In honor of Halloween being right around the corner this weeks featured cake is a ......MONSTER!
This cake is perfect for not only the holiday, but made a great first birthday cake for a Monster themed party.
|First, rice krispies are rolled into balls, |
which later become the monsters eyes.
|Black circles are cut for the pupil of the eye.|
|White fondant is rolled out to cover the eye ball.|
|The pupil is attached....i see you :)|
|The base cake is covered in a bright electric blue.|
|Orange polka dots are added in various sizes.|
|Using an exacto knife, our decorator |
free hands a mouth and teeth.
|Using a smoother, the top tier is covered |
in a spooktacular lime green.
|Rolled out purple fondant is free hand|
cut into a "splat" formation.
|The "splat" is attached with a |
touch of water to the top tier.
|Once the cake is stacked and doweled the mouth is |
attached to the bottom tier with a touch of water.
|Using water the lower eyeball is attached|
to the top of the bottom tier.
|A lime green rope is attached between|
the tiers to finish the cake off.
|Eyelids are added to the top two eye balls.|
|A red piece of fondant is used to |
create a tongue on the top tier.
|Lastly, small green fondant hands|
are added between the two tiers.
|The finished product! If this doesn't get you into|
the Halloween spooky spirit I don't know what will!!
