This drop dead cat cake is a funny cake chosen by my granddaughter for her 16th birthday. First I made my favorite butter cake recipe and cooked it in a 10 inch round tin. Slightly needed to cut the top to flatten then covered with butter icing and then blue fondant.
Then it was time to make the brains. I took red fondant and rolled into thin sausages and then placed on the cake in a wiggly fashion and squished together then made the eyes with circles of white fondant and black strips, criss crossing, then the mouth and tongue. Next the collar and a jagged piece across the front of the brains and small jagged pieces on the face above the eyes and little dots under the eyes for tears. I decorate at night sometimes in the wee hours as it’s cooler here in Australia and I love the quiet, it helps me to be creative.
It was a fun cake to make although I was a little lost as what it represented until my granddaughter explained it was from a game called Drop Dead Kitty.
