Things that make me giddy. Remember my first sculpted bust cake? Nosferatu, last December. I received these photos of his head being pulled from the deep freezer, still looking great, minus a little chunk of ear breaking off, which was promptly restored by the proud owner. So cool! Thank you for sharing, @ezrider67 and @jeffriderart! Swipe to see his "surgery" photo! ???????? #nosferatu #scarycake #halloween
“Secret Ingredient” Today marks the 5th anniversary of Sugar Spooks, a collaboration of spooky , phenomenally talented cake artists from around the globe. I am honored to have been invited to be a part of this year’s collaboration. Here is my contribution. I chose to go with some of the things I love, so a nod to absinthe and Tim Burton (notice the “Absinthe for the Recently Deceased”) felt like an obvious direction for me. Edward’s head is life sized and his scissor hand alone stands 19” tall. Ready to have your minds blown? Take a look around at www.sugarspooks.com #sugarspooks2017
Predator mask cake. I REALLY hope the client sends me a photo of the blacklight reactive green blood concealed in a candy shell reservoir inside , so that it makes a cracking sound and oozes out when you cut into it, but for now....here ya go. :) I used so many of the #sugarshapers from @sugarworksco making this cake! #alienvspredator
“If you don’t let me gut out this PIE, I will go insane AND I WILL TAKE YOU WITH ME!!!!!” -Delia Deetz Orange JUICE infused toxic green apple BEETLEJUICE PIE with a hand painted crust and sandworm. Stupid Saturn sandworms! Those little bugs are painted toffee coated pecans. Who wants a slice? #Beetlejuice #guymeetscake
Big ups to Jacob Cain from @deathisnttheend2 for letting ransack your collection to find the inspiration for the first of MANY TRULY collaborative cakes to come from @honeman_cakes and myself! Check out this twisted cake Michelle and I sculpted! Special shout outs to @renshawamericas for the INSANELY delicious and exquisitely made fondant, @sugarworksco for the best cake tools around, and @hothandsmc for our favorite modeling chocolate! So. Much. More. To. Come!!
SWIPE to see the details!! I was gonna wait until I tried a few more techniques, textures, and themes, but I get too excited sometimes and just have to share with you guys! I think it would be a conservative guess to say 381,000,000 people have either sent this to me in messages, posted it on my wall, or tagged me in the post. So I absolutely want to MAKE SURE that full credit for this brilliant concept goes to @itcamefromundermybed for her insane special FX face pies... I didn’t want to replicate her style directly, and well, this is not a prop, so some of the textures and design elements are not as easy for me to achieve with pie dough, but as someone pretty cool recently mentioned to me, “I feel like pie is having a moment”, (and if you doubt that, look no further than @thepieous and get ready to be in awe!) you KNOW I had to jump on this deservedly viral idea. By the way, @sugarworksco #SugarShapers work amazingly well with pie dough too! Here’s what I think you should probably do...snag one of those insane props from her (tell her I sent ya!) so you can keep it forever....and while you’re at it, snag one of these crazies from me, so you can have your pie.....and eat it too! I have more to show you with different aesthetics, effects, themes, and flavors....this was my first attempt so I hope to bring you something better, but I had fun playing with textures, scars, warts, coloring, and YES, even EDIBLE gnarly, bloody clumps of hair. The flavor of this specific pie is Mint Cherry and it is already spoken for, but if you want to get your hands on one, message me soon because I only plan to make a limited amount of them. So, What do you think? Would you eat it?? #halloween #eatyourface #facepie #edibleart #spooky #scary #creepy #peoplepie
