had fun making our halloween birthday cake this year. wanted to do something food-related and was inspired by a cake i saw on Pinterest a few months ago.
the bowl cake itself is red velvet cake, bowl exterior and gross body parts are all fondant. i used gum paste for the spoon so it would harden and keep its shape.
i attempted sugar glaze for the first time and poured it over the soup to make it look gooey and soupy…but it failed miserably. i think it was too thin, not sure. it barely even left a glossy look on top. i really shouldn’t make anything from scratch, i’m just not good at it.
my daughter ate a left over finger after the party but that was pretty much all that was left.
