Zombie Cake

I made this zombie cake as a display for the Portland Women’s Show this weekend and I’m extremely happy with the outcome. It’s so fun to just work on something that is your own vision. I hope I get some more zombie orders because I think this is the most fun I ever had making a cake to date.

The “cake” is for display so it’s actually made from Rice Krispy Treats (RKT). The skin is modeling chocolate and the eye and shirt is fondant. I made the eye by painting it with food coloring.

The brain is made from a jell-o mold I got from the Halloween Store. It worked really well and turned out perfectly. I was nervous because I have never made a Jell-o brain before but it was super easy and tasted AMAZING let me tell you!

I textured the skin using a simple sculpting tool and then colored the skin with a combination of oil based food color and petal dust that is typically used to color sugar flowers.

I think this might be my favorite cake so far! I hope I get to do more zombie cakes because they are SUPER FUN!
