Happy Birthday, Spike! Cake is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Idea, Terrible instructions I'm a beginner. I don't have a lot of practice or expierence, but with proper instructions I can make it happen. I have already tried doing the 3D duck, and those instructions were clear and to the point. The instructions for this guy are very vague. Maybe it's silly to need more guidance (how much icing to tint in what colours, where to find stencil for spikes or make my own. remember to dip finger in cornstarch to smooth feet, ect - that kind of thing.) This tutorial/instructions are greatly lacking in description.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This cake is a lot of fun to make and share! I also made a matching smash cake with the mini pan! I made the spikes from candy melts and they turned out great! I was a little nervous on the delivery because it was shaking a lot but it all worked out!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for a friends grandson's third birthday. He had picked it out from your site. He loved it. I used the last few segments of the nordicware caterpillar pan for the tail instead of the marshmallows, spikes from candy melts and he looked soooo cute. His thumbs up when he saw it, was all I needed.
