I have a middle schooler on my hands!! Where did all the time go?!?
After much debate, my oldest decided he wanted the Monster Book of Monsters from Harry Potter. My kids have been on another round of Harry Potter kicks lately with the books, movies, and even audiobooks at night.
So I took a half sheet of almond cardamom cake and split it in half. I got the base color in with fondant and modeling chocolate and got the basics shapes down first.
Next phase was breaking out the food coloring and vodka. I mainly used Americolor Warm Brown, Dark Brown, and Super Black for this cake. The gums and tongue got a mix of Super Red and Electric Purple because I ran out of Magenta.
And voila. One really creepy Monster Book of Monsters for the oldest pixie.
