I wonder if Zombies eat cupcakes….

It seems like its been months since I have posted here…oh wait…it has. Well darn. To be honest I’ve wanted to, I really have, Ive missed you all so much. Its just that its so gosh darn hard to sit down and type anything worth reading, in between baking, frosting, and running around the kitchen like a crazy person screaming about “fondant this” and “more chocolate chips that”. But I just needed to share one of my favorite cakes that I have made so far this year.

                                                                                Zombie Party

For those of you who know me (and for those that dont, you’re probably better off…I’m a little weird.) you can attest to the following statement. I am a scaredy cat. Yes, I admit, while I can be fearless in some ways, I am a big ball of terrified nerves in others. Point being…Scary/Gory Movies. Whether it be ghost, zombies, aliens, or some psychopathic creep with a ridiculous agenda, I watch a movie with the least bit of fright, I wont sleep for a week. This is a huge problem in my household though, because my loving boyfriend insists on making me watch these horrible movies…well he did for a while until I almost passed out at the movie theater…he kind of back off a bit.

There are minor exceptions to this rule, certain movies for the love of me just haven’t scared me. For example “The Grudge” I slept like a baby after that one, “Saw 2″…I was fine (not the other Saw movies though. screw that, I couldn’t sleep let alone eat for a while), & “1408” I thought it was great, especially when my boyfriend nearly jumped out of his seat 90 times (he he he sweet revenge). But other than those 3 movies I’m pretty much the biggest baby when it comes to horror/gore that you’ll ever meet. Perfect example, I saw “Signs” in the movie theater when it came out, and right now you’re saying to yourself “please tell me she isn’t going to say she was afraid of that craptastic movie…” well I was! I cant help it! I slept with glasses of water around my bed for a week after…only until I kept spilling said glasses of water everywhere did I finally decide maybe the aliens were not coming to take me after all.

But I digress, basically the point I was trying to make is I’m afraid of these things when they are on the big screen or my tv…but when customers ask me to make them anything remotely gross/scarey for a cake, I am THRILLED! Like my first ever gross cake here. Its odd, I swear, if you want blood, guts,  ZOMBIES, or aliens ..I am all over that, but dont expect me to watch them on my tv…at least without a bat, mace, and maybe a tinfoil helmet.

So the story behind this cake is one of my awesome customers contacted me in hopes of getting a “Zombie Party” themed cake for her husband’s birthday. I was so up for the challenge. My favorite out of the three top characters would have to be “Clarice” (yes I named them)…I have this crazy habit of conversing with these characters (thankfully none have started talking back yet) and Clarice just seemed like a good name.

The other two characters are “Ed Who lost his head”

and “One eyed Bob”

Along with some other details, I have to say I was pretty darn happy with how this cake turned out and I hope you like it too.
