    Lion Birthday Cake Design Sweet! How to make a lion birthday cake with chow-mein noodles. Easy, step-by-step recipe, diagrams and pictures By Karen Tack email print share related tags: birthday parties, Birthday_Parties--Recipes, Recipes comments (0) 31 Incredible Birthday Cake Designs Step-by-step recipes, designs and color pics of the easiest (and cutest) birthday cakes for boys and girls Serves 16 Ingredients: 1 (9-inch) round cake 1 can (16 oz) vanilla frosting Orange food coloring* 1 can (5 oz) crunchy chow-mein noodles 2 Junior Mints 1 small tube brown decorating icing 3 red Starburst or Jolly Rancher Fruit Chews 6 brown M&M;'s Minis 2 gummy peach-flavored rings [Note: there's no official name for this] What you'll need: A bread knife A resealable sandwich-size bag (Ziploc) A serving platter *If you can't find orange food coloring, use a mixture of red and yellow food coloring to achieve the right color. Trimming the cake: Place the cake on a clean work surface. Using the bread knife, trim a 1 by 5-inch long piece on an angle from opposite sides of the cake to create the lion's jawline (see picture). Discard scraps. For the frosting: Spoon 3 Tbsp of the untinted vanilla frosting into a resealable plastic bag. Add the food coloring to the remaining frosting to tint it orange. Assembling the cake: Place the cake on a serving platter. Spread the cake evenly with the orange frosting. Poke the chow-mein noodles into the sides of the cake for the mane; insert more chow-mein noodles into a widow's-peak shape into the top 2 inches of the cake to create the lion's forehead. For the face: Snip a small corner from the bag of untinted vanilla frosting. Pipe two 1 ½-inch circles for the lion's eyes. Place the Junior Mints onto the circles for the irises. Pipe a small dab of vanilla frosting on each Junior Mint to add sparkle to the eyes. Place a chow-mein noodle above each eye for the lion's eyebrows. Using the brown decorating icing, pipe a W shape for the lion's mouth, as pictured. Microwave the red Starburst for 2 to 3 seconds to soften slightly. Knead the Starburst together to make a 1 ½-inch triangle and place it in the center of the cake for the nose. Add the M&M;'s Minis for freckles. To finish, lay the gummy peach rings on the upper left and right corners of the cake for the lion's ears.
