My kids are HUGE Phineas and Ferb fans. Okay, its not just the kids. We love a funny show that is squeaky clean we can enjoy as a family. For her birthday, one of our daughter's requested a Perry the Platypus cake. This required a little creativity as there isn't an already made cake pan for that!
Also, as we decided for some reason to have the kids' party the same day as the family party we'd be eating this cake at, it had to be easy!
Large handful of orange starbursts (or other pliable candy)
2 Large Marshmallows
2 Hershey Kisses
Toaster Waffle (such as Eggo)
Your favorite Cake Mix
If you look at the image, we decided to bake a plain 9x12 sheet as a base to feed more people. Perry's body is a loaf pan. I also used leftover batter to bake a small cake which was cut into his legs attached at the side.
Toast the waffle, and attach the tail with toothpicks. The eyes are made with the "pointy" end of the kisses inserted into the marshmallow. To make the feet, unwrap the starburst and microwave them a few seconds until they are pliable. Then shape into feet or beak. Not the most aesthetic of cakes we've made but our little girl was thrilled!
