Invader Zim Specialty Cake – Gir

I get a lot of calls for specialty cakes but not so many of husbands requesting one-on-one cake classes for their wife’s birthday! When I found out she wanted to make a cake of Gir from the awesome cartoon “Invader Zim”  (a show based off a not so talented alien “Zim” trying to invade our planet earth with is trusty but not so smart companion “Gir“) I was totally on board! Invader Zim is one of my favorite cartoons and Gir pretty much makes the show. Gir is Zim’s “pet” robot that is disguised as a dog. The dog outfit is so cute!

He loves cupcakes!

She brought a great reference toy of Gir so it was easy to construct our plan of attack. Carve body and head, add taquitos, tacos and piggy…

Paula took to carving cake like an alien eating waffles…well you know what I mean

Time to put the fondant on! Paula was nervous about doing this right but she did it like a pro!

Adding all the doo-dads like zippers and stitches and such really bring the cake to life! Look at that precise stitching! I’m starting to suspect Paula is not as inexperienced as she claims, maybe she was sent to invade my kitchen!!! DUN DUN DUUUUN! ok, maybe she’s just uber talented

The finished Gir in all his taco glory!

The little piggy just cracks me up!

This pic is from Paula’s blog Off the Wall Cooking where they performed a frontal lobotomy on Gir in the name of birthday cake. A noble cause for any delicious cake.

Yes that is a strip of red velvet in the middle of white cake. Looks AWESOME!

You did a fantastic job Paula and you are definitely welcome back in my kitchen any day! Especially if we can make an Invader Zim cake next haha!
