This weekend I had an order for a monster cake for a "Silly Dilly" birthday party - the birthday boy, Dylan (whose nickname is Silly Dilly) was celebrating with a dress up silly party and loved the monster cake picture (by Elisa Strauss of Confetti Cakes) I had sent as an idea to his mom. They decided to just order the head since the whole monster would've been too much cake.
This cake was SO MUCH FUN to make - it employed techniques I've never used before and I LOVE getting to learn new things!! The cake was chocolate with chocolate buttercream frosting and filling. Since it was a silly party, the Dylan's mom asked me to do the letters upside down - such a great idea!
