Homemade Monster Book of Monsters Birthday Cake

I made this Monster Book of Monsters Birthday Cake for our son's birthday. The eyes, gums and lettering on top were made from chocolate (CK Sculpting Candy Kote). It comes in a small tube, so it's easy to control. I have a small disk mold I used for the eyes. I put down the black diamond pupils, put the mold in the freezer for a few minutes and then filled it up with yellow.

The gums were made by laying a piece of foil over a few pencils, putting down some red Candy Kote and freezing it. I then put icing teeth down in the grooves.

I downloaded a Harry P font, printed out Happy 16th Nick, laid wax paper over the letters and filled then in with Candy Kote. My husband drew the letters for the top of the cake by looking at the movie and I did the same for them.

The pages were made using a wide Wilton basketweave 789 tip.

The "fur" was made using a Wilton grass tip (#234). I make professional decorator's icing, adding more powdered sugar when I need it thick. The ingredients are available from most cake decorating shops, and the kids love it! (1-1/2 cups PS99; 1/2 c. Brite White; 2 T meringue powder; dash of salt; 2 t creme bouquet; 2 t butter vanilla emulsion and 4-8 T water...and any Wilton colors). Beat on low/med for 5-7 minutes.

Homemade Monster Book Of Monsters Birthday Cake

My husband and I made this Monster Book Of Monsters Birthday Cake for our 1 and 2 year old son's birthday. They love Harry Potter. We got the idea while watching our nightly dose of Harry before bed time.

The cake is half devils food and half yellow cake with chocolate cream and fresh strawberries in the center. We whipped canned icing for the hair look and dragged it on with a brush to make it look like hair. The eyes are store bought candy eyes and the teeth are hand made from melting candy.

We wanted this cake to not only look good but also taste good. I know we cheated using a boxed cake mix but we did add the cream and strawberries in the center. The cake Boss, gave us that idea. We made this cake for our sons after searching for a bakery that could make us one and we had no luck in finding one.

As a family we love everything Harry Potter and this cake thrilled our two young sons. My 14 year old daughter even enjoyed it. Hope you enjoy!

For my son's 7th birthday, I made this cake too, inspired by the photos I saw online of other cakes...changed it up a little bit. I originally wanted to add the belt buckle to keep it shut, but ran out of time.

Coolest Monster Book of Monsters Cake (Harry Potter) 14

Homemade Monster Book of Monsters Cake (Harry Potter)

Here is my version of the Monster Book of Monsters Cake (Harry Potter) in edible form. It was created for a little girl turning 8 who loves Harry Potter. She is having an awesome Harry Potter themed party with wizard wands, potions, chocolate frogs and all.

The cake it a red velvet quarter sheet cake decorated in gumpaste and vanilla buttercream. All the gumpaste decorations are hand made, cut, molded and painted. The hand painting is done with vodka and food coloring, and the fur was done with the the Wilton's grass tip. I was very pleased with the final outcome and had a ton of fun making it.

The whole cake is 100% edible, teeth and all. It took about 8 hrs total to complete it and attach all it's parts. It is deliciously creepy and just the right touch for the party. It was hard to part with because it is my favorite cake I've made so far. Hope you enjoy viewing it.

Homemade Chica Chica Boom Boom Cake

My son is crazy about Chica Chica Boom Boom, the book, so he had a birthday party around this theme. We had homemade Chica Chica Boom Boom Cake and pinata. The preparation was as fun as the party, he was so excited!

I used a plain yellow cake, with chocolate filling, and royal icing with a little bit of red coloring (confectioner sugar, egg white and lemon juice). The details on the top are made with almond paste (marzipan).

If you need more details feel free to ask.

I am totally going to do this for my 2 year old.. I was rudely (but innocently) awakened VERY early one dark dark morning with a slam to the head by my 15 month old. Luckily I can recite it by heart now and didn't have to get out of bed to turn on the lights or even open my eyes or the book.. I just started reciting and he just sat there politely until I finished and then curled up with us and went back to sleep.. I love it.. I love it.. I love him even more, but I love this idea! Thanks!

Love it
