Skylanders Portal of Power Cake

So my not so little boy has turned 8 this past week.  Thanks to the help of friends on Facebook and Google+, suggestions were offered on the next theme of the birthday cake.  I made a Sonic topper and cake last year so I needed a new challenge.

My boy decided on Skylanders which for those of us don’t have computer game addicted kids, is a new Wii or Playstation Game.  It was a challenge to have “Zap” his favorite water Skylander raised off the ground on his four legs, but with patience (which I sometimes lack in abundance) Zap set hard and was able to be spray painted and turned out not too bad.  I find there is always room for improvement.

Sam and his friends at the party were amazed that it was made out of fondant and was edible.  It is always difficult when you are a cake decorator for you to create a cake for your children when they seem to have such high expectations – LOL.  Nothing beats the look on their faces though when you can pull it off.

Happy birthday my 8yr old boy.  Mum loves you to bits and I am so glad you ask for cakes and cake toppers that challenge me.

    Hi, I was wondering how much it would cost for the same cake topper as your sons?
    Thanks

      Hi Dale, Sorry for delay, your enquiry slipped through the system. The Skylander Cake Toppers are a custom made order which can be found in my Cake Topper section of my website. They would be $34 each. You enquired about Zap, on my son’s cake. I wouldn’t recommend him to travel via Aust Post as he is elevated and can easily break. As they are all so unique, if I can still help you out with a topper, please send me an email to jules@cakesbyjules.com.au as some just won’t make the journey by Aust Post and so I wouldn’t attempt to make them. So far I have made, Zap (not posted), Eruptor, Wrecking Ball, FlameSlinger (not to be posted) and Trigger Happy (also not posted).
