Marina let me pick a design for a cake. I chose to make Alot of Cake. Based on the post by Hyperbole and a Half (parental warning: strong language on this site) I came up with this cake:
I'm very happy about how it came out. My velvet cake recipe continues to please me and the whipped cream frosting gave it that fluffy, Muppet like quality. I cut down ice cream cones for horns and chocolate chips of various sizes became pupils for the eyes and toenails. It was a little too cute. I've had this problem before. We didn't have the heart to cut into the head. Until today.
But we avoided looking into its eyes when we finished off the face.
