Backyardigans Birthday Cake Idea #1

If you are not an artistic individual, then consider buying a Backyardigans birthday cake topper. Toppers are images or objects, such as figurines that come in a wide variety of styles. Buy a cake mix that suits your needs and bake it in a round or square cake pan by following the mix instructions.

Consider buying a confetti cake mix that is white cake with bits of blue, pink and other coloring through out. Confetti mix makes pretty and unique birthday cakes that contribute to the birthday theme.

Choose a vibrant color for the frosting. Good choices of coloring are neon green, aqua, purple, yellow or magenta. Allow the cake to completely cool before removing from your pan and frosting. Read over the instructions carefully on how to use the topper and place the pieces or images carefully on top of the cake. Some toppers will give a diagram for placements.

To give the Backyardigans birthday cake a prettier look, choose another coloring from the list above and create designs on the side or your cake with a piping bag with frosting. You could create waves, stars, flowers, or even spell out the birthday child’s name.

Backyardigans Birthday Cake Idea #2

If you want something different in shape than the traditional square or round cakes then consider buying a Backyardigans birthday cake pan. Cake pans are preformed to the shape and contours of one of the characters. The most popular of the cake pans Pablo the penguin. To use one of the pans, simply buy one then bake a box of cake mix by following the mix instructions. Allow the cake to cool and gently lift the cake out and place it on a cutting board.

Refer to an image of Pablo or any of the characters via online to match the exact coloring. You will need blue, yellow, white, red and orange frosting to make the Backyardigans Birthday cake authentic in looks for the Pablo character. Use this helpful link: Create Different Colors with Frosting to achieve the colors that you need if you cannot find them in stores. Icing sets can also be found online if you don't want to make your own frosting colors.

Backyardigans Birthday Cake Idea #3

The easiest route for Backyardigans birthday cake is cupcakes instead of an actual cake. You can buy cupcake images of the Backyardigans that are attached to toothpicks. Simply bake a dozen or more cupcakes by following a cake recipe for “cupcakes.”  Allow the cupcakes to cool and then frost them in bright coloring. Read the instructions to the cupcake toppers and stick them in cupcakes. Viola!
