daughter was far more interested in the stock market than in selling cookies, so she became a dowscout."

Anonymous said...

Eyeore is probably my favorite animated character ever! I'd love that cake.

wv: ingere What happens when I get to enthusiastic with the wife's lingerie!

Lou C Tiel said...

While the Snoopy cake is cute, I was disappointed to see "Damn you Red Baron."

I believe that Charles Schultz never used the word "damn" in any of the the Peanuts Gang / Peanuts cartoons and the correct quote is "Curse you Red Baron!"

john (the hubby of Jen) said...

Lou C Tiel,

I think you're right. I was wondering that myself but I just looked it up and the word was "curse."

Who knows? Maybe it was a mistake, maybe it was intentionally done that way at the customer's request.

Have a great day!

Jennifer said...

I was in love with the Snoopy cake and all ready to declare it my favorite until we got to Eeyore. That is an adorable cake!!

Sadie said...

Mike Wazowski!!!!!!!!! I love that movie! Awww....

The Boob Nazi said...

I didn't think it could get cuter than the Mike Wazowski... Then you put up Eeyore. Adorable.

Fleur said...

I heard of a kid's party where the kids cried when Elmo was sliced up!

It is sort of creepy to cut up a life-like looking cake of your favourite character.

Cakedreamer said...

I like the non-football cakes on a football day! That's my kind of post! :) The Snoopy one and Eeyore ones are my faves.

Amy said...

Oh, the Eeyore! I want one!

There are a lot of great Sweets this week, as ever... but, that Eeyore cake just took my breath away. And, as ever, that dreaded "baker unknown" tag makes me sad.

That's the one drawback of Sunday Sweets -- the occasional unknowns whose names have been lost to the eternal Internet ether. Because whoever baked that last cake (and some of the other 'unknowns' in Sweets past, of course) deserves a standing ovation.

Terry Lee said...

all the cakes are sweet and yummy today.

but that eeyore cake is The Best!! lily mae is one lucky lil girl!

eeyore is my very favorite pooh character. he's such a middle child (it takes one to know one)!

heh heh

"thanks for noticin'." ~~eeyore

Val said...

I love that you've posted cake from Manjares (all the way here in Chile!), their cakes are really pretty and really, really delicious. I bought my birthday cake there, marzipan, dulce de leche, and I forget what else. So good!

Melissa said...

I love the Snoopy cake! That looks like a great way to get a lot of servings into a sculpted cake.

I'd feel bad cutting up the Eeyore cake. I can just hear him complaining that oh well, it's what he was made for anyway...

Cheressa said...

I ♥ The Eeyore Cake!! I want that for my Birthday!! I also love the snoopy and the Mike Wyzowski one. =)

Hobbit said...

Snoopy FTW!!!!! :-)

And, speaking as a lifelong Peanuts nut, Lou C Tiel is correct. Charles Schultz would never use a curse word. Other than 'curse' which is what should have been on that cake.
But it's still flippin' adorable!

Kimberly Chapman said...

1) I agree with the others that it looks like Homer is farting. Which is funny if intentional, a little creepy if not.

2) Yes, I would believe any of the Sweets could be made by a non-pro. Nobody's ever paid me for a cake and I've won awards. Some of us do it for love of the art but don't have the time/energy/finances to start a business. Or we live in a state where a home bakery business is illegal and we don't want to risk running afoul of the law.

Anonymous said...

I thought Eeyore was drooling, too.

And what's up with the "Live Long and Prosper" behind Stewie? That's pretty funny.

Rhonda said...

I'd be very worried about having those candles that close to Homer's butt. Look at his diet, that guy has to have some serious gas!

Anonymous said...

I just want you all to know that I look forward to your blog every day!!! I am on a diet and somwetimes, even the rough ones are looking good!

Thx, Nicky

Anonymous said...

Just once I would like to see a 'sweet' that looks, you know, edible.

Robyn said...

Amazing. Sweetums doesn't look at all like he's made of poo. Which just proves it can be done. Take THAT, Wreckerators!

Relznik said...

I knew I recognised the style!!! Eeryone is by http://www.londoncake.com/Childrens%20Birthday%20Cakes%20Page%201.htm (scroll down to the 4th or 5th from the bottom - right hand side!!) - Relznik x

andygirl said...

Sweetums, lay your ugly head
Down upon your wretched bed.
Close your eyes and go to sleep,
Rest your head, you hulking heap.
Sweetums is so sweet and cute,
Go to sleep, you stu-pid brute.

martini said...

Great cakes, but the candle placement on the Homer Simpson cake creates an inadvertent jolly-colored fart blast!

Laurie said...

All of these cakes are absolutely incredible. The Eeyore one is my favorite. Eeyore is my favorite Pooh character and one of my favorite Disney characters so he was a shoe-in for me. :)

To Tammy Lee, thank you for clearing up the name issue on the Eeyore cake. I was sitting here thinking "wth would name their kid Lily-Moe?" lol It still kinda looks like Lily-Moe to me even after the clarification.

