Let’s start with the finished product first… Feeling hungry yet?
First thing I do is bake a disgustingly rich black chocolate sour cream pound cake
Mmm… Fresh from the oven and still warm!
While the cake is cooling, I make a chocolate skull in a mold I poured using an old Halloween prop
Once the cake is cool, I attach the chocolate skull using chocolate buttercream frosting
Once the skull is painted, I carefully apply a layer of marshmallow fondant (I even made ears!)
Then I cut open my fondant and peel it back to reveal the skull beneath!
A little more gel food color as well as a nice bath of chocolate syrup and we’re done! But will anyone eat it?
Carving the first slice!
Mmm… People get braver once they try the delicious cake underneath
Tasty tasty scarycake!
All gone! Time to bake something else disgustingly delicious!
