Bleeding skulls cake

For my husband’s 41st yesterday. My six year old insisted he have a “scary” cake—and he saw this one over my shoulder on Pinterest and said it was what dad would want. (Husband would have preferred a black cake with black skulls, but I didn’t want to use that much food coloring since he likes vanilla flavor over chocolate. ) I’d call it a Pinterest win! Mine is a little smaller and has fewer skulls, but it’s overall quite close to the original.

I LOVE this SO much! Did you mold all of those skulls, or did you find them for sale somewhere?

I made them in a skull ice cube mold from Amazon (one that was two pieces, silicon, and pretty cheap-like ten dollars for two molds). Cheap white candy coating (almond bark in the us) that I melted in the microwave. I think it tastes gross but my kids think it’s gourmet lol.

ah, I’ve seen that mold then. Nice!
You are correct, those candy melt wafers are HORRID. Absolutely gross.

This is so fantastic! The blood wouldn’t be nearly as dramatic on a black cake. :wink:
