5 Tips to the Cartoon Cake:
1: Piping the edges of the cake in black is what gives it that ‘cartoon-look’
2: You can use black fondant or black buttercream to achieve this look. But the fondant makes the cake look cleaner with a nicer finish
3: Using a pastel color palette for your cake gives it that more old-fashioned cartoon vibe.
4: When piping around the edge of your cake, don’t have full, complete lines. Having disconnected lines is what gives it that optical illusion.
5: If you do any toppers on it such as a candle stick or whipped topping dollops, trace over the top of each topper with your fondant or buttercream to complete that cartoon-look.
