Monster Mash

I was going through my pictures this weekend, 
and I remembered this cake I made for our baby’s first birthday last year!  
The theme was loosely, Our Little Monster.
I had seen a monster face like this on the internet, and just knew it would make the cutest cake!
I thought I would post this now, because it would be a great cake for a Halloween party!
Spooky, but not scary!

All you need is:

  • 1, 2-layer cake of any flavour
  • 2 containers of white icing: 
    • 1 container should be tinted with green food colouring for the icing base.
    • Use the other container for enough icing kept white for the eyeball and tooth, and enough icing to tint a darker green for the warts!
  • Black gel icing (I bought mine at Walmart) for the eyeball centre and mouth.
  • Black licorice strings for the hair.

(I really, really love Halloween in case you haven’t noticed…)
