Po Cake

My daughter wanted a Kung Fu Panda cake for her birthday and my hubby came up with this design.  It was easy and cute. So in honor of Kung Fu Panda 2 here is the Po cake.

You’ll Need

cake mix

2 blue Jelly Belly Jelly Beans

Pull n Peel Licorice

Black sprinkles or icing.

Divide your cake mix into 2 round cake pans + 2 cupcakes.  Bake according to package directions.


After the cake has cooled stack your cakes on top of each other and ice with white icing. Using black sprinkles or black icing shape eyes and nose.  We used a homemade stencil to make the eyes and nose and then sprinkled the sprinkles nice and thick. This worked awesome, but when we took the stencil off some of the extra sprinkles that were on the stencil fell through the eye and nose holes and got on the white parts of the cake. Then add your blue Jelly Belly jelly beans for eyes, and the licorice for the mouth.  For the ears ice your cupcakes with chocolate icing and sprinkle with black sprinkles or just ice with black icing. Enjoy!
