This Paw Petrol Cake with Chase Cake Topper is a based on a popular TV series for kids. The dog's name is Chase and so adorable that all kids love him. Here's a video tutorial on how I made this paw petrol cake with the dog chase cake topper tutorial.
I made this cake for a little Sloane who turned three recently. I've been making a cake for this family for a while now. One of the amazing things about being a cake decorator is you get to know some of the kid's programs you otherwise would not.
I only know the kids' programs my kids watch and play so when anyone comes to me with something new - I go.. the what now? Earlier I'd go to google to look for it. Now all I have to do is - Ask Aadi or Rhea!! - Oh, mama.. I know what it is..Aadi will get so excited, run to Google, to show me the images.
I tell you - If he ever becomes a cake decorator, which I doubt, he will have some amazing and gravity-defying cake ideas. Ha!!
So when Danielle told me she wanted a PAW Petrol Cake with Chase Cake Topper - obviously my first reactions was - what was that? Who is that? I loved the stuff I saw online. BUT time was an issue on this cake.
Yup, it was a last minute request and during the festive days of the holidays when the kids were on two weeks vacation. And we needed only an 8" cake so... had to think of something I could do in this time frame on a small cake.
Since the dog Chase was Sloane's favorite from the show I thought why not make his belt, paws and some dog bones on the cake. Danielle loved the idea.
Lost my camera images this time
Not sure how this happened I clearly remember taking pictures. I usually download them all together. With so many recipes happening I take way too many pictures. So think I must have forgotten to download this batch of images on the PC. Bummer.
Lucky I had taken six images on my iPhone and that's what I am sharing with you here. Phew! I hate not having good images on my cakes. I usually use a good DSLR for my cakes and food pictures so not having good images bother me.
Despite being a late order, I really wanted to make a video for this cake. I saw the kids so excited about it and I thought well it will be fun. I hope you like the video. The only issue is I feel terrible my hands and workspace is so messed up.
Note to self for next time - was your hands well after you color icing and remove all the unwanted tools from your works space when filming. Hopefully I will remember it next time.
Chase cake topper
Chase is such a cute guy in this program so had to get him on this PAW Petrol Cake. I loved the few images I saw online. I was actually hoping to find a tutorial on how to make him online out couldn't find any! Another reason I thought I must document making him.
If you know me - I don't have much patience with figures. But I think he turned out cute and I hope you find the little video useful.
About this cake
The cake is my Simple Moist Chocolate Cake recipe, filling with my Velvet American Buttercream and frosted with Chocolate Ganache. Here I am using Satin Ice fondant but you can use my Homemade Fondant recipe as well.
I do have a video coming up with me showing you how I made get these sharp edges on my cakes but for the purpose of keeping the video short, I just showed you the cake from after covering the cake with fondant.
The video covers how I made the belt and buckle, the paws and the bones, and of course Chase.
How to make the fondant plaque and name tags
In my previous video, I showed you have to make a few pretty fondant plaques and name tags and if you see that video you will see the one on this cake is way more simple and easy. You can find all the details on that video here - How to make Fondant Plaques and name tags
