Picture of Zombie Cake
Dustins_Birthday_Cake_Inside.jpg
I made this cake for my brother's birthday last year.  The cake was yellow cake colored green and chocolate cake layered in a checkerboard pattern.  It was decorated with vanilla frosting, sour Skittles, and silhouettes of the undead cut from raspberry fruit roll ups.  I found that cutting fruit roll ups with a clean exact-o knife was much easier than trying to color fondant evenly, roll it thin enough, and then cut precisely.

Were you going to instruct us on how to make this, or are you just showing off your skills?
I agree. Looks impressive, but let's not forget the purpose of the site. :) After all it's not "bragables.com" :p

I posted this for the photo instructable contest, hence no instructions at the time. I was veeeery pregnant when I made that cake and am now pretty busy with a baby so I haven't had time to make another one with pics along the way. This is a great instructable on how to do the checkerboard:

The zombies are simply fruit roll ups that I cut with a fresh x-acto knife using a print out of the zombie shapes that I could see through the dried fruit rolls. I left the backing on the fruit rolls until I was finished cutting out the shapes.

Thanks for the reply, and the link.
And congrats for your baby! :)

Best use of fruit roll ups ever? This zombie cake looks amazing. I really like the checkerboard pattern.
