My four year old son is a HUGE Ghostbuster's fan to say the least! After hearing him sing the theme song over and over one day, I knew I had to make a Ghostbuster's cake for his 4th birthday.
I started out by making all the Ghostbuster's symbols for the cupcakes (see below). That took about 4 hours total for 13 symbols! They were all hand cut.
Next, I worked on Mr. Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. He is made out of Rice Krispie Treats and then covered in fondant. He was really quite funny when I was done with him!
Some of the building parts were made from RKT because I didn't want to overdue it with the cake. The only real trouble I had was with the GF chocolate cake. I used a box mix and it was very crumbly and didn't want to take the frosting. The homemade strawberry cake wasn't that way at all.
The cupcakes were a lot of fun. I made a marshmallow creme filling for the them and dyed it green to look like slime. They were super yummy too!
It was definitely a lot of work, but worth it to see the smile on my little guys face!!
