I wanted something big for a friends halloween work party so why not a life size mummy. I bought the coffin from one of the halloween stores then cut a piece of wooden board to fit inside, covered it with a black plastic table cloth that I tapped down on the under side. I udes my daughter as my shape on a piece of paper then cut if I recall 15 sheet cakes to contrust the body plus 3 rounds for the head. I used 4 different flavors in all. For the eyes I got some from the candy store then hollowed them out and set in blinking lights. My cockroaches and spider were not edible but my chocolate rat was. It took 3 grown men struggling to get this into the venue.
