Scooby Doo birthday cake tends to be a great idea not only for celebrating kids’ birthday but also adult ones. Some great ideas include the Mystery Machine cake, cupcakes, edible decoration cake, as well as Scooby Doo picture cake.
You can get some unique and simple Scooby Doo cake ideas by doing a little research and preparation before the birthday or Halloween party. You can create a cake using a Scooby Doo-shaped cake pan, use an Internet image, store-bought characters or make a Mystery Machine cake. Use some imagination and creativity to make a haunted house cake.
The Scooby gang drove around in a van called the Mystery Machine. Bake a rectangular cake and cut a diagonal on the top left side of the cake for the windshield of the van. Use two chocolate donuts or chocolate frosted cupcakes for the wheels. Decorate it according to the cartoon with a picture from a Scooby Doo book or Internet picture. Use turquoise, black, orange and brown frosting colour with orange and brown sprinkles.
With edible photo ink and paper, you can print pictures of Scooby Doo from the Scooby Doo website or copy a photo of your child with Scooby Doo. You can even use a desktop publishing program to create Scooby Doo cake decor and use it to cover your cake. Wilton makes a moulded Scooby Doo cake pan that you can use to make a Scooby Doo cake. It comes with decorating instructions and has grooves and ridges built into the mould so that you don’t have to be artistic; it’s like painting by number.
Cupcakes are a nice alternative to cake for special occasions. Cupcakes don’t require a knife to cut or a fork and plate to eat. The portion sizes are already designated, so no one fusses over getting a “smaller piece” of cake than someone else. Consider using cupcakes instead of traditional birthday cake for a Scooby Doo-themed party. Create cupcakes that feature the faces of each of the characters in the Scooby Doo show. Use icing, sprinkles and candy to resemble the faces of Shaggy Rogers, Fred Rogers, Velma Dunkley, Daphne Blake and, of course, Scooby Doo himself. Create several of each cupcake design so that guests can choose their favourite character. Display the cakes on a colourful tray and be sure the birthday boy gets one of each character.
You can find Scooby Doo pictures on the Internet or in books and blow up the picture on a photocopier to copy onto a 9-by-13-inch cake. Trace the copy onto wax paper with gel frosting and when it’s dry enough, turn it over onto the cake to transfer the picture outline onto the cake. Decorate and trace with buttercream or gel frosting and sprinkles. If you are more advanced in decorating, use fondant pieces in brown, black, white and orange to make a Scooby shape to put on top of the cake.
