Coffin Cake

Here's another Halloween inspired cake I did this week, for our neighbor Michael.   We met Michael and Christine who moved onto our street just shortly after we did (yeah!)   In fact, the first night we met, he told us we "had" to mark our calendar for the weekend of the 25th, for his Halloween/Birthday party!  Don't have to tell me twice!   We'll be there!
This was a sheet cake carved into a coffin, covered in a mixture of chocolate and black fondant.   I made the top a day early so it would dry...  I wanted to have it slightly moved over, so there would be room for the skelton hand coming out!  (Hand was made out of gumpaste).  All the rest of the decorations were all made out of fondant and cookie crumbs for dirt. 
 Everything edible!

Had a great time at the party - bunch of wild and crazy people!   The kind of neighbors we love!
Happy Birthday Michael!!

Look at you, finding a Halloween party to go to without us all!! I think you have a talent for more than cakes...finding the fun people who like to party this time of year! ha! Glad you guys are doing well, and the cake is AWESOME! I cannot find my file with the brain cake, I've been looking. said...

Also? Find me some photography clients down there, and we'll fly out! Maybe a wedding or a few family shoots? :)