Elisabeth Marie said...

omg I love Eeyore!
Is Stewie eating a stick of dynamite???

Rachel said...

sweetums looks a little scary to me

deckardcanine said...

Eeyore looks like he came right out of the screen! Hard to believe that's a cake.

Confessions of a Closet Hoarder said...

Snoopy minus the expletive and Eeyore bring back such wonderful childhood memories! Snoopy looks like a collectible bisque figurine-just exquisite, and Eeyore just looks so huggable!

Stewie is amazing as well.

I'd have a hard time cutting into any of those cakes!

Mary said...

Those were so cute. The detail on these were incredible.

Pete said...

great cakes! I love your site, and read it every day.
p.s. I think stewey from family guy is spelled stewie.

Candee said...

Ohh the eeyore is the cutest!! i want that for my birthday!

Laura P. said...

that snoopy cake is SOOOO awesome! i was all ready to say that was my favorite of the post, but then i got to the mike wazowski cake and thought nothing could be cuter. but then eeyore? oh my gosh! absolutely adorable!!! most excellent post!

Emily said...

Stewey and Eeyore are amazing! Not sure I'd have the heart to cut into any of those masterpieces!

Anonymous said...

I want that Snoopy cake! :)

I have to question the placement of the candles on that Homer Simpson case though. Were they intentionally trying to make him look like he was breaking major wind?

Stephanie said...

Love the Snoopy and Eeyore cakes - too cute! :)

Mollie Starr said...

The Eeyore cake is simply perfection. It doesn't even look like a cake. It looks like a toy, or a piece of ceramic. Amazing.

shikishinobi said...

I wasn't sure if these cakes were wrecks or not. The first two raised questions. Kung Fu Panda's leg is bent in the wrong direction and Homer looks like he has a bad case of flatulance. But the other cakes were more convincing that this was an entry of actual class. Especially with Eeore [sic] and Stewey. Well done bakers on those ones. And the Snoopy one too, that was cute albeit disproportionate.

Fran said...

I made the Snoopy Red Baron cake, and yes I did get the quotation wrong, but I didn't realise until after it was done, and as it was a long running joke with a friend who also has misquoted Snoopy for as long as I have known him, I didn't change it.
Here's a link to my Flickr photostream where this was most likely found. I have already noted the error.

Danielle said...

I want that Sweetums cake for my birthday! He was one of my favorite Muppets when I was a kid (along with Bean, Robin, and Kermit).

DW said...

Bahaha! The panda's pose is the same as my cat's when he's cleaning himself, ahem, *there*.

bubbasmom said...

These were great, especially Eeyore!!

The only thing is that Snoopy doesn't swear.

feathergirl said...

These are such amazing cakes.

SweetDreams said...

Oh, Jen and John. I have been reading your blog for quite some time, and must say, as a fellow red pencil geek, I do laugh at all of the spelling errors. But now, I must point out that you have one.

It's Stewie you imbociles (as Stewie himself would say). LOL :) Keep up the good "work".

Zombie Edward said...

Awe! I want the Snoopy and/or Eeyore cake! My birthday is St. Patrick's Day, someone should remind my friends.

Sugarbear @ Bakingdom said...

I look forward to Sunday Sweets all week long! They are always so inspiring!! I love the Snoopy cake!!! So fun!!

eeyore19 said...

I think it goes without saying that I love the Eeyore cake. :)

Anonymous said...

While these are all lovely and well done cakes, I have to cringe looking at them--how many copyright laws are being broken here?

Mercy said...

I love Eeyore. That is one great cake.

Anonymous said...

I love the Sweetums cake, but I wish the nose had been smoothed out better. Nothing ruins good-looking food faster than a blatant reminder that it's had hands all over it while in preparation!

Especially if those hands were squishing away at it... :P

Nick said...

That Sweetums cake could have turned into a wreck so easily.

lisadh said...

I love all these characters and these cakes are awesome!

Great post!

Anonymous said...

lol@ DW's cat! :P

Karen said...

Woo Hoo - Sweetums doesn't look like a poo-head!! It really looks like brown fur (in an icing-y kinda way!)

Shelley said...

Congratulations to Fran, maker of the Snoopy cake, for the proper use of quotation marks, even though the quote itself was wrong.

Alex said...

OMG! is there anything more ironically sweet and precious than an Eeyore BIRTHDAY cake?! HeeHaw!
Are there thistle cupcakes??
made my day.

vb said...

oh, pooor eeyore!! you mean some one will actually cut him up???? what a wreck!

Lauren Borquez said...

NOOOOO DONT CUT EEYORE!

Pie said...

The butterly's middle is made of crap!

Teh Notebook Ghurl said...

I thought the Muppets one was supposed to be Chewbacca. And when I saw the Eeyore one, I was like, "That's a cake?!" Very cartoon-realistic.
