Plex the robot cake from Yo Gabba Gabba! This guy was dark chocolate with vanilla buttercream, covered and decorated in fondant. I really can’t wait to make more of the Yo Gabba Gabba characters in cake form in the future… ‘specially the super hairy green stripey guy! You really learn a lot about modern kid’s television and pop culture being in the cake biz. People are always asking you for things you haven’t yet heard of. Of course kids these days wouldn’t know about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, He-man and Pound Puppies, would they!??
My fave cutie modern kids books and TV shows include all of the Meomi characters, the Oliver Jeffers books that my cute little 3 year old nephew Brody so loves, and I get a kick out of Ni Hao Kai Lan — though her voice is slightly annoying (sorry, it’s true), the characters are SO CUTE! And they would make really cute cakes!!! Do I love Ni Hao Kai Lan because I myself am Chinese?? Quite possibly… but I think it’s so cute to think of a little kid living in middle America somewhere who knows how to say “How are you” in Mandarin because of this show… ^__^
