i love making cakes, particularly strange ones, for instance a red robot cake, or my ever popular vagina cake. 
my roommate and i are having a zombie movie night, so of course i made a zombie cake!  it didn't go as well as i'd planned, and a lot changed over the course of making it.  i still like how it turned out, the brains are my favorite. 


and here's a good view of the brains...


i got lazy and just used two boxes of funfetti cake mix (i wanted colored bits in the brains) and added some black food coloring.  the internal red bits are a rather chunky strawberry and raspberry glaze like substance.  i made the eyes, teeth, and nose like thing out of white chocolate, and everything else if varying shades of red frosting and chunky glaze substance.  i hope it still oozes when i cut into it...

i learned a lot from the process, so my next zombie cake will be even better, most disturbing, and oozier. 
great fun.

Ha! I used to be a cake decorator - good job. You got to love an interactive theme cake - the fact that it gushes when you cut it. Great creativity.

i put the oozey bits between the layers of cake, which just made the whole thing kinda squishy, but that worked welll.  i basicly just tried to add the strawberry/raspberry goo wherever i could, in the mouth, nose, behind the eyes, things like that.  if i made it more traditional glaze like, added gelatin or even cornstarch, it would have kept together better and probably not soaked in as much.

that was my original inspiration, though i knew mine could never be so glorious.  not yet at least.  just a bit more practice.... i need to learn how to use fondant!
