I have been SO excited about doing this cake for so long. I mean REALLy, REALLY, REALLY excited!
When my son was very little I saw these monster cakes on pintrest. I knew that was what I wanted to do for my little monster’s first birthday! They are just so cute with the cake pop eyes, whoever thought of that was so smart! Well a year later and I am so pleased at how it turned out! His design changed a little since I had to put glasses on him just like my little man! 🙂 I LOVE IT! I couldn’t be any more pleased. I drew inspiration from this cake.
Isn’t he so cute?! I used a wilton decorating tip #233. It was my first time using this tip and it was a lot of fun and not that difficult. He is a 4 layer 4inch cake. Perfect size for a first birthday!
I made his eyes, glasses, nose, mouth and horns out of modeling chocolate using this recipe. I haven’t used modeling chocolate in a long time. I forgot how much I really enjoy working with it. Its easy to handle and has such good results. I also used my favorite cake recipe.
It was a lot of fun watching my little monster dig in. He was a little hesitant at first but then dug right in!
He really enjoyed eating the eyes! 😉
While my monster enjoyed his cake we enjoyed this yummy 3 layer chocolate cake filled with chocolate mousse and frosted in chocolate swiss meringue buttercream! Yum!
I loved doing this cake! Now I need to find another cake project with fir.
I can’t believe its been a year since I did my daughters first birthday cake. It feels like its been so much longer than that. I have learned so much!
My son has taught me so much and brings so much joy into our lives!!!! I am so proud of him and all he has been through. He really is amazing. To learn more about his journey with congenital cataracts visit his blog here. I love you little monster!
