Back to the cake…The entire cake is dairy free, soy free, egg free, and nut free (with the exception of the cake toppers). I did use wheat with this recipe (he’s able to eat it again) however last year I used Cherrybrook Kitchen Chocolate Cake Mix and it was fantastic! I would also recommend King Arthur Flour Gluten Free Cake Mix for another great mix that works really well even when taking out dairy, soy, and egg.

Do you all know Stampy and Squid from YouTube??? You know…Stampylongnose, Stampylonghead, and iBallisticSquid?? My son LOVES their videos and has even been known to talk with an English accent while playing Minecraft because of them! He’s also started making his own little videos. You can take a sneak peak of one of them here:
I knew that if I could make Stampy and Squid appear on his birthday cake that it would be the surprise of the year! I was able to order cake toppers through Etsy that were shaped just like Stampy, Squid, and Lfor Lee. Edna from FancyTopCupcake made the cake toppers and shipped them to my home for a reasonable price. She could not grantee that her products were safe for those with food allergies but we were NOT eating them. I used them strictly for presentation only.
And I put it all together to get this!
So did your face look similar to my son’s when you finally saw the finished cake???
Please say yes!!!
Also, feel free to take a look at the plans that I created to measure each item. It’s nothing fancy (especially with the paper fringe), but if you wanted to make the same cake design I’ve already done all of the math for you. Just take a look here and please let me know if you have any questions.
