I got a call from someone my mother referred to my site. She was wondering if I could make her grandson a cake. She asked if I could make a Beyblade Arena cake. I had literally no idea what that meant or what she was talking about, but I promised to google it and call her. I didn’t know what Yo-Gabba-Gabba was either, but we know I was able to make some cool Yo Gabba cakes!
Someone likened it to Crossfire from when I was a kid. I don’t remember if my brother had a Crossfire, but I do totally remember the commercials.
Now, I don’t really think this thing is as awesome looking as Crossfire, but a.)What do I know? and b.)Unless they have an AWESOME commercial like that, I don’t think anything could look as cool as Crossfire.
In any case, all that aside, I decided I would gladly make the cake. I knew I couldn’t make the arena super deep like that because they wouldn’t have any cake to eat! So I made it pretty shallow. I covered the cake with white fondant and then airbrushed the red on. Let me just say HOLY CRAP. That made my life so much easier. Making red fondant is SUCH a hassle and it always wants to turn pink. It takes up a ton of color and then ends up practically inedible and gives it a crap texture. No thank you. Because of that, I’ve been weary of making cakes with large amounts of red, but never again!!
It’s SO RED. So happy about that.
I made a couple little disc things. No idea what their technical term is. I mean… they’re not cars. They’re like… disc things. So yeah. I didn’t stick them onto the cake so the kid could pick them up and move them around and stuff lol.
Yup. So.. that’s Beyblade. Lot’s of red, not quite crossfire, possibly something to do with anime??? Just not sure haha. But I sure made it out of cake.
I’m getting started on a killer wedding cake tonight. I can’t wait to show you guys. This will be the second wedding cake I’ve ever made and it’s for two special people who I adore. So I have to make this cake super adorable just like they are! The colors are white, purple and black. It’s going to be very unique and I can’t wait!
