I made this Pharaoh cake for some graduates of a local high school. The head was made from 3 layers of strawberry 11×15 sheet cakes, layered with strawberry icing. I cut the outer shape of the headdress and then cut and sculpted the face out of the uppermost layer of cake.
I then baked a 9×13 chocolate cake, cut it in half and layered the halves together with chocolate icing to make the sign at the bottom. I made homemade marshmallow fondant and tinted it no taste red, using it to cover the entire cake. I then took what was left and tinted it black and cut out the letters. All of the detail on the face and headdress were painted by hand with black gel. I then tinted some white icing black to make the border along the bottom.
