Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: This is my 2nd Zombie cake... instead of repeating all that I did please refer to the female version of my zombie cakes for more info. Thanks.

What are you most proud of? The bday girl absolutely loved it & she really liked the oozing of the "blood" when she cut into it!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Details make a word of difference. Put stitch lines on clothes, buttons & pockets. I pulled at edges of the shirt all around to make it appear as his shirt was ripped. I didn't make this one as "bloody looking" as my first one.

Hi Deanna, AWESOME tutorial. I notice you said you make your own fondant. What recipe are you using. I just like the way it seems to work well with this project and I want to follow your instructions to the letter. Thanks in advance for answering.

Thank you. I found the recipe on CakeCentral.com under "Rhonda's Ultimate MMF Fondant". Have a great day.

Hey Deanna! One more question. I notice that when yu made the core board chin, your instructions said to sandwich a washer between the two egg shaped pieces then taper. What is the purpose of the washer? Or did I misunderstand the instructions?

09/21/2014 Flag

i think i did it that way for stability?? I'm pretty sure i sunk the nut into the coreboard, so when i tightened down the nuts they would only be able to go as far as the washer. Your main concern is stability - do what works for you.

What are the egg shape pieces I'm making a zombie cake this month and I think I understand u r tutorial all but the building part

those pieces are for the base of the head for the rice krispie treats to sit on. it would be the chin & jaw - then build it up with modeling chocolate for more detail. it's made out of 1/2" thick core board. hope that helps you.

Yes it does help but what is core board... do u have any extra tips I can get cut I'm going to try a cake.just like this

if you're in the USA its sold at craft stores like Michael's & Hobby Lobby called FOAM BOARD. it usually come in a sheet that measures 20" x 30" and the 1/2" means the thickness - i use this for my cake drums cut to the desired size as long as it doesnt need metal armature for the cake structure. The coreboard/foam board also comes in 1/4". I use that, cut to size, for cake rounds instead of buying the precut rounds that go under the cakes. if you cant find the foam board then stacks of cake drums would work or glue together stiff cardboard.
