Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)
This has to be the strangest cake request we've ever had, but it was a lot of fun to make! :)
The theme was the Mexican "Day of the Dead" celebration (even though the customers are not latin at all, they just like it!)
The coffins are made of cake, iced in BC. The base, backboard, skeletons and wires holding the cross and flags are the only non-edible components. The dirt is oreo crumbs, the skulls are fondant/gum paste and everything else is gumpaste (even accents on the skeletons). 23"x14"x12"
