What’s the secret to making the coolest children’s cake around? Monsters and aliens, of course! Strike the right balance between gross and cute with gumpaste figures and hand piping, and you’re sure to delight the children in your life.
Decorate each layer of this cake separately, then top the larger round cake with the smaller one. Cake balls serve as eyes, and bright colored frosting is perfect for the rest of the detail on these friendly monsters.
To create the Happy Birthday letters, arms, feet and teeth use fondant and alphabet cutters. The big smile is simply piped chocolate.
