Make this seri­ously adorable baby seal cake in no time flat. It’s a fun dessert to serve at an Arc­tic explorers–themed birth­day party or for any ani­mal lover! (P.S., No seals were harmed in the mak­ing of this cake.)


How To Make A Seal Cake

What You Need

  • A baked and cooled sin­gle layer cake
  • 2 cups of vanilla but­ter­cream or 1 can of frosting
  • 2 cups of finely shred­ded white coconut
  • An off­set metal spat­ula or knife
  • A 4-inch ball of black fondant

How To Make A Seal Cake

Step 1
Place your baked and cooled cake on a cake board or cake plate. I used a sin­gle layer cake and lev­eled the top with a ser­rated knife. Though, leav­ing the rounded dome top on the baked cake would also make a nice seal face!

Step 2
Cover the entire cake with a thick layer of creamy frosting.

Step 3
Using clean hands, scoop up the shred­ded coconut and place it right on top of the frost­ing, lightly pat­ting it in to adhere. Cover the entire top and sides of your cake with shred­ded coconut. Tap away the excess coconut.

Step 4
Using the black fon­dant, make two black round ball eyes by rolling the fon­dant between your palms. Use a touch of corn­starch to avoid stick­i­ness. Make a round oval shape for the nose and long skinny snake-like pieces for the whiskers. (You can also use black Jujubes and shoe­string licorice instead!)

Serve this cute and sim­ple seal cake with Swedish Fish can­dies and tuna nigiri sushi! What other treats would you serve dur­ing an Arc­tic explor­ers party? Maybe lit­tle bowls of sauer­kraut and lemon slices to stave off scurvy! A funny idea but the kids might pre­fer candy.

Happy dec­o­rating!
