Creepy Eyes

My youngest celebrated his 6th birthday over the weekend, and loves Halloween and all creepy things. This slime-oozing cake, featuring an icky eyeball creature, was inspired by his book ‘Goodnight Goon’ as well as his love of trashpack trashies, germies, and crashling aliens. The cake was lemon pound cake filled with lemon buttercream and covered with fondant. The ‘slime’ was tinted piping gel, thinned with corn syrup and water. I made the eyeball creature from floral wire, covered with modeling chocolate, fondant, and royal icing. I then painted them with food colors, and added confectioner’s glaze to the eyeballs for some shine. This was a fun cake to make, and Austin loved it! Thanks for looking.
