Cakes With Spring
*Grumble* Oh sorry, we are a bit hungry. Spring is here and we think it is time to celebrate! In honour of spring we would like you to make Spring in Neopia themed cakes. These should be entirely edible and they should keep with the theme. Feel free to be creative and don't just stick with the cakes on the site already. Please tell us what your cake is of and what flavour it is in the description. We're judging the cakes on yumminess, and overall creativity.
Eight winners receive the Random Contest avatar, 10,000 NP and an item of DOOM.
Novaimu enjoying the spring time
My cake is a chocolate with chocolate chips flavoured cup cake, decorated with leavs and flowers made of gumdrop and a kacheek (representing novaimu) made of coloured marzipan covered with unflavored jelly to give it some glow. It took me a long time to bake and decorate it so I hope everyone apreciates it. Thank you ^^
Spring flower negg cake
This cake is called "Spring flower negg cake" and was invented and created by me : ) It's a lemon cake in negg shape. Neggs are perfectly fitting to spring and easter, so I thougt about a fresh flavour (juicy lemon) together with something out of Neopia. There is a flower on top and a ribbon with bow around the negg/cake.
250g butter, 250g sugar, 250g flour, 4 eggs, 1 pack vanilla sugar, 1 pack baking powder and 1 lemon (juice of it). 20-40mins on 140-150 degrees C depending on the height.
The topic is fondant with lemon juice too. (and a bit food coloring).
I hope you enjoy the cake and want to eat it badly like me xD
Lawyerbot's spring tea party
I have decided to make a Lawyerbot themed spring cake, because I think he is very cool and deserves a cake in his honor. Spring is here and everything is flourishing, the days are warm and sunny and all the petpets are enjoying in the sun. So Lawyerbot has decided to take a break from all the paragraphs and Wingoball and to have a lovely tea picnic/party with one of his beloved Usuki somewhere in the grassy meadows of Brightvale.
The cake itself is a almond rainbow cake ( I mean, rainbows are very spring-y :) paired with a lemon butter cream. The decorations are made from fondant and marzipan (+ some chocolate), and tinted with food coloring.
TMMMDI Honey Cake
"The Meepits Made Me Do It" Honey Cake.
This cake depicts two (out of thousands of) meepits enjoying a spring morning somewhere on a blossomy field where beautiful flowers grow. If you are lucky enough- you may escape your ultimate fate of death by torture and find some sparkly neggs on your way out!
The cake is honey flavored, with a sugary cream made from.. well sugar and sour cream :D In between layers I scattered some walnuts. All decorations are made from marshmallow fondant and colored with that assorted food coloring set that you are always scared to pick up at the grocery store due to it being on the top shelf and covered in several layers of dust. Tasted wonderful!!!! :D
Springtime Negg Cake
What Neopian doesn't love Neggs? And when they're perched on top a mound of cake, they're even better! Happy Springtime, everyone! xD
Twelve lucky people have 5,000 NP, the Random Contest avatar and an item whizzing their way.
snorkle and buzzer
These cupcakes are made of butter, crystal sugar, eggs, milk and baking powder. They have a coconut flavor made out of cocos powder. The cakes are decorated with colored sugarpaste.
Super Springtime Negg
This negg is covered with Springtime joy. Beware of lingering Buzzers! This is a honey cake filled with lavender infused buttercream. The outside of the negg is decorated with vanilla buttercream icing.
Glyme celebrates Spring!
This is a Lemon Chiffon Cake filled and crumb coated with vanilla buttercream, and I covered and decorated the cake with different color of marzipans. For the marzipans, I used cocoa powder to color it soil brown and food colors to give it grass green and flower pink. The whole Glyme is made out of marzipan! The little blue flowers are made out of sugar, and I used dark chocolate to do the writing on the cake. The cake is completely edible. YUMMY!!
Spring Slorg Cake
For my cake, I made a sheet cake from scratch. Its chocolate :D! My cake is of a pink slorg, and a pretty spring flower to go next to it. This cake is for heavy icing lovers like me, since it is coated in white icing and then decorated over that. The icing tastes great, the cake wasn't so bad either. It was a little moist though XD
Neopia in Bloom!
What says spring in Neopia more than a blooming neopian garden? Neopia in Bloom! is a homemade coconut cake with whippy cream cheese frosting. The cake took 1 hour to make and the frosting took 1.5 hours to make. (The frosting should only take 10 minutes, but I don't own an electric mixer.) It took 4.5 hours to make the flowers and decorate the cake, making for a grand total of 7 hours.
