How to make Muno cake from Yo Gabba Gabba...Try it, You'll Like It!

If there was one thing Olivia wanted for her birthday (besides a pink trumpet) it was a Muno cake. "Who's Muno?" you ask...Muno is the big, red, bumpy cyclops from the Nick Jr. show Yo Gabba Gabba.

I have to admit if there was a Yo Gabba Gabba cake to make - the Muno cake is probably the easiest. Thankfully she didn't want a Plex cake or DJ Lance Rock!

Here's how to make a Muno cake:

What you'll need:
  • 1 box cake
  • Red food coloring
  • 1 container of white icing
  • 1 package of oreo cookies
  • 1 plain large sugar cookie
  • Red gum drops
  1. Bake a box cake in a 9x13 dish. Make sure to put a lot of cooking spray in the bottom of the pan so you can easily remove the cake
  2. Let the cake cool completely. 
  3. Carefully remove the entire cake from the dish and flip or slide onto a jelly roll pan.
  4. Using a sharp knife, trim only the top corners off the cake. 
  5. Reserve about 2 tablespoons of white icing
  6. Mix the rest of the icing with red food coloring in the mixer
  7. Spread the entire cake with red icing
  8. Spread the reserved white icing on a sugar cookie and place the icing-side up on the cake as Muno's eye
  9. Twist the top off an Oreo and place it in the center of the sugar cookie as the 'eyeball.' 
  10. Place the red gum drops all over the cake being sure to leave enough room to make the mouth. 
  11. Separate about 10 Oreos and remove the cream.
  12. From two of the cookies, carefully scrape the cream out and cut into triangles to use as Muno's teeth. Set aside.
  13. Crush just the cookie part of the Oreos in the food processor. This will be used for Muno's mouth.
  14. Draw Muno's mouth (like a crescent moon) on a piece of paper. Cut out the insert. 
  15. Gently lay the piece of paper with the mouth cutout on the cake (the gum drops will hold it off the icing.
  16. Sprinkle the crushed cookie crumbs into the mouth cutout so the crumbs form the mouth shape on the cake.
  17. Remove the paper and add more gum drops in the area of needed.
  18. Place Muno's teeth over his cookie crumb mouth
  19. Try it, you'll like it!
