Severed Medusa Head!

Posted by jenmeeko at 6:54 PM 0 comments



What better way to celebrate a 10-year-old boy's birthday than a severed head covered in snakes!? This was a really fun and interesting cake to make. Four chocolate cakes and chocolate buttercream carved and covered in fondant and then embossed and airbrushed to look like scaly Medusa. 15 airbrushed gummy snakes with beady redhot eyes made up her hair. Her eyes had lights inside so they glowed green in the dark. Way cool. The kids seemed to be impressed. One even said, "Wow, you're good. You should sell this cake for a million dollars!" Pretty nice compliment. :-)

Leftover pineapple cake means...mini cupcakes! These were topped with cream cheese frosting. Really cute and yummy.

A Surgical Pineapple Cake

My friend Aleiva asked me to make a cake for her sister Leah, who was graduating as a surgical nurse. This cake incorporates scrubs, a surgical mask, and a tray full of medical instruments. Everything is made of fondant, and the cake was a new one for me: pineapple with cream cheese icing. The pineapple cake was totally awesome! I'll definitely be additing to my list of regular flavors.

Decided to make some cupcakes for fun today. Orange cupcakes with marshmallow-butter filling, orange buttercream and marshmallow drizzle. These looks delish and smell just like an orange creamsicle!
