Little Monster Cake
This was a last minute request...really last minute. I was asked Sunday afternoon and needed to deliver by Monday at 4pm. The cake was for a little boy's first year birthday. It was his little smash cake. My friend who gives me the most business ever asked if I had a cake I could make her on hand, luckily I did, and I owed her a favor. It all worked out! I used the fondant and icings I had on hand from my sister's cake and took everything out of the fridge to decorate. It was the easiest ever because I had everything done and just had to decorate it all. The top is Mike Wazowski form Monsters Inc. I used the Frozen Butter Cream Transfer method to achieve that result. I used Marshmallow Fondant to make the doors around the cake and modeling chocolate to make the number. This cake was super fun and worked out great. The inside was a devil's food with chocolate ganache. I must say that this cake was one of the few I got to make with out scouring the internet for ideas. It popped into my head and I just went with it. I am certainly pleased with how it turned out and appreciate that I was able to practice techniques that I have learned. Thanks dear friend for the opportunity!
