Creepy Crawly Cake



 Sooooo......I know I said the last cake was my favorite, but this one...this one is really my favorite. I know girls aren't supposed to like bugs and frogs and snakes, but I just do. Frogs are so cute!!!! Now....I totally skip the spider. It actually creeped me out just sitting on my counter waiting to be added to the cake. It was eerily realistic. And the snake!!!! Do you see his face?? He turned out way better than I expected. I want this cake for my birthday!

This cake had lots of texture and hand painting. The tree bark started out a light brown and I added texture and painted in the grooves with gel food color. It really brought out the texture. I also painted most of the bugs, the frogs and the snake with gel food color. It made them look so realistic.



Would you just look at that spider?? He looks so real! I couldn't stand it. Spiders are not on my like list. I literally shuddered every time I looked over at this big guy sitting on my counter.


A little "paint" made these cute little dart frogs look deadly! And that bug...I don't even know what kind of bug that is, but the dark shading made his "shell" look hard and shiny. Hard to believe all of this was created out of marshmallows and sugar.



I hope you loved this one as much as I do. Even if you don't like creepy crawly things, I hope you could appreciate the amount of detail in each little critter! Let me know your thoughts!!! You can message me here, find me on Facebook and Instagram or email at hopessweetcakes@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
