Clowns! *shudder*

So, this week in class we were making clown cakes. Clowns. Like this guy…

And this guy isn’t so bad. But the photos of the example cake, well, they were kinda creepy. And you know what, if I have to make a creepy-ass clown cake then I’m gonna go ALL OUT.

It says “Can’t sleep, Clowns will eat me!” And, may I just say, it’s pretty wilton cake class clown evil mochamuch impossible to get really black icing {red is no cake walk either…ha ha, cake walk, see what I did there?}. But, whatever. I still had fun in class, even if my colors were a bit disappointing. Did you notice the angry eyebrows? I added those myself with black nail polish, for that extra evil clown touch. I also piped a “666” on his back in red icing.
I feel this cake is more or less mediocre. And I’m OK with that. It was good practice and, more importantly, it is DELICIOUS. It’s a mocha cake with whipped espresso filling. OH MY GOD THE FILLING IS SO DELICIOUS! And it’s super easy to make. Here’s my recipe {which I created by improvising on a recipe I found online for a Kahlua filling because I didn’t have any Kahlua}.
Whipped Espresso Filling
aka

That is the most amazing food coloring I have ever used. When you squeeze in a little of the black you actually get black icing. Oh and they come in little squeeze bottles so no more tooth picking out globs of gel. I highly recommend that set of colors. They are fabulous!

This post has me all sorts of laughing. Dude, the 666 on the back (where's the picture of THIS) is the most creative part of this scary ass clown cake!! The eyebrows, ummmmm fabulous! The black icing..... yuuuummmm!
