I don’t usually do cakes in the week because I am at the studio, but I love being contacted by honeys planning surprise cakes for their friends.
I always ask for adjectives so that I can plan their spirit animal equivalent in cake form and make their days!
I hoped to make something a little creepy but not too gory. After all, I still wanted people to actually want to sink his teeth into it. I had made these finger cookies for Halloween last year but wanted them to look like they were curling out of the cake so I baked them over a buttered upside-down bundt cake dish. It worked really well! The nails are almonds and I dipped the edges in red dye to make them look super zombie-esque. It was also my first time making drip ganache glaze, I learnt a lot and know what consistency is best for next time.
