If your child loves Scooby Doo and you want to surprise him on his birthday, make him a cake with a Scooby Doo theme. Scooby Doo movies have several signature characters, so dress your cake with figurines of them. Place them around the frosting if you wish. Other decorations could echo the "scary" elements of Scooby Doo. Think of haunted houses, ghosts, dead trees and other spooky items.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

  1. 1

    Purchase Scooby Doo figurines to place on the cake. You can find these items at most discount stores or grocery stores.

  2. 2

    Make spooky trees for the cake out of black liquorice Twizzlers. Using a knife, cut the tops off the Twizzlers and peel a few of the strands down to create branches. Make four to six trees and make the branches of varying length. Attach them to the cake using mini skewers or toothpicks.

  3. 3

    Make ghosts for the cake using Fruit Roll-ups. Unroll the snack and cut out a small 3-by-3-inch square. Take the rest and roll it into a ball. Place the ball on the cake and then place the square on top. Let the sides fall over the ball to create a ghost. Use chocolate frosting to make eyes for the ghost and then, using toothpicks, tuck the ghost behind the trees.

  4. 4

    Add the Scooby Doo figurines to the cake. You can also print off pictures of the movie using your printer and edible photo paper and attach this to the cake.

  5. 5

    Make headstones from white chocolate-covered cookies and place candy corn pumpkins around the cake. Add candles.
