yippee…it’s halloween season again! our favorite time of year.
had fun making a halloween birthday cake again this year for our dear friend- a decomposing head cake!
a few weeks ago i purchased the wilton 3-D skull cake mold from amazon.com. i saw this online and got excited with ideas of making gory skull cakes for the kids. of course, it just sat on my kitchen counter while i suddenly felt uninspired to bake anything.
then i finally came up with the idea to decorate a skull cake into a decomposing head for the birthday cake. this was by far my most favorite of cakes. it was fun to make.
i used red velvet cake mix, covered the face and rat in fondant. then used gum paste for the flies and worms, both painted with luster dust. for blood, i used red decorating icing. yum!
