For my three year old, we did make cupcakes, but they were in ice-cream cones, so we had no problem gobbling those right up! My husband requested an apple pie, super easy and gone that evening! when my son asked for a Pacman cake I kept looking around Pinterest for ideas. Some were elaborate, some simple. I chose to stick with the latter!
All I did for the above cake was take a sugar cookie recipe and cooked it as a large cookie, on a pizza pan. I doubled the cook time, and it turned out perfect! Then, I found a simple butter cream frosting recipe, added yellow food coloring and voila!
The eyes and large game piece are fruit roll ups and the "points" are lemonheads I picked up from the dollar store. Nothing to it and the kids loved it. Warning: it is dense and very sugary. Other than that it certainly can pass as a Pacman cake. The cookie concept seems to go over well in this house, more so than your typical birthday cake! A Pacman cookie cake. Simple and cute.
