Well, bugs huh? We came up with this idea of 1 cake, 2 boys split down the middle by an ant trail. This 9x12" double layer chocolate cake is filled with whipped cream as requested by the boy's father. The ants came to us by means of our "Hello Cupcake" book. They are made with melted chocolate for the legs, antennae and lower body then the body is filled in with smarties and/or jelly beans. Hello Cupcakes used M&M's but since we are peanut & nut free Smarties did the trick. The ant hill is made from graham cracker crumbs mixed with Oreo cookie crumbs. And Daniel's guitars are made from molded chocolate which we tinted.
Along with the ants we had spiders, centipedes and tics. All is edible. When I dropped off the cake today Daniel and Luca's aunt Paola loved it. Let's hope the boys like our bugs & guitars too.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOYS!
