Dia de los Muertos Cake

Halloween has always been my favorite holiday.  This year, all of my creativity went into putting this cake together instead of into a costume.  (I'll spare you all the bright orange pictures of me dressed up as a traffic cone...)  The round base and the large skull on top are chocolate cake with ganache filling.  Each are draped in fondant and decorated with chocolate piping.  The smaller sugar skulls are gum paste.

This is my favorite tiny skull.

Happy customer, Michelle, ready to transport  Mr. Skull Cake to her office Halloween party!
 The original design for this cake belongs to the folks at the Bleeding Heart Bakery in Chicago, IL.  Thanks for the inspiration, guys!
