My friend invited us to a Murder Mystery dinner and asked if I make dessert. Of course, I had to make a cake! The concept was the story line of the night, which we had already gotten a preview of. We need that the bride had been killed just before the wedding and we were there to figure out who did it.
I thought I'd go pretty litteral and have a dead bride on the cake with blood. For the cake itself, I made the most delicious red velvet and cream cheese frosting. It was to die for! (No pun intended)
For the dead bride, I was going to try and use modeling chocolate, but it was easier for me to just buy a doll and stick her in the cake. So that's what I did.Note, that I have no idea how to layer a cake, so I just kept stacking and hoped the doll would keep it together. She did, but she also moved the layers to make it look even more like a dress.
