How adorable — not to mention impressive — are these cakes? You don’t have to love manga and anime to be blown away by these cartoony characters with oversized heads, a style known as chibi. Don’t be intimidated by the top-heavy design; building their sturdy internal support is easier than you think, especially with Avalon’s step-by-step guidance. So let Avalon teach you how to make them for the little superhero or princess in your life; they’re the only two kids’ birthday cakes you’ll ever need! But if you want to get creative, this course gives you the skill set to create a template for any kind of character — a ninja, a ballerina, a pirate — and turn that into a cake too!

Quick and Easy 3D Ghost Cake

How to Make a Quick and Easy 3D Ghost Cake for #Halloween. Great #CakeDecorating project for beginners!

Today I baked a cake in my Pampered Chef 2-quart bowl and turned it into a ghost. And not by eating it.

This is actually a cake I made 15 years ago. It’s from Carol Deacon’s tutorial in the October 1999 issue of Cake Decoration magazine. Her version was shorter and wider. She has a nice selection of cake decorating books available, if you’d like to see more of her projects and designs.

The video playlist demonstrating how I made this cake is posted here:
