Reader Recipe: Fright Night Cake

I always find fabulous ideas while reading your recipes over on TeamSugar, but the other day something unexpected happened. I was completely and totally blown away by sarahkushner's Halloween-themed cake, which she created for a recent event.

Yes folks, that masterpiece is edible, and she made it all in the comfort of her own kitchen! Sarah's contemplating opening her own bakery, and I think it's safe to say she is well on her way! To find out how she did it or congratulate her for making such an artistic cake,

Fright Night-Night of the Living Dead Cake and Cupcake Display
Recipe submitted by reader sarahkushner

12 dozen cupcakes (only a few were displayed, the rest were given out at the bar)...
1 cake, three layers...
1 rice krispie zombie hand...
a bunch of little sugar skull faces...
decorated cake stand...
a lot of little plastic hand cupcake toppers...
plastic bugs...
a logo-ized cookie...
And a whole lot of fun.

I'm feeling pretty accomplished; it looks like my sketch. I didn't get a lot of sleep, but I was having fun. I'm really tired now... I'm going back to bed...

popularsugar- the headstones are actually very simple, its just basic sugar cookie dough with black food color mixed in, a little unevenly so that it "marbles". The grass is just coconut dyed with green and brown food color, plain green was too bright. The dirt is cookies thrown into the food processor, and theres a little sanding sugar too.

THat is truly amazing! I wouldn't want to eat it because I don't want to destroy the edible art. I would love to know the fine details that went into making the cake, like how did she create the headstones and grass?
