This Craftster post caught my eye because from the thumbnail, I thought this was going to be a felt hoop. But rather, it was about cake, and that’s pretty good too.
Pottermouth of Savannah, GA, was asked by a friend to use a vintage Wilton cake pan of “The Count” from Sesame Street to make a birthday cake for her daughter.
The one special request, make him look, “less high” than he did on the package. You be the judge with the pictures here, but I think Pottermouth did a fantastic job! Just a tweak to The Count’s eyes and he’s good to go.
“Buttery caramel flavored moist bundt cake drizzled with homemade salted caramel sauce and dusted with Biscoff Cookie Crumbles.”
So begins Kathleen’s post on how she made her Star Wars Sarlacc bundt cake. A pretty tasty beginning, I’d say!
She recreated the omnivorous creature from “Return of the Jedi” in cake form, complete with little almond sliver spikes inside the center and cookie batter tentacles. I think the teeth she added are the icing on the cake (ahem – they’re made from frosting, after all…).
Be sure to check out her other Star Wars confections, such as Sarlacc cupcakes, Wampa cake, Tusken Raiders cookies, and Peppermint Jawa Brownies, as well as her Facebook page and Instagram feed. But I warn you, don’t do it on an empty stomach – her pics are mouth-watering!

Usiris23 posted a tutorial (and the cupcakes were made by Instructables user SemadarG ) over on Imgur on how to make these scrumptious zombie teeth cupcakes for Halloween. Believe it or not, everything on top of the cupcake is actually just fondant and food coloring.
The fresh blood finish is made by mixing red coloring gel with drops of vodka of lemon extract. The dried blood is a mix red with a drop of royal blue and drops of vodka/lemon extract. Using a brush, apply the “fresh blood” color mix around the torn skin tissue, and apply the “dried blood” color mix around the gums, especially where the gums meet the skin tissue.
Can you imagine biting into one of these, if it were a red velvet cupcake?
I almost can’t believe that this incredible sculpture of Groot is a cake!! Isn’t it amazing? It was made by the hugely talented Tattooed Bakers who have made dozens (if not hundreds) of other equally mind-blowing cakes.

Mistermonkus recently posted this cake of Ralph Wiggum from, “The Simpsons,” on both Imgur and Reddit. To be clear, this above image is not an artist’s rendering of what the cake will look like. This is not a drawing. THIS IS THE ACTUAL CAKE!
The baker made three cakes to start with: 2 x 6″, 2 x 7″ and a loaf pan red velvet cakes and layered with vanilla bean swiss meringue buttercream. His head, arm, and foot out of Rice Krispies treats, with the red coloring to make it look like brains. She then carved his body and leg out of cake and covered all his parts in buttercream. There are a few wooden support dowels throughout him to hold him steady, and he took about five days to complete.
Brownshill, England resident Lara Clarke, made this life-size Johnny Depp cake over a two-month period for the Cake International show, which took place earlier this month. Lara is a baker at Tasty Cakes.
The cake comes in at a whopping 5’5″ tall, and is made of 3-D Rice Krispies Treats.
