Ghost By msauer
3D ghost made with one layer of Banana Cream Dream cake and three layers of Chocolate Mocha Liqueur cake. BC icing covered in a “sheet” of fondant. Gumpaste chain airbrushed with silver luster dust. Can’t see the puple pearl dust accents in this picture, but looked really cool and irredescent with the purple lights! Suspended a bowl with dry ice in the stand for fog around cake. Really spooky looking with all the ambiance at the party. Toughest cake ever to transport without breaking! Thanks for looking.

Halloween Wedding

Halloween Wedding By sweetsue1
This cake is for a very small wedding (12 people) on Halloween. The bride and groom and all of the guests will be in full costumes. Unfortunately, the order was only given to me 3 days before Halloween, so I couldn’t spend the time I normally spend on a wedding cake! The cake is chocolate butter filled with mocha buttercream. I covered the cake with chocolate fondant dyed black and made the ghosts out of fondant. The webs are royal icing. I purchased the sugar decorations due to the late notice.
