plants vs. zombies cake

fallen zombies, potato spuds, cherry bombs…

yup, here’s another cake.  i’m in a cake phase for sure.

i helped my sister with my nephew’s birthday cake and since he was having a party at the botanical gardens up in new york, we thought a garden box would be cute and the kids could dig their piece out with their own trowel.

but once we started planning out the colors and rolling out fondant, my sister proceeds to tell me she had a dream the night before about plants vs. zombies.  what? what’s that? i had NO idea.  it’s a game on the ipad that not only is my sister addicted to, so is my nephew.  so i said it was a sign and that we should definitely make a plants vs. zombies cake.  and we did.  it was a blast!

my sister’s corn catapult & pea shooters, so spot on!

post-party souvenir…i think it’s still stuck on a chopstick in my sister’s kitchen

materials:

box cake mix

store-bought cake icing with green food coloring for the grass

crushed oreo cookies for the dirt

50/50 store-bought fondant & gum paste for the figures, mixed with color gels, all bought in the cake section of michaels
