Let me just start off by saying that I didn't want to do this cake... not at all. I didn't think that I had the ability, nor did I want to make it. I don't like horror movies... and I hate blood! But the couple begged me relentlessly over the course of an entire month, so I said OK. This is a grooms cake for a wedding tomorrow. And as I look at the stupid thing I just don't know what to think. Does the hand look OK... I think it looks kind of remedial? I used sugarveil for blood because it would dry shiny... now that I look at it Ijust don't know if that was the right choice. Should I pour some thinned royal icing over it to dull it out? Also, I had made a butchers knife out of fondant to go on the end right where the arm is cut off... but DH thought it was a real and picked it up abruptly to put it away, and broke it. So now I am unsure if my new one that I made will dry in time. Do you think that a color flow butchers knife will work? I know that will dry over night and make it in time... but it would be awfully thin.... I just don't know. I need ideas please! icon_cry.gif

I think it looks GROSS! And btw that IS a compliment!

Who the heck would want this at their wedding? Please tell me the connection! Why do they want this?

I think you did an awesome job!

I think a fondant knife would look better. I hope it dries in time!

ew that is so disgusting that its probably perfect just the way it is. i think the blood is quite realistic.

I think the knife would add to it - if it doesnt dry to could just place it on the board like the hand is reaching for it even in death.

The groom is apparently really into B rated horror flicks. I just can't see it at a wedding!

I know that you did not want to do this cake, cuz yeah...that is a very strange request...but I have to say...This cake is AWESOME! I suppose that makes me morbid, but as far as pulling it off, you have more than done so! icon_smile.gif Don't change a thing...if the knife dries in time, then use it. Otherwise, I say it is perfect! icon_smile.gif.

I think the wedding ring idea is awesome...of course, this is coming from a person whose secret wish is to play Mrs. Lovitz in the Sondheim musical "The Ballad of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street". I guess I will have to settle for being a regular baker (not one who bake people into pies!) LOL

I LOVE groom's cakes!! It gives the groom an opportunity to show his side at the wedding! The cake seems to be more about the bride usually. I LOVE this cake!! No matter how grotesque it is, it shows the groom's side and if people are at the wedding and understand the groom, then they will understand the cake. BTW, I love Teerrig's idea of putting a wedding ring on it!! thumbs_up.gif

wgoat5,

I have been a huge fan of the musical since I was a kid...so, imagine how giddy I was when I found out that it was coming out as a film...and with Johnny Depp as the lead! Of course, the singing is weak, but the movie is great and Johnny Depp really did an awesome job...Okay...I'll stop hijacking the thread now...

Wow...that's really gross...but in a good way.

The wedding ring is a great idea! Regarding the fondant knife, do you have any Tylo powder to knead into the fondant. If you use a little more than you normally would when making modeling paste it will dry faster...mind, you will have to work faster.

Well done, and may I say ICK!
