We’re celebrating Sylvia’s birthday today. For her birthday, I wanted to make a cute cake but one that would challenge me. After crossing an anti-gravity cake post a couple of weeks ago, I decided I wanted to make one. I thought that making a simple anti-gravity Kirby cake would be awesome. My sister-in-law, Sylvia, loves fruit so I thought I could use fruit snacks instead of chocolate. I love the end result and thought I would share with you guys the process on how I made this awesome 3D anti-gravity cake.
First you will need to make the rounded cake. I used Wilton’s Ball cake pan set because it will be easier to make Kirby’s round shape.
Use your favorite cake batter and bake on 325 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
Once the cake has cooled, wrap the cakes in saran-wrap and freeze them overnight. It will help with the decorating.
Once you’re ready to decorate, level your cakes to make that perfect round form.
Fill with your favorite filling. You can also add fruit if you want.
Lightly frost the cake with some of the frosting you have.
Carve out an oblong on the top part of the cake for Kirby’s mouth. Place in the refrigerator.
Using fondant, create Kirby’s feet, eyes, cheeks, arms and mouth. I added a cape to make it into Super Kirby!
Place all of Kirby’s parts in the right places.
To place the straw, I poked a hole through the fondant using a bamboo skewer. You can use something similar if you don’t have it. I also placed a cake pop stick in the straw for extra support.
For the anti-gravity party, I melted some candy melts and coated the straw with it. I also brushed some candy melt at the back of the fruit snack to make it stick more. I designed a small box with the birthday message but you can customize it to whatever you want.
And here is the end result! I hope you liked my anti-gravity Kirby Birthday Cake!
