Monster Cake!



Happy Halloween everyone! We're taking our boys trick or treating with some friends this afternoon, so I made this silly monster cake to share.

This orange creature, which our kids for some reason named "Bobby," is a chocolate cake, filled with raspberry mousse and chocolate buttercream. To get that hairy effect, I piped orange colored buttercream with a Wilton tip #233. You start from the bottom of the cake and move on up to make sure the "hair" overlaps downwards. It's a pretty messy job! The eyes are cake pops made from leftover vanilla cake crumbs mixed with cream cheese, that I covered in fondant. The mouth is also made from fondant.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go figure out how to get some giant bunny ears to stay on my son's head!
