I saw so many creations and inspirations from Wilton, that I had to make a Halloween cake. Inside, I made the Halloween themed funfetti and outside is vanilla buttercream.
I started with the mini-cake and decorated a web. I bought a Wilton icing for this, since it's hard to get a true black. The icing would be crazy from time to time, but overall, it got the job done.
Then after frosting my cupcakes, I worked on what I thought was color flow. I guess I didn't pay that much attention on tv when I saw Cake Girls do this trick. I thought they just used Royal Icing. I think what they actually used was Color Flow. Either way, about half of my tombstones came out alright, so I was proud to use them.
I was so excited about the tombstones, you have no idea. Then, I finished up the remaining cupcakes and moved on to the challenge: the spider. I made the spider completely out of fondant. I just modeled him how I wanted and layed him on the cake. I couldn't be more proud of how he turned out.
Overall I loved everything about this cake / cupcake creation. I think it's my best so far.
