My son turned 10 a few days ago. One of the things I love to do for my children is make them special birthday cakes. That’s probably because I grew up pouring over the Australian Women’s Weekly Birthday Cake Book.
Now there’s Pinterest!!! So many fantastic ideas!
This year, my son requested a cake in the shape of the Loot Llama from Fortnite. (It’s a pretty popular game right now.)
So here is my cake-making effort for you to enjoy. I hope you are inspired!
I baked the cake, which was a butter sponge cake — next time I’ll use something a little more dense.
I googled a picture of the loot llama.
I spent so time drawing it on paper. No photos of that though, they were pretty pathetic, I just needed to get dimensions right.
I cut out the shape, then made a double batch of buttercream icing and the 3 colors I needed. I made the eye and reins from fondant. Then I iced the cake using a flat icing nib
…et voila… a Fortnite Loot Llama birthday cake.
I forgot the saddle bag. But hey, I was pretty happy with the outcome and so was my son. And that is what counts!
Life and blessings,