Cream 1c. butter with 2c. sugar. Add in 5 eggs, 2tsp. coconut extract, and 0.5c. milk. Mix in 3.5 oz shredded coconut. Mix in 2c. flour and 1.5tsp. baking powder. Pour batter into 2 greased 9in. round pans and bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. (Or bake in bundt pan for 1hr.)
Mix 16oz room temperature cream cheese with 1c. powdered sugar until smooth. (Add more sugar if you like it sweet.) Slowly add in 16oz thawed whipped topping and mix until it is completely smooth. Add food coloring if desired.
The flowers, trees, and other decorations are made of tootsie rolls, tootsie fruit rolls, salt water taffy, chewy spree, chocolate covered rocks, candy coated sunflower seeds, and Swedish fish. I also used marshmallows to give the trees volume and toothpicks for fangs and the kiko gnome's fishing pole. To make most of the decorations you need to heat up the tootsie roll/taffy in your hand and squish it around until it is pliable enough to mold into the desired shape. Heat them up in the microwave for a few seconds if the candy is particularly hard.
The items represented on the cake are: blue fan flowers, fishing kiko gnome, fuzz collars, heart fruit tree, mini waterfall pond, negg muncher, negg tree, perfume mallows, rude daffodil, savage daffodil, sillie daisy, veggie paving stones, and yolkalia.
Melty Rainbow Cybunny Cake
This is a two layer raspberry flavoured sponge cake with fresh whipped cream and raspberries and blackcurrants in the middle. The rainbow is made from cream with food colouring added. The Cybunny is made from icing, with the face details crafted from individual chocolate sprinkles; and the pink bits are pink sprinkles. Really fruity taste!
Easter Negg Cake
This is my Easter Negg Cake featuring four Easter themed neggs on top of a (very tasty) field of grass. What better way to spend spring in Neopia than sitting outside and enjoying a couple neggs?
Chocolate Pteri Nest
This is a Pteri nest made of chocolate shortbread, filled with dark chocolate and candied angelica and some sprinkles. I thought the hardest part would be weaving the shortbread dough which was quite fragile but making the egg was much more difficult! It's a Baby Ptery (well, it's an egg) made of chocolate, covered with a thin layer of sugar and decorated with orange frosting. I can't wait to eat this cake, even though I feel bad for wanting to eat a baby. Oh well, I'm sure it is going to be delicious!
This entry is a showcase of Scoaches and Draphly. Cupcakes were baked with White Cake Mix, frosted with Red Frosting (Scoach's) and White Frosting (Draphly). Fondant cutouts were then used to make the body of both petpetpets; finishing touches added were the Licorice Antenna.
Yellow Patterned Easter Negg Cake
Nothing says Spring in Neopia to me more than the Festival of Neggs. I made this Yellow Patterned Easter Negg Cake in honor of this year's festivities. The cake is a 2 layer chocolate pudding cake, hand carved in the shape of a negg, with homemade chocolate frosting and homemade fondant covering /decorations. The bushes surrounding the negg are made of fondant and the grass is green royal icing piped around the cake. The stem and leaves of the negg are made of fondant covered rice crispy treats with toothpicks holding it in place on the cake.
Spring Time in Neopia's Habitarium
My entry is a large rice crispy pinchit on a chocolate cake. The chocolate cake represents the habitarium soil. It is covered in green frosting to represent grass. There's also a large habitarium flower in front of the pinchit, as well as small blooming flowers all along the edges of the cake. It took me 4 hours to make I hope you like it!
Spring Fashion Cake
Here we have a Striped Flotsam modeling the Lily Pad Flower Dress. Made with Funfetti cake mix, eggs, oil, water, food coloring, and frosting. I first drew the image on the computer, printed it as a reference, and then carefully cut the cake into the correct shape. Then added food colored frosting. This took about 3-4 hours overall.
Spring with neggs
It's an apple cake featuring a Kacheek enjoying Spring by walking in a field filled with flowers and neggs.
Ingredients of the cake:
eggs, flour, butter, sugar, apples.
The figurines are made of home-made marzipan: sugar, almond powder, colour additives (for consumption of course ;) ) The leaves are made of eatable paper. An attempt at frosting came out of a box and is in fact edible, though didn't work out as wanted :)
