While I don’t have time to decorate right now (I’m just hoping to get to making some costumes!) I do LOVE October and in honor of this wonderful month and my favorite season (fall) I just had to share one of my all time favorite cakes. It’s from back in the day when I had maybe one blog reader so it won’t be too familiar to you all so I hope you enjoy it.
I actually made it for Thanksgiving dinner 2 years ago. If I made it for Halloween I’d make it a Jack O’ Lantern! Wouldn’t that be SO cute! I might just have to do that! This was my first airbrushing ever. It was also an all-nighter for me, but most of my cakes are!! I hand carved the cake, covered it with Orange fondant and then started airbrushing away!!! I was so nervous. But I love love LOVE the end result! I added a green marbled fondant stem and airbrushed it as well.
When I showed it to my Uncle the next day he actually grabbed the stem and pulled! AHHHH! He thought it was a ceramic container and that the dessert was inside! We ended up using it as our centerpiece for the meal! This was the first time I used Ganache under fondant instead of buttercream. Changed my life! It’s my favorite way to do it. It holds in the moisture AND it doesn’t squish out all over the place when you put the fondant on. So happy October and early Halloween festivities!
