Picture of Ketchup Cake
It's birthday time and you want to make a cake that is unique and customized for your friend. You want him or her to say "wow that's the coolest cake I've ever received." You don't need fondant - only some normal household cake and candy products and a little bit of creativity.
Here is an example of a cake baked for a friend that is obsessed with ketchup!

What you need:
(1) cake mix
(2) computer (for research!)
(3) icing (chocolate and vanilla)
(4) food coloring
(5) ziplock freezer bags
(6) scissors
(7) jelly beans
(8) a little creativity!

Step 1: The idea!

What is the first thing that you think of when your friend comes to mind? Is it a hobby? An obsession? Something quirky? Chances are it can be put on a cake. The simpler an idea it is, the better executed it can be.
For this cake, the idea was inspired by my friend's obsession with ketchup.

My sister in law is in love with ketchup and I did a similar cake a few years ago when she turned 27. I made the inside red velvet to simulate ketchup on the inside of the cake as well as the outside. This one was my first attempt at doing a novelty cake... so much fun!

this is a great cake! i filled it with some extra white chocolate icing i had colored with dark red to look like real ketchup! When i served it, the filling dripped out from being melted by the oven, it looked like real ketchup! (this got a few odd glances. haha!) this could also be used as a dripping blood effect for halloween! Thanks for the great idea!
