How to make a Kawaii Frankenstein Cake | Kawaii cake decorating


Whoa.M.G. It’s time for a Halloween
project, a kawaii Frankenstein sheet cake. So cute! I break
up the cake decorating process by what I can prepare the night before and then
the day of. So I tackle the ears, bolts, eyes, mouth, brows, and hair. I have cocktail toothpicks that are a little long so I break off a little bit. I mixed a little blue
and a little green to make this mint fondant. I do this because then
I can customize the colors for the buttercream and fondant that are
off-white and bright white. I take a ball of fondant and roll it out to make a
giant tootsie roll with round edges. Then I fold it over and add a toothpick. I let
these dry overnight. Then I make bolts in pastel pink but pastel blue or pastel
yellow would be super cute too. I am trying to keep everything somewhat in
the pastel range. I make the bolts in two pieces. What’s happening here is that I’m
getting the fondant into two sizes. One small cylinder that is somewhat flat and
then a less small cylinder. When you have a second remember to like share or
subscribe it definitely helps me make a new video every week. Then you’re going
to want to adhere both pieces. If the fondant isn’t tacky right now just use a
little bit of water. I missed adding the toothpick on screen
but it’s exactly the same as the ears which I just showed. Make the eyes using
black and white fondant. The eyes are made up of three different sized pieces. Two are piping tips and one is a small round cookie cutter. I want the blacks of
the eyes to be flat. I give it more dimension by making the
whites of the eyes 3d; to do this I place a piece of saran wrap on top of the
fondant and I use the piping tips to cut out the whites. See? Dimension. I make the
mouth black. I make lots of options so I can choose the cutest one for the cake. My camera died as I was making a little
mummy scar but it’s three small pieces overlapping a piece that’s slightly
longer. So I’m a little back and forth in the video but here you can see where I
applied the whites of the eyes. Then I make the furrowed brow. Roll out a piece
of fondant into a rectangular shape. That’s slightly less than the width of
the cake. Use the same cookie cutters to cut where the eyes should be. I make this in two
layers to help build it up. I used whites but now that I’ve done
this I actually recommend using the same green color throughout. Now roll out a rectangular
piece that’s slightly larger and place it over this piece. What I
learned is that it should go all the way up the cake so it’s less lumpy. Later on in this
video I will show you the version that I made earlier this day
that I decided to scrap. You’re probably noticing that I’m not using water to
adhere the pieces but that’s because the fondant is still very tacky. Now for the hair I
wanted to go with a marble like effect to give it a little bit more
dimension but a solid is super cute as well. To get this effect I mix three
colors together. I keep folding over until I
get the desired color. Here I’m cutting out the bangs using a
template. To make the bangs extra cute, I layer a piece of saran wrap and then
smooth it out with a dull butter knife. This gives the edges of
the bangs a curve. I use my vanilla cake video recipe to bake a 9 by 13 sheet cake. I’ll link it below so
so the video doesn’t get too long. If you want this to color
tie-dye effect just split the batch in two- pink and green and swirl. I crumb coat to lock in
any crumbs. Make sure the sheet cake is cooled. Tip! I prefer to decorate
the bottom of the cake as the top. The part that is actually touching the pan
as its bakes. I do this because it helps keep the corners really sharp. I refrigerate the crumbed cake for 10
minutes to seal in the crumbs. Then I frost with mint buttercream
to start the canvas. Once it’s frosted I place in the fridge
again for 10 minutes. Then I add the accessories. The eyes and brows. Trim as necessary. I use a food only pair
of scissors. Then I add the hair. The ear is at the same level as the eyes. My preference for the bolts is just a few inches below. Decorating success! If you have any questions

on my Instagram. Thanks so much for watching! I hope you have a stellar week and I will
see you next Saturday. Here is the hilarious mock-up I did in
PowerPoint. I have no real photoshop skills.
