Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Using the techniques for making faces learnt in Mike's Bobblehead Craftsy Lesson I made my assistant Panayota into a Zombie. We took photos as instructed by Mike & I sculpted the head from a Brownies cake. I then covered in ganache & sugarpaste (fondant). I defined the sugarpaste using modelling tools, tore some scars into the sugarpaste & then defined the areas using edible dusts. The hair is chocolate flavoured gumpaste. The eyes were made following Mike's instructions with edible dust mixed with vodka,
