He's A Scream! Cake is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I forgot to say that I didn't level the cake. Made it that much easier to do. I also did put a buttercream border all around it, and also up and down to make the hood. Oh, and obviously I didn't read Wilton's directions through, because instead of using one piece of fondant for the face and then adding the eyes and nose holes, I used one piece but cut the holes out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was the easiest of all cakes! I used buttercream frosting for the body (chocolate base, colored black), red fondant for the face, and made the fingers from red candy melts using Wilton's fingers pretzel mold w/o the pretzels. I happened to have the Megasaurus pan, and it all came out great! This will be one of my go-to Halloween cakes for sure!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from i haven't done this one yet - but i just wanted to share my favorite tip for true black fondant - start with chocolate fondant (don't try to dye white fondant black) my favorite recipe is black marshmallow fondant - it uses chocolate chip morsels so you use less black coloring gel and it is super delicious!
