I made a two layer chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.
I used those little edible candy eyes and poked them all over. I made a mouth with cherry pull and peels for lips and giant marshmallows for teeth. I pulled the curve off some candy canes and stuck them around the top for spikes. Then I layered a bunch of green apple pull and peels all around the bottom of the cake over the cake plate to look like slimy tentacles.
bug thought it was incredible, and that's all that mattered to me!
And suddenly my little bug was a great big, HUGE 5 year old. Which was weird.
(more monster party tomorrow!)
