This cake was created for a student of mine this year. He requested a haunted house birthday cake. Knowing that he is not as big of a fan of chocolate as I am I chose to dye the frosting brown instead of using chocolate frosting. On this cake I was able to showcase my chocolate piping abilities by creating tombstones, bats, a tree, a moon, a house, and even a lantern carrying housekeeper. This is the largest stacked cake I have created so far.
I learned that structure is key to delivering a cake successfully across town.
