Halloween is just over a month away so if you’re starting to think about what cakes you can make, how about a fun cartoon style monster cake! Now the thing I love most about this cake is it doesn’t have to be Halloween. You could definitely make it for someones birthday too.
So for this weeks video tutorial I am going to show you step by step how I make this fun monster cake…
I think my favourite thing about this cake are the colours. By airbrushing green around the side and edges of the monster it really made the green pop and actually looked quite neon. This was only emphasised more when he was placed on a black board with those bright contrasting orange horns. But if you didn’t want him green I think he would look great in any colour combination.
The shape for the monster is quite simple and I have put the link below where you can download the design I made for this. The cakes themselves were 2 rectangle cakes which I made using my vanilla sponge cake recipe. They measured 7 x 9.5 inches each and were 1 inch in height. This was slightly thinner than the template, but there was a small amount of offcuts I could use to build up his arms.
You can download the template that I used for the monster here!
This is such a fun cake and I have to admit I was really sad to see this cut (does anyone else just want to hang onto some of their cakes?)
Below you’ll find the full video tutorial. I really hope you will enjoy watching it and find it useful if you are looking to make your own monster cake!
