I made this skull cake for Halloween this year but did not get it posted until now.  I made a red velvet cake with buttercream frosting.  It is a little sloppy because it was my practice cake but I liked it so much I didn't make a second...

I took it to my works Halloween Pot Luck but everyone hated to cut it cause they thought it looked so cool and/or gross Smiley  But the funny thing was everyone kept saying who made that skull...oh it was Kristi, how does she have time for all that stuff.  Can't wait to make a zombie version...hum maybe for Valentine's Day it could be eating a heart...oh the possibilities
Thanks for looking.

its awesome! i asked for a cake pan like that for birthday/christmas this year but since no one wants to eat skull cake every time i bake something i havent gotten it yet.  lol  yours looks very cool, and im sure it was tasty too.

Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

knitting is hot

It is the Wilton pan, it's awesome...worked very well didn't even stick.  Everyone is used to me having skulls everywhere so a cake just fits right in.  Thanks for looking

Fantastic!  Great detail - those cheekbones, and the teeth - very cool.  How many cake mixes did it take?

That's awesome!
Is that the one that comes in two pieces?  And if it is how did you get them to stay together?  My boyfriend and his mom made me a cake like that for my birthday but they didn't know how to get it to stay together.  I think they used frosting and the face eventually just slid off lol xD

Well dance this fading life away.

Yea it does come in 2 pieces...I just used frosting and then put it in the freezer.  It stayed together pretty good for me maybe the freezing helped.  Thanks for looking Smiley
