Last year I had this great idea. I was going to dye cupcake batter green, and bake it directly in the pan, without liners. Then when it was done, I would have this perfectly green cake with a flat top that I could decorate to look like Frankenstein’s monster. If you’ve ever baked a cake, you know why my vision didn’t happen for me. Although the inside was perfectly green, the outside was browny green. Yuck. Since I didn’t want to trash them, I wound up turning them into cake balls.
Then I forgot about it. Until I found this on Pinterest. And I thought, “frost this in green, and it’s a Frankenstein head!!!”
I baked up a few mini cakes in ramekins and crumb coated them. Then let them chill in the fridge overnight. Then Ellie and I decorated them. I wanted to make a Frankenstein (of course) and she wanted to make a spider web with a spider on top. This is what we came up with.
The most amazing, creative Frankenstein cake ever made. (Inspired by this famous guy.)
Should I be embarrassed that my cakes (I would NOT, by an means, call myself a cake person) suffer in comparison to a five-year-old’s?
