“They’re creepy and they’re kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They’re altogether ooky,
The Addams Family.
Their house is a museum
When people come to see ’em
They really are a scream
The Addams Family"
Keeping this song in mind, I , saumya and my sister Sadhvi thought about making the spooky creepy house of the Addams Family for polka dots cakes academy caker buddies collaboration theme Sitcoms.
We clearly remembered watching the cartoon and after a little researched we found out The Addams Family was an american sitcom that aired from 1964- 1966 and had 2 seasons. It was later adapted into a cartoon and a movie in 1991.
The house that you see is all cake, weighed about 8kgs after carving and ganache.
We used about 3kgs of grey fondant to make the bricks and windows. There is a graveyard on the left side of the house and a spooky tree made with rice crispies and an owl on the right side. The fences are made of gumpaste and are delibrately broken. The windows have colored glaze made from corn syrup and vodka.
