Nothing better than having creative freedom to design and execute a Halloween spooktacular cake! Here at The Cake Boutique we LOVE minions and we LOVE Halloween so when given the chance to design a totally awesome Halloween cake we knew we had to combine our two loves! Check out how this cake came to be!
First 2 cakes are cut and filled. Once is rounded at the top.
The cakes are then "dirty iced" to seal in the crumbs.
Wooden supports are added to the bottom cake.
A little buttercream is added on the top of the bottom cake...
and the rounded cake is placed on top.
More wooden dowels are added for more support.
"Dirty ice" is added to smooth the two cake together.
Next the cake is covered in lime green fondant.
White fondant is rolled out and cut into a circle...
