  Yay zombies!!! My cousin whom adores zombies had a birthday this week. I decided a zombie cake was best for this occasion.

It is a chocolate sponge, vanilla crumb coat, with green dyed cool whip as filling. Cool whip is amazing as a filling! 1. because it mixes with anything and always tastes great (i.e. hot chocolate mix, cappuccino mix, ...anything?) and 2. because for this particular cake, the cool whip was nearly frozen when I put it in the cake. When my dear cousin ate the cake, the cool whip had warmed, melted, and ooozed out- what you may expect from a zombie cake.

The cake was made from 3 of wiltons mini cake pans (they make cakes that look like short cakes you might buy from the grocerie store).  Layered one on top of another.

Then I put 3 yellow+1red food coloring into 1 package of wilton fondant. Fondant naturally rips if its too thin in spots, so I just layed it over the cake. It ripped in several different spots so I just went with it.

1 piece of black licorice cut into strips, then covered in black piping gel (safeway brand)

1 container of RED-RED (wilton) food coloring. Comes in a small jar, looks an awful lot like coagulated blood   Smiley

Then I picked up a package of rubber body parts at Fred Meyers for $1.00

Comments, questions? Thanks for looking    Grin
