Danell, Patti and I made these for Max's 1st Birthday Party. Danell did an amazing job with his party. This cake is the one Max got to dive into. We copied it from online (can't remember the website) We made the horns and nose out of rice crispies instead of fondant (Danell's brilliant idea) and then covered them with frosting. I think the horns were a little big but hey he's a monster right? For the hair we put black and brown frosting into a piping bag, trying to keep them as separate as possible and then used the grass/hair tip (233.) This was a 6" spring form cake pan.
These cupcakes were so simple (I didn't have to do the printing and cutting out of all the cute pictures.) The cutouts are what made the cupcakes so cute. I love the one we used on the very top of the crown (sorry I cut it off in this picture, you can see it on the very last one.) She photoshopped Max's face on all of them. Miss Overachiever. I love it!
For this monster we used m&m's for eyes, cashews for nose and horns, and almond slices for the teeth. I used tip 12 to pipe on the swirl.
I told Danell I wanted to name my next boy Max just so I could do a party like this. It was so much fun! She had this outfit made for him, how cute is he?
