vampire kitchen timer on Pinterest a while back, I thought he was so cute that I knew I would use him as cake inspiration one day.
Fast forward a few months and I get a call from my friend Amanda. Her daughter birthday was coming up, and she wanted a scary Halloween cake, even though her birthday was in early spring. But I still remembered my cute little vampire time and I recreated him in modeling as best I could using chocolate. He needed a few pumpkins and some black ribbon roses to complete his look.
For the scary mouths on the bottom tier, I started by molding crazy mouths to get a good size approximation. Then I scooped out a little cake and put in a little red fondant. Then I just out the lips over the hole I had made and inserted fangs, tongues, blood, etc. It looked very cool once I was finished.
And I have held on to this little vamp's photo since then, knowing that it would be the star of my Halloween post! So, what are you doing for Halloween? Dressing up? Handing out treats? Or tricks???
