Smurfs Birthday Cake and Cupcake Ideas
Get ready to get Smurf'd - Those Little Blue Smurfs are going to make a come back with the new Smurf's Movie due to hit theaters in August 2011. I am so excited for this one because I was a HUGE Smurf Fan and Collector when I was a child and watched all the cartoons every Saturday Morning.
I am excited that my own kids will now get to experience the magic. Even though the new Smurf's Movie will be a more current 3D version of the Cartoons we all knew growing up. Oh well times change, but I am sure the story line will be similar.
So I thought I would get a head start on the Smurf Birthday Party craze soon to come with some Smurftastic Ideas for Smurfs Birthday Cakes and Cupcake Ideas. Hopefully you be inspired to get Baking up some Blue Goodness for your Smurf Party.

Just a little Smurf Refresher for you
Far, Far Away, in a little mushroom village live a group of little blue pixies in short trousers and white bonnets called Smurfs. Only as tall as 3 apples, they speak in 'Smurf', a language only they understand. The Smurfs are carefree, peaceful creatures that live in harmony with nature.

Smurfs Cake Toppers and Edible Images
Like I said there is help out there for us when creating a Smurf Birthday Cake. Currently you can find some nice Smurf Cake Toppers and Even Edible Smurf Cake Images to place on top of your cake.
Edible Cake toppers simply get placed right on top of your baked and frosted cake and the image is completely edible. You can add an edge around it using Candy or Frosting.
The Cake Toppers usually consist of plastic pieces that get positioned on the top of your cake and while you cannot w\eat those your child can keep them as a keepsake.

Create a Smurfs Mushroom House Cake
Have some fun and create a Smurf Mushroom House Cake - Do not be intimidated by the Fondant in the photo to your right because you can make this with regular frosting too and still get the effect you want.
So How do you Make a Mushroom Shaped Cake?
I wondered about it to and thought one easy way would be to Bake some Cakes in smaller round baking pans and stack them for the stem. Then Bake a Cake in a Domed Shaped Baking Pan or an oven safe Round Glass Pan for your Mushroom Top.
Smurf's Houses are made up of all different Colors so just look at some of the toys available and choose one you would like to re-create. Then base your Frosting Colors on that .
For your Doors and Windows you can use Chocolate or Graham Crackers.Then have fun decorating with Candies and of course some of the many Smurf Figurines available.
Add some Green Frosting with some Green dyed Coconut for Grass around the base - maybe stick in some Candy Flowers or a Tree or Two to give your cake that Smurfy Whimsical Feel.
