My husbands birthday is coming up next week and I wanted to do him a Day of the dead cake. I'm having trouble figuring it out though. Has anyone ever done one or do you have any ideas on what I mat do? He is a total muertos fan so almost anything will do.
I am not a professional cake decorator, but it not my first cake either. I love looking at all the cakes in the gallery, you are all amazing!
Thanks for any help you may have.
Hmm I dunno..I have a grim reaper cake in my photos if that will help any...???
I'd be tempted to use an actual crafted piece for both a topper and a gift... I've purchased before from
they have figurines, sugar molds, chocolate molds, etc and would be a great place to start! You could decorate a sugar skull to resemble him? It's a fun theme!

They are wonderful. Lots of ideas, instructions, and supplies, too.
