Wiggles cake submitted by Diana B. from Bramwell WV
This is a 3 layer cake. I used Duncan Hines Cake mix.
Baked as directed on box, then I used homemade buttercream icing. This is 1 cup butter and 1 cup Crisco and 2 tablespoons of vanilla flavoring. After torting these I iced them with the buttercream and stacked all together.
The car on top is 2-9 inch pans baked and carved into a car. I also had to carve a square out of the middle for the fondant seats to go in
I just cut the Wiggles characters out of the party hats and placed them in the car. I made homemade fondant which is 1 bag miniature marshmallows, Crisco and confectioners' sugar.
Grease the bowl all over the inside then put in marshmallows and 3 tablespoons of water and put in microwave for 1 min. Stir this completely and start adding the sugar and keep stirring until the mixture gets stiff. Then grease your hands and start kneading the fondant as if kneading bread.
Then I used cookie cutters to cut out the name and put it on the cake. Have fun and enjoy!

I used 2 cake mixes: a vanilla (to which I added 1/2 tsp. of almond flavoring) and a strawberry one. I filled a Wilton race car pan with the vanilla. Finished filling with some of the strawberry, then used a knife to cut it in.
I baked per the instructions on the cake pan. After cooling, I cut the top out of the car to make it a convertible. I made a buttercream frosting and used red food coloring on about 3/4 of it.
Using a star decorator tip, I went over the cake using a Wiggles car toy as my guide. I colored the rest of the frosting yellow for the convertible top, and used a loop tip.
I downloaded the Wiggles logos from the internet. Printed "The Big Red Car" and 4 circles using the Print Shop.
I colored the circles with markers in the hub cap colors. Then used some frosting to attach them to the chocolate side of duplex cremes, and put them in place for the wheels.
I unscrewed the guys from the toy car I used as a pattern, and sat them in the cake!

For this Wiggles Big Red Car cake, I hired an ordinary car shaped cake tin from my local cake decorating supplies shop.
I lined the tin with baking paper, and poured in the butter cake mix (supermarket brought). I made sure it was spread to all the little parts of the car (like headlights, etc).
Once baked, I let the cake cool on a wire rack, and cut off the roof to make it a convertible like the Big Red Car.
I used butter icing, which is easy to make. You need butter, icing sugar and a little milk helps to get the consistency right.
Then add your colors as you need them. That way you don't end up with too much of one color. For this cake you need red, blue, yellow, purple and white.
It's easier to do all the red parts of the car first, then the yellow and leave the wheels and lights 'til last.
For the wheels, I used chocolate delta creams and iced them with the 4 Wiggles colors. Then stuck them on to the body of the car. You could use licorice, if you want to.
Once the cake is iced and the wheels are on, place Wiggles figurines into the car and add their friends around the cake board (Captain Feathersword, Dorothy, Wags and Henry).
It does help to have a model to work from. I brought a soft toy Big Red Car, and used it to get all the colors in the right spots on the car. (The Wiggles seats are colored too, to match their colors).
