This year for McKenzie’s Birthday she wanted a Monster High cake, I have very little cake decorating skills and I was able to still make an awesome cake that she loved! It was fairly easy to do, so if you have cake decorating skills like mine you will be able to make this too! I used the image here (Save it to your computer and then print it) and then use the copy part of your printer to make it fit on the size cake you are making. You can use this list of Tools for cake decorating to help you out in making sure you have the tools that will help you best when decorating a cake.
Ingredients Needed for Monster High Cake
Supplies needed for Monster High Cake
Directions for Monster High Cake
Bake your cake in a square pan, can be whatever flavor you want it to be. You can also use this Homemade cake recipe which tastes amazing! Let your cake cool.
Print your Monster High Skull and size it to what you need. Take wax paper and place it over the paper, i taped the paper on to my kitchen counter and then taped the wax paper to the counter to avoid it sliding all over the place when i was tracing with the chocolate.
Using a Double boiler melt white chocolate and put it into an icing bag, use the white chocolate to trace the shape of the face on the wax paper and fill in the parts that are white on the face. Let the white chocolate cool and then use pink chocolate and melt it over a double boiler and trace the bow and fill that part in with the melted pink chocolate.
While you are letting the chocolate harden (which takes about 20 minutes or so) make your icing, you can use store bought icing or this homemade buttercream icing and using food dye make 2 different shades of purple. You want one lighter and one darker, but the exact colors are up to you. All you need to do is add blue and red food dye to the icing and stir it until the color you want. you will want 3/4s of the icing for the purples (and will need 3/4th of that for the light and 1/4th the purple for the dark ) you are making and 1/4th the amount of icing to make black icing for the eyes, nose and outline.
Then icing your cake, making sure you put the lighter color purple on top of the cake, using a flat spatula is best for this. Then get an icing bag and the cake tip that you want to use and pipe the icing around the edge of the cake. You can use this post on how to pipe icing for how to get started, while you are not making a circle like you would on a cupcake the directions for filling the bag are great if you are doing this for the first time. You will want to use a wider opening bag tip, that has the small spikes on the end to give you the ribbon look in the icing.
Once you have piped the icing on the top of the cake and the bottom of the cake you want to place the white chocolate head shape on the cake.
Then get your black icing and a small tipped icing bag tip and outline the bow and fill in the eye holes.
Then you can use the same sized tip you did for the outlining to write whatever you want to write on it.
Then take your bright colored sprinkles and toss a few on top
and tada a Monster High cake!!
