Crayon Birthday Cake

Man, I've been so busy with projects, I haven't had time to put them on here!! I need to finish up what I did with my son's birthday, and then I'll start showing my other schtuff.

Here's the crayon birthday cake I made for my little budding artist. This was a fun and simple cake to do. Gotta love those!

You done a great job. Think I might do this for my daughter's 5th birthday.

What size cake pan and how many boxes of cake did you use for the crayon cake? Also, did you make it a double layerd cake? Thanks.

Thanks for your questions...this was only cake mix in a 9x13 cake pan. I froze it, cut it in half, and layered it. Then I cut one tip of the cake and did a crumb coating, then layered with second frosting layer - so simple!

How tall is this? What kind of frosting/icing did you use? It looks so smooth but not fondant type smooth.

My son is about to turn 4 and has requested a crayon birthday cake. This looks like a possibility. Thanks!

I'm not quite sure how tall it is. Maybe 5-6 inches? I might have made my own buttercream, but for this cake I think it would be okay even just to use frosting from the can if that's your thing. I don't typically like to use that, but these decorations are very simple and don't require a lot of height.
