Skulls are iconic (as well as a useful way of stopping up having to carry our brains round.) They have featured heavily in alternative and mainstream arts for the last few years, thanks in part of Damien Hurst and his diamond encrusted skull.
Day of the Dead skulls are a particular favourite of mine, however for this cake I have taken a more literal approach and embedded the chocolate skull into a bigger cake design.
Please meet my new friend – Mr. Grimm. His skull is chocolate, with a cake (victoria sponge) body and fondant spine. He is wrapped in a fondant cloak.
I do hope no one is squeamish as I love my skulls and have lots and lots of ideas to bring to life over the next few months.
Remember – skulls are for life, not just for Halloween!
