Fortnite Loot Llama cake

My son turned 10 a few days ago and one of the things I love to do for them is to make a special birthday cake. It’s most probably because I grew up pouring over the Australian Women’s Weekly Birthday Cake book.

Now there’s Pinterest!!! So many fantastic ideas!

So this birthday cake request was the Loot Llama from Fortnite! It’s a pretty popular game right now and it looked pretty simple. So here is my cake making effort for you to enjoy!

I hope you are inspired!

I baked the cake, which was a butter sponge cake – next time I’ll use something a little more dense.

I googled a picture of the loot llama.

I spent so time drawing it on paper. No photos of that though, they were pretty pathetic, I just needed to get dimensions right.

I cut out the shape.

Made a double batch of buttercream icing and the 3 colors I needed.

I made the eye and reins from fondant.

Then I iced the cake using a flat icing nib.

…et voila… a Fortnite Loot Llama birthday cake.

I forgot the saddle bag. But hey I as pretty happy with the outcome and so was my son. And that is what counts!

Life and blessings,

Mel
