If you’re looking for Call of Duty birthday cake ideas, I’ve got you covered. I’ve rounded up a collection of pretty cool COD cakes.
There are Warzone themed cakes as well as Black Ops themed cakes. So you’re sure to find a cake design based on your loved one’s favorite COD game.
A custom birthday cake is a great way to surprise a friend or family member for their birthday. Kids and adults are always happy to receive a birthday cake, especially one made with love.
Fondant vs. Frosting for Your Call of Duty Cake
When it comes to decorating your cake, you can choose either fondant or frosting. Fondant is often preferred by bakers because of its smooth and shiny appearance once it’s been dried. Also, you can create some pretty intricate designs using fondant.
For most people though, frosting is easier to work with. If you’re new to decorating cakes, frosting is a good choice. No matter which type of icing you use, your cake will still look amazing and taste delicious.
Cut Out Circular Parchment Paper for Your Cake Pan
To ensure that your cake doesn’t stick to the pan, cut out a circular piece of parchment paper and place it at the bottom of your cake pan. This will help to prevent your cake from sticking to the pan, and it’ll make cleaning up much easier as well.
To make circular parchment paper, simply take a piece of parchment paper on the bottom of your cake pan. Trace around the pan to create a circle, and cut out your parchment paper using scissors.
Applying the Icing to Your Call of Duty Cake
When applying icing to your Call of Duty cake, you’re going to want to use an icing spatula instead of just a butter knife. This will result in a more precise application, which is essential for getting that smooth finish.
While you’re shopping for cake supplies, make sure you pick up some piping bags too. Piping bags will help you get your frosting on the cake in long, even lines instead of just randomly dumping it all over.
Make Sure Your Oven Temperature is Correct
Use an oven thermometer to ensure that your oven is the proper temperate. This is because different ovens have different temperature variances.
Keeping your oven at the correct temperature is one of the best things you can do to yield an evenly baked cake.
Make Sure Your Cake Cools Completely in the Pan
Making sure your cake is completely cooled is a very important step. Resist the temptation to cut into or frost your cake until it has completely cooled.
When you move on to the next step too soon, you run the risk of tearing your cake, or your frosting melting on the cake, which will ruin its appearance.
Storing Leftover Call of Duty Cake
Once your cake is completely cool, most cakes can be stored under a cake cover at room temperature for up to 3 days. Alternatively, you can typically freeze a cake for up to 3 months.
I love using press and seal and aluminum foil for wrapping cakes that are going to the freezer. To thaw a frozen cake, simply remove it from the freezer and let it sit in the refrigerator for a day before serving.
Don’t Forget to Have Fun
Cake decorating is an art form, and like any art form, it should be enjoyable. Let your creativity flow and enjoy the process. The more fun you have, the better your cake will turn out.
Plus, if things don’t turn out the way you had hoped, remember that at the end of the day, your cake will taste delicious no matter how it looks.
Call of Duty fans will appreciate the creativity and attention to detail that went into the creation of their cake. I hope you were able to find some inspiration to help you create an awesome birthday cake.
