Bigfoot Bundt Cake

I've been wanting to try a Bigfoot bundt cake ever since I got the cookie cutter.  I actually got the cutter just for this project.  HERE is a link to the recipe and instructions, although I didn't use their recipe.  I just skimmed the instructions, got the gist, and winged it.  

Mistake #1 was the size of the cutter. It was too tall for the bundt pan.  
Mistake #2 was that I didn't want to make chocolate cake.  I made brownies instead.  I was only able to get 6 Sasquatches from the pan.


Placing them in the pan was a bit of a pain, to keep them from tipping over as you added the cake batter.  I even put batter in the bottom and stuck their heads in and they still wanted to fall over. 

Sadly, all the legs melted and broke off within minutes of going in the oven.  That's probably why I should've used cake instead of brownies.

Well at least it flipped out easily.

The icing is just confectioners sugar mixed with milk and vanilla extract.

First slice, total failure.  Delicious, but a failure.

But then....TA DA!  I finally got a slice with the design, even if the legs were gone.

This is another one that I'm glad I tried, but won't be revisiting.  Bigfoot will be in cookie form from now on, and bundt cake will be bundt cake, and never the twain shall meet.

  1. You really like Bigfoot don't you JoJo? At least the cake kind of worked. I avoid stuff like that as I would eat more than I should and Matt isn't really interested.

    1. Thanks Karen!!!!! It was definitely delicious! But I doubt I'll do it again. I'd need to buy a smaller cookie cutter.

  4. Hey JoJo,

    Bigfoot bundt cake, despite any mishaps, looks enormously yummy. I must make some Sasquatch shortbread, eh! LOL

  9. Even if it didn't turn out the way you thought it would - it was still a worthwhile try. Now you know. I could go for a piece of that.
