  • Fuchsia buttercream in a decorating bag

Equipment

Let’s get started!

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Whisk together flour, salt, baking soda, cocoa powder and sugar.
  3. Mix together oil, buttermilk, eggs, vanilla extract, and vinegar.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix until well incorporated. Add fuchsia food color and mix again.
  5. Pour batter into lined and sprayed quarter sheet pans and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

Time to decorate!

  1. Once cakes have cooled completely, remove them from pans. Stack the cakes, spreading fuchsia buttercream in between each layer. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  2. Use a knife and a round cake pan as a guide to round out the top half of the cake (PICTURE at 3:32). Make sure to save the extra cake and position them on the sides of the cake as ears.
  3. Use the brain cut-out template as a guide to carve room for the fondant brain. Make sure to cut only one layer deep (PICTURE at 3:44).
  4. Roll out fuchsia fondant into a long rope. Pipe fuchsia frosting into the brain cavity and fold the fuchsia rope into the cavity to look like a brain (PICTURE at 5:22).
  5. Frost the outside of the cake with green buttercream frosting.
  6. Use the zombie template as a guide to cut out dark green fondant pieces for the face (PICTURE at 4:27). Cut out yellow fondant teeth eyes, and place them on top of the green pieces.
  7. Once fondant has dried completely, arrange facial features on top of the cake.
  8. Cut jagged edges at the bottom of the cake.
  9. TaDa! You’d better eat this zombie cake before it eats you!
