In today's free cake video tutorial, I'm going to show you how to make a funny and super easy Monster Sheet Cake!
This fun buttercream design is perfect for any skill level of cake decorating, and is great for kids' birthdays and Halloween parties!
I have never been into scary Halloween cakes, and so of course our monster today is a little on the goofy side with his crazy smile and funny teeth! One of the best things about monster (or alien) cakes is that absolutely anything goes.
You can change up the colors, add a few more eyes, change the teeth, add a nose or antenna ....the options are endless! Piping buttercream fur with my grass piping tip didn't take nearly as long as usual because I wasn't worried about making the fur a uniform length. Just shaggy, crazy, buttercream fur piped in every direction.
It goes much more quickly that way, and the texture is perfect for a funny little monster. I mean, who wouldn't love this face?
