Let me start this post off with, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!! I know your probably wondering and although Id rather not tell, I'll tell ya anyways...I am 21 years old as of today! Yep, I can get drunkkkk! HAHA I'm SOOO joking,I actually don't drink. Anyways, just saying...YAY!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
Thanks for letting me be an excited little girl for a moment, now on to this Zombie Cake!
As I said in my previous post, I helped my Aunt-in-law with a few things for her step-kids birthday party. Zombie lovin kids that go by Zombie #1, 2, & 3. So we decided to make the cakes ourselves and make it a cake any zombie would love to eat, a cake covered with bloody body parts...yummm! LOL. These would also be good for a Halloween themed party, which is coming up, eeeek!
The body parts were NOT edible but they were cute & the kids loved em. We bought all these body parts for $1 a pack at the Dollar Tree. So for $4 we got 1 brain, 5 fingers, 5 eyeballs, and 5 ears. Gross right? haha!
1. Bake the cakes & let cool! First I baked the cakes. Just follow the instructions on the cake mix boxes. One yellow & one chocolate so each kid could have a cake and there would be cake options for people. Bought each cake mix at Save-a-lot, probably about $1 a piece if even that much. After baking the cakes I let them cool completely so they wouldn't melt the icing I put on it.
2. Icing cake & add body parts! I just used regular vanilla icing on the cakes, probably about $1 a container. Bought 1 container per cake, after icing it generously I still had a little bit left, HAD lol. I used white icing so you could see the blood and body parts real good! I just randomly threw the body parts around the cake so it looked like some kind of massacre happened there! I put body parts on one and Aunt-in-law done the other.
Zombie # 3's cake!

3. Add Blood!! okay so NOT REALLY! But I found this individual bottle of RED food coloring at save-a-lot. We just slung food coloring all over the cake and on the body parts! No particular way, just let it look all messy and crazy.
Beware this stuff does stain your fingers and it will take you all day to get it off! LOL
4. YOUR DONE! ENJOY!!!
These cakes were good and the kids went NUTS!
This would be a great cake idea for a Halloween Party also if you aren't throwing any zombie parties anytime soon haha!
