Inspired by 'The Walking Dead', I tried to create a zombie head cake with blood and gore and Daryl Dixon's arrow in the brain for halloween. The cake is chocolate and I used dark chocolate ganache as it has a firmer structure than buttercream. Dowels were used to hold the structure of the 3 x 6 inch cakes, which were 3 inches high. I used carma tacino fondant, but wish I used modelling chocolate for better texture. It's my first time carving and painting a cake like this, so I hope you like it and feel free to comment and/or criticise - all is welcome as I'm just learning and want to improve.
