In the spirit of "Steele Magnolias," I present this dead possum complete with tire tracks. Yes, it's red velvet inside. I guess you have to be from the Southern USA to appreciate this, but I've done a lot for birthdays and Groom's Cakes. It's carved cake with buttercream and airbrush. Very Funny.

This was a suprize for my friend's birthday. Got the idea from Jenn123's cake. My friend has a thing with possums...alive or dead! She loved the cake & told me she wanted a bigger one for her wedding (not engaged, lol)! It was red velvet inside, with cream cheese icing (used the spatula striping method with a grass tip for the fur). MMM for the head, feet, and tail. I used melted white chocolate and color dabbed all over the head and tail for added "fur." I'm really happy with it except the tire mark...

A customer requested that I make a cake that looked like roadkill for a party that she hostesses with her husband every year. They call it a roadkill bash, and everyone is supposed to bring food that looks disgusting but tastes good. That's my sense of humor!! The tire tracks are not as good as I would have liked, but after doing all that fur, my hands were going numb. She LOVED the result!

A friend of mine threw her husband a surprise 30th bday party; the theme being 'saying goodbye to his youth'. When she told me 'funeral theme' I knew this was a chance to get creative.

This cake was for my husbands birthday and he wanted a Jerry Garcia cake.  The cake is strawberry (from scratch) with white chocolate buttercream for the flesh tone and regular buttercream for all other.  The nose is made from white chocolate modeling chocolate.  I'm not totally satisfied but he was happy and enjoyed it very much

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"

This is a fondant deer I am working on for a groom's cake this weekend (if all goes will be a 3D model of his jeep with a deer draped avross the hood!)  The bride and groom are going on a hunting trip for their honeymoon, he has no idea what his cake will be.  all he said was that he wanted a deer on it, the bride said "Run with It!!!" and this is the idea that she and I settled on.  Still have lots of detail work left to go, will post another photo of the whole cake when it's finished.

This is an over the hill cake shaped like a headstone.  The cake has internal dowels to add support so it can be "tall and thin".  I used royal icing for the grass.

I made this a couple of years ago for hubby's 30th birthday. He's a huge Grateful Dead fan.  Bottom was a 9 x 13, top a 9 inch round.  I printed a copy of the steal your face symbol, cut out the pieces and laid them on the cake, and then used a toothpick to trace the symbol onto the cake (this was before I knew about the pin prick method).  All buttercream.

Inspired by Ellepal's Zombie Head..........
8" Chocolate/yellow cake filled & iced with chocolate icing.  
Cake was carved into approximate shape and cake scraps
used to build up the facial features (cheekbones, brows, nose).
Fondant eyeball and teeth were put in position, then the cake
was covered in fondant. Finally, cake was airbrushed and 
painted with food color to look even creepier!

I made this cake for my son's birthday.  He had to have it after seeing  waterfallsoygurl's cake.  I also looked at the other road kill cakes on cc for inspiration.  It did not turn out as well as any of the others.  I did not have the time I wanted to spend on it so it suffered in the process.  buttercream fur using grass tip.  MMF tail, feet and head.

Made this for my BIL's 30th Birthday... for those who don't get the reference, this is a replica of the album artwork from The Grateful Dead's "Terrapin Station"  I modified it to make it into a birthday celebration!  House is actually made of chocolate cookie and assembled like a gingerbread house.  Details in royal icing, fondant, and gumpaste.   Turtle figures are polymer clay sculptures, airburshed with thinned acrylic paint.

Myself & best friend did this for a 16yr olds birthday party at a historic prison recently. She wanted her favorite doll & Johnny Depp on the cake. The party was for 100+ people so we ended up making what felt like a million cupcakes covered w/ red dyed coconut flakes, tiny candy bones, and "metal" studs (which we also used to rim the cake as well).  
Ps-The studs are actually those candy dots from your childhood that you would always end up eating a little bit of the paper covered in luster dust!

Some poor soul lost his head and has the brains to prove it!  Good eaten when still warm!   Cake iced in butter creme, airbrushed skins tones, and used fondant for neck bone, tongue and bloody cleaver.  Rubber rat and gummy candy eye for effects; sorry ran out of time to make those.  Green and Red food color added to cake inside for a gross effect !
