The Coolest Cake

They Are Coming

I made the coolest cake the other day (said the baker to herself :). It had deliciously fudgy chocolate layers and chocolate buttercream filling. It tasted really good, no doubt. But that's not what made it the coolest.

It was for my friend's alien-obsessed son's birthday. While the layers and frosting were really simple (deb's recipe), I had the hardest time coming up with how to decorate a birthday cake for a boy. Then it dawned on me: aliens.

They Are Coming

And that's how this gem came about. (That alien head is was totally freehanded with a piping bag. The drawing practice is already coming in handy. :)
