“So how do you feel about yellow submarine cakes?”
Thus began a conversation on Facebook with a friend of mine. The result is this here cake. Clearly, her newly minted 3 year old is awesome since Yellow Submarine is his favorite song. I was super stoked to start this cake–I just knew it was going to be fun. I wasn’t wrong.
The spouty things! I loved how these turned out.
Of course it needed a rudder. And cute water bubbles.
I knew I had to figure out a way to get the Fab Four on the cake somehow. Solution? Edible marker and portholes. Let’s look a little closer at John, Paul, George and Ringo. (Not in that order.)
And yes, John’s glasses are a little … well, I don’t know what’s going on with his glasses. Just remember that I was working on faces smaller than a dime. That’s tiny, y’all!
I was really happy with the way this cake turned out. Perfect for celebrating a win over the Meanies. Or a certain little boy’s third birthday. Did I mention that my friend is also a nurse (my favorite!) at my daughters’ pediatrician’s office? She is. I have totally earned popsicles for life now, shot or no shot. Avery and Zoe can thank me later.
Would you like to try your hand at a yellow submarine cake? Lucky for you, I made a handy dandy tutorial.
