I thought it would be pretty easy given the characters are pretty simple shapes and colors. It was more than I thought it was going to be. But it was fun figuring out how to make them and then seeing his face when they were done. He would be so excited to wake up and see the progress of the cake. Brandon even helped out with this one! I think he just wanted to see how it was sculpting with fondant. He wasn't too amused as he thought he was doing a horrible job (which he didn't). He did the elephant (ellyvan) and pig (zooter) and helped with the trees. Rowen and Corbin were so happy when they were finally able to eat a Beetle Bug (who are the tiny"playful kids" of the jungle and eager to learn).
I couldn't find a good picture online, so I took one of the TV.
Here it is! We didn't do all the characters. There are a few episodes that have mud puddles in them so we put Zooter in mud (melted chocolate) cause we figured the kids would get a kick out it, which they did. The whole thing is edible too.
Lily looking at all the piecesRowen also got a 'Splosion Man t-shirt for his birthday that we had specially made for him. As you know it is one of the games that Twisted Pixel (company Brandon works for) did. And Rowen loves the game! His excitement when it came in the mail.
