Yo Gabba Gabba Cake!!

Hi Everybody!
So my daughter turned 3 on Monday (boo-hoo) :(  She LOOOVES Yo Gabba Gabba!  Since there is no Yo Gabba Gabba cartridge (I sure wish we could custom order carts that we needed!), I ordered some stuff online.  After looking at the logo, and the characters closely I saw that the logo was made out of shapes I had on the Cricut, and the characters were put together mainly from basic shapes.  Unfortunately I didn't figure this out until 2 days before her birthday which just wasn't enough time for me to cut out what I needed.  I was able to create the logo and letters for her cake though.  So now I present (enter drumroll here.............)


  • Mickey Font cart = Happy Birthday, and #3's
  • Plaintain Schoolbook = pow shape
  • Mini Monograms = cloud and cloud shadow (altered on my Gypsy)
  • For the pictures, I took some stickers and sandwiched a toothpick in between them. This way they were all double sided :o)

*I think I came pretty close, what do you guys think?  (Sorry for the fuzzy picure!)
I did wish I had one of the "funky" fonts, but this one did the job!

What'dya think??  My mom made the cake and all the frosting (it was dee-lisc-ious!!!!!!), so this was definitely a budget friendly cake :o) 

I had also ordered some reusable wall stickers, so we will be putting them up in her room.  These were only the main characters.  We have a ton of extra little characters and things to create a whole scene!

*And you can't forget the treat boxes!!!  DJ Lance rocks!!!

My daughter had a blast and is still talking about her Yo Gabba Gabba birthday party!!  (And I will still prob try cutting out the characters I created on my Gypsy.  I'll post those pictures on my FB wall soon!)  TFL!!!!
