Pokemon Stadium Cake

Teen2 had a birthday party Saturday night for her peeps. I've always made the kids birthday cakes, so I asked her what kind of cake she wanted. She wanted a Pokemon cake. Dread and despair crossed my mind thinking I would have to make a round (Pokeball) cake, but she suggested the stadium scene, so {whew!} I stopped fretting.

First I covered a board with aluminum foil, set a 9x13 cake on it and cut the corners off. Then I mixed up some red, green and grey icing and made the Pokeball in the middle.
Then I did the green field around it.

Then I had a little trouble with the brown frosting. I bought ready made chocolate, but it had tiny chocolate chips in it, so it was difficult to spread. Darn those little lumps! But I eventually got all the little finishing touches on it...

and Teen2 placed her well loved (and well washed) figures around the arena.

And that's how you make a Pokemon Stadium cake....if you have a little kid who likes that sort of thing....or if you have a big kid who still likes that sort of thing.
