How Do you Make an Easy Paw Patrol Cake?
This Paw Patrol Cake is made with a cake mix. That’s right. Boxed Cake mixes. If you want to bake 2 – 9 Inch cakes from scratch, you can opt to use your own favorite recipe. We simply love using the boxed cake mixes because it simplifies the process and they still taste delicious.
In fact, we also opt to use premade store-bought frosting. Again, if you wanted to create your own recipe, that is fine but we love the simplicity and convenience the premade stuff offers, without compromising flavor.
Making this cake is easy, but it looks like you spent hours in the kitchen.

Paw Patrol Cake Recipe
Making a Paw Patrol Cake isn’t overly complicated. However, the results appear as though you spent a vast amount of time baking, creating and decorating.
To make this Kit Kat Cake, you simply need to bake the cake mixes as per the instructions on the box. Once you have baked and cooled the cake you frost it with the store-bought icing and place your kit kat bars surrounding the sides of the cake. Make sure that there is enough icing in each Kit Kat sections to hold them on.
Tie the Kit Kats off with a ribbon, decorate with the smarties and the topper, and voila! A beautiful cake perfect for your celebration.
Bake your two 9-inch round cakes. Make sure to follow the instructions on the box. Once Baked, allow your cakes to cool prior to icing them. Icing a warm cake causes the icing to melt. This will cause a mess and ruin the next step.
Place wax paper strips around the edges of the bottom tier of the cake. This helps to minimize mess after icing.
Place one layer of your cooled cake on your cake board and apply the frosting to the top layer of the cake only.
Once you have iced the first layer, place the other layer on top of it. Ice the second layer, followed by liberally icing the entire cake, sides included. You will want the top to have a generous layer of icing allowing the smarties to stick.
This is the fun part. Break the KitKats in half lengwise. Ensure that each piece of cake will have 2 KitKat sticks. Carefully place your KitKats around the sides of the cake, pressing gently into the icing. Leave an opening along the side of the cake that is about 2 KitKats wide.
Tie a ribbon around the cake to hold the KitKats in place. Now add extra frosting to the open spot, creating a base for the smarties rocks to stick to. This will create the “spill” for Rubble.
Cover the top of the cake with smarties, making sure to place smarties down the opening to make it look like a spill. You want them to create the illusion of them being pushed around by Rubble in his machine.
You can also create a topper with your child’s name or add fondant figures if you want to make it more creative and amusing. Bear in mind that custom cakes have exciting ideas that can make it much memorable to your kids birthday party. A themed birthday cake like this Paw Patrol cake is great for bigger or smaller party events. Have some loot bags with toy characters and sweet treats inside as party favors and kids will definitely remember the celebration for the rest of their lives.
This cake is sure to please everyone that gathers around your table. Whether you are serving it for a birthday party, a graduation or even just because you were craving cake, it is sure to be a hit.
