Squishy cake tutorial (UPDATE)

Let's see it's 3 a.m in the morning was just lying in bed thinking "I'm gonna make a squishy cake later today for my niece". Then all of a sudden like Gru says in "Despicable me" ..."Lightbulb"!

Why not  do a tutorial *shrugs* everybody I know this is a blog I do mostly for sims but hey I don't see anything wrong with doing a tutorial on squishy's here!


Whew finally finished,it does take awhile to finish these squishy's but they are worth it I say!


These are the Supplies that are needed
1. Sponge or foam (I recommend density foam cause my sponge is very thick)
 2. DAP Alex Plus Acrylic Latex Caulk Plus Silicone (Get the tube it's less messy)
3. Glitter (optional)
4. Utility knife
5. Toothpick (s)
6. Marker
7. Decorating cake tips (optional)
8. Acrylic paint (optional)
9. Fabric paint (Dimensional/3d)

If you decide to get density foam,after your finished cutting your slice you will have to paint it with Acrylic paint
your choice of color and that will take 1-3 hours to dry,You can also do that with your sponge if you don't like the color!

Also have some baby wipes/handwipes by your side (It could get messy)

These are optional as well you can decorate your cake with deco
 and little cookies which you can make with polymer clay like those I made myself up above... or not ...I'm
just doing a simple one today! :)

I'm also using Fabric paint for the drippings which you can get at your local craft store!
The other supplies you can get at craft stores but the caulk and knife you get at Hardware stores!

If you are a child have your parents/guardian help you with this as this
can be very dangerous !
If you are an Adult be careful and do it at your own risk!
Also I wouldn't recomend giving these to toddlers or babies,it could be
very Hazardous!


Draw a triangle on your sponge/foam with your marker

Then cut with utility knife

It doesn't have to be perfect : D
If you decide to get density foam,after your finished cutting your slice  you will have to paint it with Acrylic paint
your choice of color and that will take 1-3 hours to dry,You can also do that with your sponge if you don't like the color! Then you can do the next step! 

Take your fabric paint and make your drippings

I bite my nails...very bad habit I have lol!

Do the sides (Don't worry the fabric paint stays where you put it)
Wait 4 hours for the fabric paint to dry before you do the next step!!!

squeeze your icing (caulk) on top
You could use your cake tips to make a better design but I'm not using
them in this tutorial! : )

Take your toothpick and swirl the icing around to cover the top

repeat if you have to,to put on a thick layer

Make sure you do the back as well!

Sprinkle your glitter on top and
your done!
It takes bout 8- 12 hours for the caulk to dry!

I hope ya'll like my tutorial please leave a comment and if you want to ask me any
questions feel free to comment below and I'll do my best to answer them!
If ya'll ever make one tell me and show me I would love to see what ya'll
made,take care everybody!

I <3 my Puddin!

Actually I tried watching the ones on youtube but the girl sounds quiet and mumbling and for me, a little difficult to understand.
*watches this space!*

Amanda said...

Yay! ^_^

Well I'll be starting on it later today and posting it later today cause I just crawled out of bed and need to get my brain energized lol!

I just hope I don't screw up lol! :P

Yoteamo said...

*lurks patiently*

no pressure no pressure!
it's fine, take your time. I often find a Gin is good for the brain fuzz. My Nan tells me it's 'mother's ruin' in my case, more like 'mother's making'. lol

Yoteamo said...

Amanda said...

Yoteamo said...

Perfect thanks, you've made it seem so simple!
I just have a random question about the fabric paint as we dont have the brands in the UK that I've seen mentioned in tutorials - what kind of fabric paint is it? It looks kinda thick..
<3 <3

Amanda said...

Thank you! ^_^ <3


I've looked on all my fabric paint bottles and they say Slick Dimensional Fabric Paint.

I hope you can find what you need! <3 <3

Amanda said...

Also there is this popular brand called Scribbles,I don't know if ya'll get that in the UK? But I hear about it alot! :)

Yoteamo said...

Ahh thanks so it's 3d fabric paint I guess. Well I spent a small fortune on decoden for them today and waiting for the materials to arrive so I can get cracking. Great job by the way you made it look so simple. <3

Amanda said...

3d paint that is it!
Although mine say a bit different lol!

I'm glad you like the tutorial!Have fun and I can't wait to see your squishy cake!
