I made this cake for a very good friend's October birthday, who is a huge horror and comic fan. This was made custom to look like him. It was a surprise for him and he absolutely loved it.
The tombstone is red velvet cake covered in fondant. The zombie is red velvet cake covered in fondant. The fingers are all fondant and the grass/ground is fondant. The dirt is made from chocolate sandwich cookies (minus their cream layer) and ginger snaps ground up in the food processor. It was hand painted with gel food colorings mixed like watercolors.
