Hi Smiley

I am hoping to create a Halloween cake consisting of a headstone with a head and hand coming out of it.  The hand is the only part I am having trouble coming up with.  Maybe Marzipan or sculpted cake?  Any suggestions would be great!

it seems like you could get a clean rubber/plastic glove and fill it with something that will keep its shape.  like maybe some jello mixed with cool whip or cream cheese to give it an opaque appearance?

fondant is always great to sculpt with, you could use a palm shaped piece and cover toothpicks part way with fondant and stick them in and blend the seams to look like fingers.

Take a peek!

I'd think you could use cookes.  Like thoes vanilla things . . . um Vienna fingers I think.  and you could cut them in half and frost them.  That would look like headstones.

Depending on the size of the cake, I'd just use figure piping for the hand-- construct your headstone from cake, cookie, or whatever, ice, make the head, and pipe the hand right onto the cake with icing and a large round tip.  If you're still not sure what I'm talking about, check here:


Good luck!
