Rated 5 out of 5 by ScubaDiverRob from I loved making this cake. It was for my kids Halloween carnival. This cake puts your sculpting to the test with the nose, ears and chin. For the eyes I used a gumball and covered it in fondant and used a toothpick to keep it in place, for the teeth I used the square gum. I did tilt the head up a little and used bags of candy around the head. The silver tray I got from the local goodwill. I do agree, The instructions could use a more detail on icing techniques but once you get into, you find your grove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chicklets0524 from This project was a test for me to try my hand at sculpting, as well as fondant work, and it turned out FABULOUS!!! I had some difficulty with the nose - but thought it was so cool how the icing became putty like to work with!! SO FUN!! My veggies I did do with home made marshmallow fondant, and turned out great! I couldn't find gumballs for the eyes but found round caramel filled marshmallows and used those instead! More detailed instruction is needed for icing techniques. I think it would make a world of difference!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cheryl_gregory from The first year my daughters decided they were too old for trick or treating, I gave them a Halloween party. This cake was perfect for their party. It wasn't too difficult to make, either. You really can't mess up the face since it's supposed to be creepy. Instead of making fondant lettuce, carrots and tomatoes, I surrounded the cake with various Halloween candies. All of the party-goers loved it. But they had a hard time believing it was a cake they could eat.
