Cake or Death? Tattoo Inspired Cake

Cake or Death?

This cake is a 6 inch mudcake stacked almost 7 inches tall with Milkybar buttercream and Galaxy ganache. All details are handmade and edible.

I made this cake for a fellow cake making friends birthday. Her spec was to try and incorporate a tattoo theme and to include inspiration from the popular Eddie Izzard sketch ‘Cake or Death?’, tea party and skulls. I’m really pleased how it turned out and this is possibly my favourite cake I have ever made.
