Purple Octopus Cake

Posted by Jennifer at 1:08 PM
Melanie emailed and said she wanted an octopus cake for her daughter's birthday party. I saved a picture of a really cute octopus cake made by The Pink Cake Box and so we modified that design to make it unique for Adison's birthday and here's what we came up with. The octopus is made out of rice krispies and then covered in homemade marshmallow fondant. The cakes are also covered in homemade marshmallow fondant and the legs of the octopus are made out of marshmallow fondant as well. It's hard to see here but the octopus is wearing a pearl necklace with a little yellow seashell for her charm.

The flavor was a very summer appropriate flavor, Lemonberry (lemon cake layered with raspberry cream filling and raspberry buttercream). The bottom tier was a little over 5 inches tall and the top tier was about 6 inches tall, I think. During the process of making this cake, I learned a very important fact (well, not really that important...). Did you know that an octopus doesn't have tentacles? Weird, right? I had no idea! Anyway, Melanie said the party guests and especially Adison loved the cake. Music to my ears :)
