Where the Wild Things Are – Top Cakes

Let the wild rumpus start!

In honor of what would have been children’s book author and illustrator Maurice Sendak’s 85th birthday, our top cakes highlight his most well-known work, Where the Wild Things Are. These cakes represent the fantasy world of Max, one filled with dark and dreamlike imagery of monstrous creatures romping around the jungle with their boy king.

Head and body are cake. For the arms I used RKT and the legs are all fondant. I did’nt wait for the legs to dry and they basically flatened out right before my eyes…LOLAll other details are Fondant, gumpaste and royal icing. TFL

This may be my favorite cake yet. I keep saying that, but who doesn’t love Max and his Wild Things? This was for a boy baby shower and knowing the parents, it will be a wild rumpus indeed!Yellow cake with IMBC, raspberry IMBC filling.

Max Where the Wild Things Are. Max is holding a artificial hip instead of a staff because this cake was for someone who was turning 40, LOVES Max and just had her hip replaced and that’s what she requested he carry.

Max is a chocolater transfer who gave me fits until I remembered I could “paint” with food coloring to get the shadows.

I made this using the design by alimonkey. I had never tried the FBCT before and it works so well! I’m a huge fan of that technique now. Thanks alimonkey for a great design!

I actually started out trying to make that cute valentine’s cake with the pink monster that says “wild thing” but that was a disaster. So I scraped off all the pink icing and tried to make this from the Childrens’ book “Where the Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak (the birthday theme was “wild thing”).

I made this cake for my daughter’s birthday. This was her favorite childhood book (she’s now 24!). 12×18 cake with buttercream frosting. I did this in a rush. I live on the east coast, she lives on the west coast and unexpectly had to fly home because of an ill grandmother, during her birthday month. It was just for family, so a bit sloppy.
