I stole my mummy cake idea from this cake. This was a fun cake to make. I didn't use the 3-D Skull Pan though. I used a ball pan and buttercream icing.
I filled the center with Rasberry Jam and then crumb coated the entire cake so it was smooth. After it set up I did the eyes in Yellow and black (tip 8) with red vein lines (tip 1). I used the (1M tip) and with white buttercream icing i ran ribbons of the icing around the ball. Some overlapped others where they drooped and some broke making it look like the wrapping was coming loose. I had the icing ribboned enough that the eyes appeared to be underneith but not hidden.

I couldn't wait to buy this pan and try it out, and I wasn't disappointed. The mummy made a great Hallowe'en cake. I liked that neither the buttercream nor the fondant had to be perfect, since it was supposed to look old. I used gumball eyeballs to save time, and also brushed the fondant strips with cocoa instead of using chalk. Some brown sugar 'sand' and chocolate 'pebbles' around the base, and it looked great!

The cake was a hit for my brother's 39th Birthday. (He was the mummy). The hardes part was getting all of the fondant strips lined up right. Other wise it was "piece of cake"!
