Help! I need to decorate a birthday cake Gangnam Style. Do you have any suggestions?

Asked by jonsblond (37678 points ) January 19th, 2013

I have white frosting, food coloring, decorating tips, air heads and colored sprinkles in primary colors. This is for a girl who is turning 9.

Where do I start?

You put it on the floor, and then you start prancing around on it like a horse.

Practice doing a simple cartoon sketch of Psy in one of his famous dancing poses. Then do it after on top of the cake? Here is a link.

Sunglasses, horses (on each side), a yellow car, an explosion…
judging from the parodies of the video those are the major visual motifs.

Oh goodness, I wouldn’t even know where to begin on this one. I wish you much luck!

Maybe include the number “135” some place, it is the post code of the exclusive Gangnam area.

Maybe something like this face shot. (not sure what’s going on in the pink part there) : /
I’d make it a double layer cake and use real MIB shades if you have them.

@jonsblond Post a pic after you’ve made it.
@Ela Great example!

I was going to say something scathing & pisstaking, but it’s for a 9yr old girl, so instead i’ll just wish you good luck, hope she likes it :-)

Have two cakes. One will be decorated, for show, and the other, without decorations, to serve, because obviously the first cake will have no taste.

I would do something with a horse (or horses) and maybe a separate pair of sunglasses, since Psy wears sunglasses in the video. It’s a tough thing to do, because Gangnam Style is more a concept, and the song/video is Psy dancing with horses and girls, neither of which would be easy to recreate on a cake.

You could also forget about visual images, and just write on the cake “Gangnam Style” and put some musical notes on it.

Sunglasses on the cake, the name on it too, then either a pc with the youtube video or another recording of the song behind the cake.

I really hope you come back and post a photo.

Thanks everyone. Great ideas!

She decided to help decorate the cake. We were in a hurry but I think it turned out cute. She drew Psy and wrote Gangnam Style. Here it is.

Tonight’s party was just family. Her party with her friends will be in a week or two. We might make cupcakes and I’ll let her draw Psy’s face on each. We have more time to plan for that day.

Haha! That is awesome.

Love it!

That’s a great cake! Congratulations to both of you. And Happy Birthday to Emily.
