Pop Star: Jennifer


“I wanted to thank you for all the wonderful ideas you share on your blog! My kids wanted a monster party, and while I thought making a whole bunch of monster decorated cake pops would be a bit much for my first attempt, we decided to “start small”. We made chocolate fudge cake balls and coated them with the vanilla candy coating to look like eyeballs then stuck them into his monster head cake.” – Jennifer

This is amazing! I’d like to know how to you did the hair too. I have a multi-opening tip, but I don’t think I could ever get my frosting to look like this. Great job!

Hey Jennifer,
this is a really AWESOME cake! I was trying to find a fun cake for my nephews 4th bday, and this would be wonderful. Any chance of you sharing the receipe with me / us? Especially what you are using for the hair (coating & tip).

This is amazing! What a cool mom to make such a cake! Perfect color and man, look at that hair! I agree, Jennifer — please let us know how you did it. I almost hate that it had to be cut up. But I’m sure it was delish. ;)

LOVE. I am a monster and robot freak.

Jennifer said...

Thanks for the love ladies!
I used the No 233 Multiptip from Wilton for the fur. I just started about an 1 or 2 above the bottom of the cake, stuck the tip against the cake and then gently pull away as you squeeze the pastry bag. It will break off the strings of frosting. You might need to experiment a bit first to see how long of strings you get. I’m sure it depends on humidity, heat, and the frosting recipe. I just used the good old “buttercream” recipe from Wilton.
You can check out more pics from the monster party on my blog.

This is AWESOME! My daughter is a HUGE, I mean HUGE Monster fan. She has this dancing Frankenstein doll that she takes every where. And her favorite movie is Monster Mink (Inc.) And her birthday is right around Halloween, and this year this cake has convinced me to have a Monster Theme party. Not very girly, but I think she would LOVE IT!! Thanks for the idea!

What a great idea! Your cake looks absolutely wonderful…I can imagine kids loving this one. I will have to make one myself. Thank you for sharing this great idea.
For all the previous comments aking about the “fur”, I think I would use a garlic press ;) simply press out a small ball of fondant throug a garlic press and there you have a bundle of hair..
lol, viki

Hello Jennifer,
This cake is the cutest one i’ve ever seen!
I asked myself if there’s any chance that you can send me the recipe in an e-mail?

How did you do the mouth? Is that fondant or frosting? Also, did you do the mouth before the fur or after? Great cake!

March 21, 2012 05:45 PM
Jen_Adkins said...

The mouth is actually made from candy chocolate. I melted the discs (like for Easter candies), then shaped a mouth first out of the black and once it hardened put the tongue over top. I formed it on the edge of a tub (cottage cheese, I think) that was approximately the same diameter as the cake. That way it fit onto the fresh frosted fur without breaking or needing to be reshaped.

how did you make the eyes for the monster cake?! i love them

April 1, 2012 11:47 PM
Krystal said...

Did you use a 8 inch or 10 inch pan for the cake?

April 2, 2012 05:31 PM
Jen_Adkins said...

I used 8 inch pans (three layers) for the cake. The eyes were made from cake pops, dipped first in white chocolate, then the orange, then a black chocolate for a pupil.

and what kind of cake

September 20, 2012 05:59 PM
Jen_Adkins said...

I made the orange with the gel colorant from Wilton (with the frosting supplies). It let me get that deep saturated orange.

do you remember how many cups of buttercream frosting you used?

June 23, 2013 01:06 PM
Jen_Adkins said...

Juliet, I don’t remember specifically how many cups of buttercream, but I do know it was whatever the amount made by one recipe of the WIlton buttercream (standard on the shaped cake pans).
