Who wouldn’t want a bag full of Shopkins jumping out of a cake to wish you happy birthday? I’d personally rather have a bunch of cake decorating supplies, but I’m not a 7 year-old little girl!
Rather than recreate one of the hundreds of Shopkins figurines, I was inspired to create the bag the little toys arrive in. Then spilling out of the top, a pile of little figurines (these were provided from the little girl’s personal collection).
The cake is a towering 6 layers of white cake held together with perfectly pink buttercream frosting. Despite its towering height, the cake was roughly 5 inches by 7 inches. Just the right size for a small birthday party.
The outside of the cake is covered in modeling chocolate to create the bag stripes and logo.
