Sometimes people forget to tell me things. Like my friend Parker, who neglected to tell me until yesterday that it was his birthday today.
The poor guy has had quite the week, and I wanted to do something special for him.
Unfortuanately, today Catie learned that rushing marzipan has ugly consequences. (Literally). But hey--its the thought that counts, right?
The cake is a basic chocolate chip maple cake and the whole thing is made of Fakezipan (see my recipe).
The blood spatter is fake, don't worry. Parker likes to blow heads off mutants in the game, so I thought it'd be funny.
The body was constructed from 4 cupcakes, which I regret. I need to get some alternate cookware, because my designs can't keep up with my product. It's a learning curve. As you can see, the cupcakes collapsed under the weight of the fakezipan, so the body looks really jenky. Ah well. Still tastes like awesome.
If I have some time, I'm going to work on this design. I'd like to make it REALLY close to the actual design in the future, but for 3 hours and a bottom-of-the-barrel style ingredient scrounge, I'd say I did ok.
