Miffy Birthday Cake


The evolution of a Miffy birthday cake - apologies for the poor photos taken late at night

I was unable to find a recipe/template for a Miffy birthday cake for my daughter's 2nd birthday party so I decided to make my own. I borrowed a cake board from my sister and was limited to its size: 30cm x 45cm. I then scaled it down slightly to fit a 23cm round tin and a 23cm square tin, so that I could bake both in my oven at once. Feel free to use my templates to make your own Miffy birthday cake (Template 1) (Template 2).

18/4/11: Photobucket has removed my templates from their website due to copyright reasons (grr!). If you would like the templates emailed to you please leave a comment below including your email address, however I can not guarantee a speedy response as I now have newborn twins at home.

I used the same basic cake recipe that I had used for her 1st birthday cake (a simple number "1") but this time I used Bakels Whip 'n' Ice for the icing. A cake making friend recommended this to my mum and it was ideal; it is very white (essential for a white bunny) and quite easy to use. I think you have to purchase this from specialty cake decorating stores. Miffy would not be complete without her black outlines so these were done with licorice straps, licorice discs for eyes (2 year olds love licorice, right?!).

Although I couldn't bear to eat a piece at the party (having had my fill of cake cut-offs and icing the previous night) I would say it was a big success. The best part of the day for me was when Nina was asked what her favourite thing about her party was, and she replied "my Miffy cake". She is not even old enough to know how to suck up to her mother so I was thrilled and very touched.

  1. I love your miffy cake, it's perfect!! Just wondering if i could get a copy of your templates that you used. I realize that you previously posted them online but it seems that they were removed by the site for copyright issues. My 3 year old daughter loves miffy, so i'm making one for her birthday next week. Thank you very much! Bonnie

  5. Hi I would love the templates for the cake please. It's amazing. I plan to make it for my daughter's first birthday party. I've a question as well if that's okay. Was it hard to get the licorice strap to sit so beautifully on the edge of the cake? And do you have any tips on that? I can imagine I might have trouble with that part of the design.....! Thanks so much. Annie
