This is my first posted project so forgive any screw ups!

This is the cake I made for my son's 10th birthday over the weekend. My husband has celiac disease (allergies to all wheat products) so I have not made a cake in at least 5 years- but this turned out better than I imagined.

I used a box mix and regular round cake pan. The yellow is a homemade marshmallow fondant (that my sister showed me),  made with melted marshmallows, powdered sugar and a gel food coloring. The mixture is then rolled out and placed over the  frosted cake (the frosting helps the fondant stay in place), stretched to cover all edges of cake with one large piece, smoothed to eliminate wrinkles, then trimmed of excess. The smiley face and blood spot were free handed with decorating gel.

My son was so thrilled he wouldn't let us put candles in it and made us wait 3 days to finally cut a piece!
Without my sister's very patient almost saintlike help this cake would not have been possible, leaving me to order another grocery store cake that looks like everyone else's and costs an obscene amount of money for a cake we were never truly happy with. Thank you Jamie.

Oh I know how it feels with celiac, my brother has it and it's hard to find good foods to cook for him (well used to, I live states away now.)

That cake looks amazing! I love it, the 'human bean juice' is a nice touch hahaa

Yeah I'm all over that comic book and movie Cheesy

My son loves the blood too. I wanted it there also so it did not look like we were having a Wal-Mart pary theme! Grin

Fantastic! Simple and very effective.

Hmmmm, think it's possible to make icing in an eye-watering enough blue to do Dr. Manhatten?
