This Bride of Frankinstien cake was for a little girl's 3rd Birthday/Halloween Party. This was one of my first cakes like this. But after I was done with it I was really pleased with it. Everybody at the party could not stop talking about how good it looked.
I used loaf pans and baked 4 cakes. Stack two and two and then put them together. The frosting I made myself. My son has a toy tool bench so for the bolts on the side of her neck I used two of the new bolts out of the tool bench that he has. It made the cake look more real.
The first picture that I saw of this cake the hair is black and white striped, but in real life the bride's hair was only white up each side. For the checks you can use candy pieces or just use frosting, your choice.
I covered this Frankenstein cake with MMF over buttercream. It is made of three layers-bottom 8" round, middle 6" Angel food (filled with buttercream in center hole ), 8" round top layer-leave leveled. Ears, eyes, and nose shape are fondant.
For the nose I made a base out of fondant, but left a top 'hinge' to slide between layers for 'hanging' off the front of the face before adding top layer of fondant. Cover with buttercream, add a large 15" round circle of fondant, smoothing over head and nose mold. Slice slits for eyes, slowly spread the slit apart rolling edges inward, leaving a hole for eyes. Add buttercream to hole, insert eyes.
Ears are attached using water to moisten fondant. Hair/eyebrows are made from dried out MMF. I ripped strips for brows, rolled out the rest keeping edges jagged. Paint red on scars/eye balls with watered down food coloring.
I made this Frankenstein Cake for my sister in-laws Halloween party, everyone enjoyed it very much. I started with stacking four round chocolate cakes. Then I did a crumb coat on all four layers. Cooled cake in fridge. Then I iced them green, except the top portion of the head. Used chocolate writing pen to put stitches on Frankenstein's face. Used facial pieces (eyes, nose, mouth) as well as bolts in neck, from a pumpkin kit purchased from dollar store.
For the hair, I used black sugar bought from cake store, and used spooky rings placed in Oreo crumbs to decorate cake board. If you're going to do this design, I recommend using five or six layers for a larger face surface. Hope you enjoy making this cake.
This bride of Frankenstein cake was made for my son's DayCare Halloween Party. I used a full slab of cake, 17x23 (just removed the middle to show as if therr was 2 different characters).
I've seen many a bride of Frankenstein but not too many Frankenstein himself done in a cake. So I improvised on that one.
The kids and parents just loved it. This was my little contribution for my son's Day Care benefit. After all they are taking care of our kids to give us a chance to work. So really they raise our kids so this was just a little something they deserved.
I hope you do like it cause I am really proud of this one.
