Learn to make an easy eyeball cake in this step-by-step tutorial. Great for serving at Halloween parties or make mini eyeball cakes as party favors.
I finally made an eyeball cake, in light of the fact that Halloween is LESS than a week away now…. YIPPEEE!
Making this cake has been on my “TO DO” list for ages!
Every year, I think of making it BUT some other idea pops into my head and this eyeball cake just takes a back seat.
Well…NOT this year!
I finally rolled up my sleeves and got to work..YAY!
I THOUGHT it was going to be hard to make and take me hours to complete.
But it turned out to be surprisingly EASY and took me LESS than an hour to decorate!
It might have taken me less time because I made a mini eyeball cake but you can make a big one too, using the same instructions.
Btw, my little one was TERRIFIED of this cake.
I have never heard him say “NO” to eating cake…lol.
But, he REFUSED to eat this one and was ready to piss his diapers, every time I offered him a slice…lol.
Poor little cutie! heheh.
After I made the cake, I placed it on a small dish, filled with seedless strawberry jam to make it look like BLOOD.
But, the jam WASN’T very red.
So, I mixed in some red gel coloring and problem SOLVED!
It looks so CREEPY…. right?!
Initially, I WASN’T gonna draw any veins on the eyeballs.
But, when I stepped back to look at it, the eyeball DIDN’T look creepy enough.
And come on! This cake is for Halloween…it needs to be CREEPY!
So, I drew these random veins all around the eyeball with red and black edible markers.
The end result was SPOOK-TACULAR!
To make this cake, you will need the following supplies:
Dome cake (Pink velvet cake)
Seedless red strawberry jam
Red gel coloring
White marshmallow fondant
Light blue marshmallow fondant
Black marshmallow fondant
Black edible marker
Red edible marker
Small circle cutter
Big circle butter
And here are the steps:
Roll out white fondant.
Cover your dome cake with buttercream icing.
Then, cover it in white fondant.
Cut off excess fondant around the cake with a pizza cutter.
Roll out light blue fondant.
Cut out a big circle piece.
Brush some water on the side of the cake.
And stick the blue circular piece here.
Roll out black fondant.
And cut out a small circle piece (I used a small decorating tip because that was the perfect size).
Brush some water in the center of the blue circular piece.
Stick the black circular piece here.
Use a red edible marker to draw random veins on the white portion of the eyeball.
Use a black edible marker to draw random veins on the blue portion of the eyeball.
Finally, mix some red gel coloring into seedless strawberry jam until it becomes bright red, like blood.
Spread it randomly on a small dish.
Place your eyeball cake in the center.
And you are done!
