When Hank contacted us to create a Plants vs Zombies cake, he had to also send a lot of very specific character pictures because I was not familiar with the game phenomenon until I received his email request.
And the more I researched the game or mentioned it to coworkers, the more I realized I was likely part of the 2% population that hadn’t heard of it before.
I had so much fun creating this cake for Jaren’s birthday! The characters were adorable…so much fun to model.
We started with an 8″ square red velvet cake and iced it in green buttercream.
I modelled the figures using modelling paste (a mix of fondant and gumpaste). I supported Sunflower using a wooden dowel.
Jaren’s favourite character is Melon-Pult. So I modelled Melon-Pult using a cake pop interior rather than solid modelling paste, that way Jaren would enjoy eating him even more. 🙂
My favourite character? I am torn between Sunflower and Chili Bean. I like the characters that smile. 🙂
Happy Birthday Jaren! We hope you enjoyed your cake as much as we enjoyed making it for you!
