Pop Star: Jennifer

232-popstars-jennifer-lg

“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

  10. Hey Jennifer,

    Greetings!

  11. He is most adorable! Please,please,please tell us how you mastered the fuzzy hair.

  12. 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. ;)

  13. Jennifer,
    this looks absolutely delicious! This is amazing!
    I am also wondering how you did the hair?!?!?

    Also… any chance that you email me the receipe??

    Sweet cake-licious greetings

  14. LOVE. I am a monster and robot freak.

  15. 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.

  16. That’s so adorable!

  34. Hi Jennifer – just wanted to say thanks for the inspiration – I am planning on doing this for my 4 year old’s birthday this weekend. Wonderful!

    Lara

  35. 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

  36. 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?
    I would be very happy about it.
    Very great, i’ve to say it again and again :)

  37. ? Love this! Going to attempt to create one for my son’s first birthday! Wish me luck!!!

    Blessings,
    Jessica

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

  39. 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.

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

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

  42. 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.

  43. Found this on Pinterest. Just wonderful! And definitely in my style: http://www.etsy.com/people/creationsbyjdb

  44. What did you ue for the coloring of the icing? Just basic orange dye?

  45. I absolutely love this!! I think I’m going to use this theme next birthday! I featured it on my blog too!

    Thanks

  46. How did you make the color? it is so cool

  47. and what kind of cake

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

  49. hi jen. i really like to ask, how did you make the hair of the monster cake? It looks great! :)

  50. 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.

  51. thanks for the help. i think i would like to try that sometime. Godbless! :D

  52. I’m totally creeped out and in love with this cake you made! -The hair really makes the difference!!

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

  54. 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).

  55. How do u make it
