I love Monsters Inc.!! Well, really, I love monsters in general. When I was pregnant with my son, I went monster crazy for him. Monster clothes, monster toys, everything monster/baby I could get my hands on. So, it's no surprise to me that he loves Monsters Inc. too! I got him a big Sulley plush that he wrestles with, sleeps on, and hugs. At times, when he wouldn't take his bottle from his dad or I, we would put the bottle in between Sulley's hands and pretend that he was giving him the bottle, and he would take it!
With that being said, we did his first birthday all Monsters Inc.! I wanted to make him a cake unlike any other cake(the first one has got to be special!). So I made Sulley! This is the second cake I've ever made.
Everything is icing, except for the teeth, which are pieces of white chocolate that I cut. The cake itself is a three layer chocolate cake. I cut out his shape and used the pieces that I cut off to make his nose and eyebrows more 3D. They turned out to be the perfect shapes!
This cake was rather large, but I still can't believe how long it took to do the icing work. I wanted it to look like fur, so I individually dabbed the icing on. One and half hours later, and my hand was sore!
After I finished Sulley, it just didn't feel right. I felt like he was missing something(besides his horns! lol.). And then it hit me! How dare you make sulley without mike waszowski!!!? So last minute, I made a whole slew of mikes to make up for my forgetting him in the first place.
Here's one before he was given a mouth.
And here is the finished products!
I have to admit, I used store bought icing....BUT...I mixed all the colors myself with white icing and dye. I'm a perfectionist and if nothing else was going to turn out right, AT LEAST THE COLORS WOULD BE RIGHT, I TELL YOU!!
The cake was a success along with the whole day. It was hard to watch it get destroyed! lol...but the color of the icing looked great on my little blue eyed dream!!
Thanks for checking out my cake!!
