Im going to be making a 3D Zombie cake (upper bust and head).
I need the cake to have some sort of a fake blood pack inserted into the forehead of the zombie. The parents of the birthday girl will know where to cut/stab the cake - but it will be a surprise to the bday girl ('The Walking Dead' movie fan & of course the only way to kill a zombie is to the head - haha).
I have an idea as to how to do it but was wondering if others had any input.
I'll be using modeling chocolate or 50/50 modeling choc/fondant for most of the covering.
I was thinking of putting fake blood in a snack size ziplock bag between the outside of the cake and the modeling choc. Maybe freeze the blood in a flat layer to be easier to place it?? Im going to need to work on the consistancy of the blood too - i dont want the fake blood to squirt too much so as to not ruin her clothes!!
So I'm open to any ideas!
