Cooking with Anya: Alligator Cake


Here is another installment of "Cooking with Anya". As I have mentioned before, Anya LOVES The Princess and The Frog. In the movie, there is a jazz playing alligator named Louis. Anya wanted to make an alligator cake just like Louis.


She had a great time mixing the ingredients. She had decided she wanted a rainbow cake, so she mixed food coloring into the white cake batter. She even let her little brother help her!


Decorating was so much fun for her! She was so proud of her cake and I was proud of her! I see a future cake decorator!


Now for the reason you read these posts... In Anya's words........



I made this alligator cake all different colors on the inside and it had a lot of green frosting on it. I frosted it all by myself and I put a lot of candy on it. I put Whoppers on it because I love Whoppers. It looked like a real alligator. And it was very, very fun making it. I loved eating the head, too, and I loved the Whoppers for the eyes.

My brother decorated a cake, but he just ate it. It was just the right size and I very loved it. Everyone should read this and everyone should make it. It was fun and delicious. Make it. Just follow the recipe. This is my story. And this is the end, of course.

Alligator Cake

1 10" baked Bundt cake

3-4 cups frosting, dyed green

Candy, for decorating

Cut bundt cake into 3 equal pieces. Slice one piece in half at a 45 degree angle. Arrange cake on tray to create a curvy alligator body. Use one of the angled pieces for the tail. Slice the other angled piece into 4 feet.

Frost and decorate cake as desired.

What a cute cake! I love the alligator cake, and I would never have guessed (without the process pictures) that it was made from a bundt cake. I really want to try this out. Great job, Anya!

What a great idea to use a bundt pan to make a snake/alligator shaped cake! Love all the colors.
And awesome job, Anya. I love her write up, too. GREAT, great! My boys would totally go for this one!

Great job Anya (& Eric)! I was wondering how you guys were going to make a bundt cake into an alligator. Anya I've a visual learner. I think I need step by step guidance! :)
