That Glazed Look Skull Cake is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from My daughter's birthday is in Oct. and she bought this pan for her birthday cake. I was really skeptical when I started making this cake where it was a 3D pan that stood up. I was really happy with how easy the cake came out of the pan and that it really did stand up. I would recommend using a pound cake recipe to make this one. I did have trouble with the glaze so I just iced it with white buttercream and a small spatula instead. I also used gold dust to paint a couple of the teeth gold. I will most certainly make this cake again and have so many ideas for it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake as well as monster cupcakes for my daughter's halloween party. The kids loved it,and said it was the best cake they ever had. I am really glad I took the wilton cake classes and have found many great ideas and techniques from the site as well as other cake decorates that post their ideas. I am getting more cake orders all the time just by word of mouth and I take great pride in the enjoyment others get from my cakes. The ease of using all the right tools you can get are what makes it all worth while.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this for a party and hollowed out the eyes and the missing teeth and inserted glow sticks. It was the hit of the party! People didn't even realize it was a cake, they thought it was a decoration. The hardest part is preventing the icing that holds the front and back together from melting while you put the warm glaze on the cake. I'm sure practice will make perfect! I'm really glad I bought this pan!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Made this cake for a halloween football party. Cake was pretty easy to make and put together, but making the icing that comes with the cake pan was very diffucult to make and get the entire cake covered with it. I had to make triple the icing batch just to get the entire cake covered. Was difficult to cut into with all the layers of icing that I had to put on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My skull cake was a real hit. It was easy and fun to make. Some advice I would offer is not to use a canned frosting. It is too soft and the cake will just slide apart. The black sparkle gel is a must. It gives the eyes a a hollow glow. I am glad I bought this pan and can't wait to try some other techniques.
