A couple of weeks ago I had a cake order for a two tiered cake with skulls & roses using purple, black & silver… and they wanted to use a large [very glittery] skull with eyes that lit up that they already had to top the cake. It sounded like an extremely fun cake, even more fun when I learned that the birthday girl was turning 50.
This is what I came up with:
I used a few different mediums on the cake.
The small skulls, roses and other embellishments are molded chocolate.
The large roses I made from gum paste, which is similar to fondant just dries harder.
And of course the cake is covered in fondant and airbrushes with black accents.
