Cake by Nancy N., Morro Bay, CA

My three year old daughter was in the musical "Nightmare before Xmas" and fell in love with all the characters especially Oogie-Boogie and wanted an Oogie Boogie cake for her birthday.

I looked at a picture of Oogie Boogie on the internet and cut it out to fit the cookie sheet I used. Then I made one chocolate box cake and baked it in a big cookie sheet. Froze the cake for a couple hours and then put the paper I cut out on top of the cake and cut the shape. I made green frosting and got gummy worms to go on it. At the bottom I dug a slight trench so the worms looked like they were coming out of the character.

This was only to be shown privately but everyone that came to the party thought I purchased it at some bakery and wondered which bakery I got it from. I didn’t have very good black tube outline frosting. A softer one would come out better.
