Does your child enjoy watching Blues Clues? This part cartoon, part live action show has been beloved by many young children for years now, and you may find out that your little one wants to have a themed blues clues birthday party this year. After all, who doesn’t love the wonderfully adorable blue spotted puppy dog who hunts down clues throughout each episode?
If you are not particularly experienced with cake baking and decorating, you may be feeling a little panicked. You may be wondering how on earth you are going to create a Blues Clues birthday cake that your child is sure to love. However, you do not have to panic and you do not have to spend laborious hours baking, frosting and decorating a perfect likeness of Blue or his owner, Steve. Instead, here are some easy to create ideas for a cake along the theme. Your child is sure to love any one of these.
For something simple yet fun and cute, you can make a cake that reflects the paws that mark the clues in the show. All you will need is a round cake and four cupcakes, taken out of their wrappers. Put the cupcakes around the large cake to form the shape of the paw and then ice the whole thing light blue. If you want, you can then use a darker blue icing to create the paw pads. Just like that, you will have a cake from the cartoon!
Another idea is to create an edible image using edible paper and inks, which you can buy online or at an office supply store. With this, you can print an image of Blue or you can print a whole scene from the show. Then, all you will have to do is ice the cake white and then add the image.
If you want to try your hand at something a little more challenging, you can always cut a sheet cake into the shape of Blue’s face. You can then frost it with different shades of blue to finish it up. This could be a little challenging though, and you may not want to tackle it just yet.
When you are planning your child’s birthday party, you will want to make sure each part of it reflects the things that they love. If they really enjoy watching Blues Clues, then they will be thrilled when you bring out their themed birthday cake.
