Monster Cake

Monster Cake

A fun and not-too-spooky Monster Cake decorating idea!

I was going through old pictures, and came across this monster cake I made for our baby’s first birthday last year.  The theme was loosely, Our Little Monster.  I had seen a monster face like this on the internet, and just knew it would make the cutest cake!  This is great cake for a Halloween party… it’s spooky, but not scary!

I don’t really have any instruction on how to make the monster face, I really just winged it. But it’s pretty easy to recreate.  So even though I don’t have a tutorial for you, I wanted to share the ingredients I used to put it together.

What you need to make a Monster Cake:

  • 1, 2-layer cake in the flavour of your choice
  • 2 containers of white icing:
    • 1 tub of icing should be tinted with green food colouring for the icing base.
    • Use part of the other tub for the white of the eyeball and tooth.
    • Use and use part of the second tub to tint a darker green for the warts
  • Black gel icing (I bought mine at Walmart) for the eyeball centre and mouth.
  • Black licorice strings for the hair.

    That has got to be one of the cutest cakes I’ve ever seen. I’m definitely showing it to my teenage daughter – she’ll most likely make one next week.

    Cute skeleton font. 🙂
