I threw a Christmas themed Halloween party this year (weird, I know). This candied beast was the centerpiece of our traditional Christmas dinner spread.

The cake itself was cherry-flavored with vanilla buttercream. Decorations were done using fondant, modeling chocolate for the bone, and pineapple rings and maraschino cherries for the garnish.

The Luggage

The Luggage is a character from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series. It’s a treasure chest with legs that follows its owner around on his adventures. If an enemy tries to open the Luggage, they see a scary mouth and get eaten. But the owner and his friends can access his belongings.

This luggage is filled with vanilla cake, lavender buttercream, and chocolate ganache.

The couple sketched the cake themselves and I executed it.

Here was the sketch. When we spoke in person, we changed up some of the colors and reordered their initials (the bride comes first).

And here’s the cake!

It was a vanilla cake with vanilla Swiss Meringue Buttercream frosting and Sugar Plum jam filling.
