Phineas and Ferb Cake

Posted by Jennifer at 6:35 PM
Never heard of Phineas and Ferb? Me neither! Turns out, it's a pretty popular show. Ian was turning 4 and his mom, Sarah, thought it would be good to have his favorite show in cake form. In fact, she wanted his favorite episode of his favorite show in cake form and so this was the outcome. In the episode, Phineas and Ferb build their own rollercoaster (pictured on the bottom tier) while Doofenschmirtz is being apprehended by Perry the Platypus (depicted on the top tier). At the end of the episode, Phineas and Ferb are about to be caught by their parents but luckily their rollercoaster car falls into the backyard tree leaving the two boys sitting innocently under the tree (on top of the cake).

Last year, I made a set of cupcakes for Ian's 3rd birthday (the Blues Clues Cupcakes) and so I was really excited to have them want me to make his 4th birthday dessert as well. The top tier is Cherry Pie Cake (cherry flavored cake with cherries baked layered with cherry filling and buttercream) and the bottom tier is Chunky Monkey Cake (chocolate cake layered with banana slices, banana cream filling, and rich, chocolate ganache). The cake is covered with marshmallow fondant and all of the decorations are handmade from MMF. The tree on the top is rice crispies mixed with puffed rice covered in MMF.

Do you have a recipe for the chunky monkey cake or is that your own private creations? It sounds delicious and I would like to give it a try.
