The Walking Dead Birthday Cake

The Walking Dead Birthday Cake

This is a 12" chocolate cake with cherry filling, iced in vanilla buttercream and covered with marshmallow fondant. The blood was quite oozy, but fun to mess around with. I do not know who to credit for the design; I found it on Pinterest with no name attached.

Keep calm and bake on.

What did you use to make the blood??

Where did you get The Walking Dead topper?

Wow! Didn’t realize it has been so long since logging in, and I see I never got notified of a questions (from 3 years ago) :(

What did I use to make the blood? It was a corn syrup “recipe” I found online. Unfortunately I can’t remember where I found it. A tip to make it look like real blood is to slowly add cocoa powder to it to give it that darker color.

As for the topper…that’s just an edible image printed and then affixed to fondant. I cut around the image and put it on the top of the cake. I did the same thing with the zombie images around the sides. All edible images on fondant.

Keep calm and bake on.
