Easy Beanie Boo Cakes

Super cute and super easy Beanie Boo cakes

Our house is full of small furry creatures with slightly creepy giant eyes. All three girls love beanie Boos and avidly collect them so we have rather a lot in the house. It was obvious that the twins both love a Beanie Boo birthday cake for their birthday. One loves cats and the other loves monkeys so I decided to make them a cake each based on their favourite toys. It actually turned out to be a really simple cake to make and they loved the end result.

As I was making two cakes I made a large batch of cake mix using this cake recipe.  Then I halved it putting cocoa powder and a teaspoon of orange essence and some grated orange zest into one to make a chocolate orange cake for the monkey. The other I added a teaspoon of vanilla essence into the other.  I baked these in a half sphere cake tin but you could use a circular cake tin and it would still look great. I then used a muffin tin and made 4 small circles of cake for the ears and nose of the monkey and the nose of the cat.

Monkey Beanie Boo Cake

  • 1 round chocolate cake
  • 3 cupcakes with the top sliced off
  • chocolate butter icing
  • vanilla butter icing
  • Liquorice allsorts

First I made the cake into a monkey face. This was very easy using the large cake as the face with two circles for ears and one in the middle at the bottom for the nose. This was the easiest cake to decorate as I simply used a spatula and spread the chocolate icing roughly on the cake to look like fur. I then made a face shape over the nose and two round circles for the eyes. If I was going to do this cake again I would use a piece of fondant and cut it into shape for the face as this would look neater. I then stuck on two yellow liquorice all sorts for the eyes. The finishing touch was to use a thin piping nozzle to pipe the nose and smiley mouth.

Cat Beanie Boo Cake

  • 1 round cake
  • 1 cupcake
  • vanilla buttercream
  • pink and black fondant icing
  • liquorice allsorts

The cat beanie Boo cake was slightly harder to decorate. I used a large round cake with a small circle of cake in the middle for the nose. I piped vanilla buttercream into fur using a star-shaped nozzle all over the cake and the covering the nose. I made two cats ears using the fondant icing, matching the pattern of the Muffin the Beanie Boo. I stuck on two pink liquorice allsorts for eyes and a pink jelly liquorice allsort cut into a cat nose. I rolled some pink fondant icing into thin strips to make the mouth and whiskers.

It was a lot quicker to decorate the cakes than I thought it would be. The liqourice allsorts made it look really realistic. I did try using a silver icing pen to make the eyes look a bit sparkly like a real beanie Boo but I don’t think it added much to the overall effect.

The finished cakes worked well for twins as they were a theme but also reflected their different personalities but you could easily make one cake on its own.
