Plants vs Zombies Cake

Today was a great day! The sun was shining, I got to spend some time in the garden, and I delivered the Plants vs. Zombies cake!! This cake was so much fun to make. I even found myself giggling as the characters came together.  I really don't have pictures or directions for the characters but I made them from fondant (marshmallow fondant)  and basically just played around until I got what I thought looked great.  I also had lots of 'artistic direction' from the Boy and Hubby as they play this game and know more about the characters than I do.
The cake is my favourite devil's food cake recipe and the rest is just a lot of fun!  I hope the birthday boy enjoyed his cake!

Here are the characters I made to put on the cake.


Here's the cake for the characters to rest on!


And the cake all put together!!


Sooooo much fun!!

  5. Thank you everyone, Yes the characters are edible, you just have to watch out for tooth picks in a couple of them.

  15. How much fondant did it take to cover the cake and make the characters? My son has requested a PvZ cake for his birthday and I'm trying to figure out if I need to make more than one recipe of the fondant. Thanks! :)

  17. Thank you so much for the lovely comments on this cake!
    I used only one batch of fondant for this cake, but I also used some already coloured fondant I had stashed in the freezer. most likely it was equal to one batch of the Marshmalow fondant. It was so much fun to make this cake!
