Puzzle Cake
What's your Take?

This cake was designed for my 4-year-old cousin, Timmy. He is a puzzle freak and can do almost any puzzle. The first thing he said to me when he saw it was, "Can I put it together?"

What you'll need

  • One 13 x 9" cake pan
  • Canned frosting
  • 2 tubes of black gel
  • Coloring gels
  • Candy letters

How to make it

  1. I first made the cake according to directions and baked in a 13" x 9" cake pan. After the cake was cooled, I put it in the freezer to make it hard enough to work with

  2. Once cold enough, I very lightly scored the lines on the cake with a sharp knife and then cut out random pieces of the "puzzle."

  3. Again, I froze the cake and pieces. I took out the cake and frosted the largest piece with canned frosting and one by one I frosted the remaining pieces.

  4. I had to assemble a few of the puzzle pieces to apply the lettering. After the letters were all centered and in place, I randomly placed the pieces surrounding the cake to look like the puzzle was messed up.

  5. I then took the black gel and drew the outlines of the pieces on the larger "together" section. And once again, I froze the cake to hold everything in place so it wouldn't melt on the trip to the birthday party.
