My kids have not yet discovered the Yo Gabba Gabba craze, and I think I'm glad. I watched a 30 second trailer on the web and wanted to stab my eye with a fork. But it seems to have a cult following. Who am I to judge? I used to watch Kroft Superstars and think it was good (check out channel 3 on Saturday morning if you need a dose of nostalgia!) I think my mom gave me the best compliment on this cake: "wow, you managed to make those ugly characters look cute!" And it did turn out really colorful and fun! I made a vanilla cake with strawberry filling and covered it with white fondant. I used watered-down food color to paint a color changing background on the cake. Then I added fondant to create all the different "lands" from the show. I cut all the characters out of fondant and attached them to the bottom tier: Toodee, Foofa, Muno, Brobee, and Plex. Then I topped the cake with a small rectangle cake covered in gray fondant that I made into a boombox. The final addition was the birthday boy's favorite character: DJ Lance Rock. I actually made him 3D out of fondant using a push mold. Then I made him popping out of his radio and holding the birthday sign. It was an adventure in cake making! I hope I did the show justice.
