Today's cake was created for my niece's 6th birthday party. I heard she wanted a Monster High cake so I asked her to look on Pinterest for some ideas that she liked and I would come up with something.Confronted with too many choices the task of designing the cake was passed back to me. For this cake I took bits and pieces of design elements I liked and created a two-tiered cake made with a zebra-style (chocolate and vanilla) batter.
I covered the cake in pink and purple buttercream and then added fondant accents. The top portrait plaque was made entirely of fondant and was created much like a jig-saw puzzle. Frankie Stein looks pretty good made out of sugar, don't you think?
