Total Time: 2 hours

This Bluey Cake Tutorial is so great for birthday celebrations and more fun!


  • 1 oz Black Fondant
  • 1.5 oz White Fondant
  • Small Egg or Oval Shaped Cookie Cutter
  • Large Piping Tip
  • 2 long Skewers
  • Sky Blue Gel Food Color
  • Royal Blue Gel Food Color
  • Ivory Gel Food Color
  • White Buttercream
  • 8 inch cake
  • 1-2 tbsp vodka or lemon extract, optional



    1. Using a serrated Knife cut off the “dome” of the cake, while still in the pan (cooled)
    2. Cut off 1.5 inches of cake and then cut it into 3 pieces for the (2) ears and nose
    3. Square off the remaining cake (use the scraps for cake pops!)

    To make the ears:

    1. The two outer pieces of cut cake will be the ears.
    2. Make sure they are the same size and notice the direction they are in.
    3. Freeze them while you work on the cake.

    Dye the frosting

    1. Use two cups of buttercream frosting and dye it with 1-2 drops of sky blue color.  Mix it well before adding more.
    2. Use 1/2 cup of buttercream for the nose and dye it with 1 drop of ivory gel food coloring.
    3. Note: the buttercream needs to be VERY soft, if its not pop it in the microwave for 4 seconds

    Assemble the head

    1. Add a dollop of buttercream to the cake board where you want the head to be positioned leaving space for the nose.
    2. Place the squared-off cake upright onto the board.
    3. Frost with the sky blue buttercream, add more than you think you need (using a piping bag is helpful)
    4. Use the icing smoother to remove any excess frosting 
    5. For the best smooth result, use a plain white Viva paper towel (no other brand works)
    6. Once the frosting has crusted (you can touch it with your hands without frosting being on it), you can gently lay the paper towel on it and smooth it out with your hand by gently rubbing the paper towel.
    7. Place in fridge to cool for 15-20 mins
    8. Or (without paper towel method)
    9. Pop the freshly frosted cake into the fridge and let it chill for 15-20 mins.
    10. Remove from the fridge and use your hand to smooth out the frosting.  It doesn’t have to be perfect as we need to add more frosting, but as smooth as possible.

    For the nose

    1. Place the middle piece of cake up against the square to create the nose.
    2. Add the ivory buttercream all over the nose, careful not to get it onto the blue.
    3. Smooth it down. 

    For the ears

    1. Dye the leftover sky blue frosting royal blue.  If you need to add more buttercream so you have enough to complete the eyes and ears, do so before adding the royal blue.
    2. This is a two-toned coloring method.  You must dye it the lighter blue first then the darker blue to get the deeper shade.
    3. First, add frosting to where the eyes will be.
    4. Position the ears where you’d like them to go, then add the skewers behind them to hold in place.
    5. Frosting the ears with the darker blue frosting, again, adding more than you need.
    6. Use the frosting smoother to clean up the rough edges and smooth the cake out.
    7. Place the cake in the fridge while making fondant pieces

    Fondant accents

    1. Be mindful that when working with fondant you may want to use plastic gloves.
    2. Knead the white fondant until smooth and no longer sticky.  If its sticking to your hands, dust them with 1 tbsp cornstarch or powdered sugar.
    3. Dust your surface with 1 tbsp cornstarch or powdered sugar and roll out the white fondant to ½ inch thickness.
    4. Cut out two eyes with either a small egg or an oval cookie cutter. A circle cutter will also work, just compare the size to the cake before continuing.
    5. Once the eyes are cut out, knead and roll out the black fondant.
    6. Use the open end of a small piping tip to create the black dot for the eyes.
    7. Use a lightly moistened paper towel and rub it against the back of the black dot.
    8. Position it on the eye and let dry for 2-3 mins before moving.
    9. Re-roll the black fondant and roll out a thick piece. Use a large piping tip to cut out the circle for the nose.
    10. Use your fingers to lightly press in the sides creating a triangle for the nose.


    1. Remove the skewers from the head.
    2. Frost the back of the ears.
    3. Press the eyes and nose into place. (if they won't stick, add a small amount of water to the fondant).
    4. Tada! You’ve made Bleuy’s head!


    You could use the Smores Style marshmallows for the eyes with chocolate candies for the pupils. (large marshmallows won't be large enough, you need a jumbo one).

    If you accidentally have an issue with colors bleeding, you can use vodka and a paintbrush to rub it off (make sure the brush stays clean.

    The vodka will evaporate within minutes, nothing will taste like alcohol nor does it have any effects on children.

    Do not try and use store frosting you need buttercream from the cake decorating item - it's different.  You can also make Swiss, Italian, French, Royal Icing, American Crusting, or Mock Buttercream.
