For Halloween, my work has a chili cookoff contest for lunch and invites everyone to contribute either for the contest or a side dish for the lunch. I love cakes, so this Homemade Monster Cake is what I decided to make.
I baked 4 round cakes (2 cake mix boxes) and stacked and iced them 2 nights before the party and then put the whole pile into the fridge. The night before the party I took it out and “gouged” eye sockets out of the cake, using part of what I removed from the eyes to form the nose. Then came green fondant rolled around the sides and black-brown fondant rolled in a circle placed on top for hair. My daughter helped me to roll white and black fondant into eyes and then she helped me to decide on where to put the scars and how to create the rest of the details.
I got the idea for the cupcakes in a cupcake book but decided to add the UFO. I made 24 full size cupcakes for my son's class and 12 mini cupcakes and the UFO for our family.
I used an assortment of candy, licorice, marshmallows and buttercream icing to decorate the cupcakes. I've made a few cakes and I found the cupcakes a nice change. For anyone not experienced in piping using candy as the main decoration allows any one to make them. I experimented with a couple of different piping tips to make hair/fur.
For the UFO I used a 9-inch cake pan and two mini ball cakes - one for the top of UFO and one underneath to prop up the UFO. As with the cupcakes I used candy and licorice to decorate.
We used two simple vanilla cakes (one large and one smaller) for this Alien and Space ship cake. We used the small cake for the space ship and the large cake for the small cake to sit on and to write on. We used homemade cream cheese icing that we just food colored.
Also, we used marshmallows and M&M's as the lights on the space ship. Lastly, we used a store bought writing icing for the writing on the cake and to make the alien.
One more tip- if you refrigerate the cakes then put on homemade icing, be careful because it will start to melt and it could become very messy as you can kind of see in the picture. Thanks for looking! :)
This is a Homemade Monster Birthday Cake for my daughter's friend. I used one cake mix and cooked it in a 9x13 pan. I let it cool for 20 minutes then I cut the cake in half and placed one on top of the other. I rolled out a thin piece of fondant and cut it to look like teeth. I placed the fondant on the bottom and edge of the cake.
Then with the white icing I frosted the sides of the cake. With chocolate icing I frosted the top and back of the cake. I placed gummy eyeballs and a gummy snake for the book marker in the cake. The mouth is billy bob teeth.
