Hey Sunshine! It is here! The long awaited Tutorial video for the making of my Monster High Cake! I uploaded the video on Youtube a few days ago but due to a few family medical issues I have not been able to update much. Keep in mind I am NOT a professional in any way as you can clearly tell in the video. I am new to making cakes and I am just doing it as a hobby *No worries, no plans to quit my day job any time soon* LOL. This is the 2nd Cake I’ve ever made so it is NOT perfect in any way but it made a little girl very happy and that’s what counts right?! So I hope it just helps some of you for inspiration so go out and make a little girl (or boy, I don’t judge) happy!
DONT FORGET: To check out the video to learn how I made the Monster High Skull logo topper that is standing up on the top of the cake out of fondant. It is in its own separate video and you can find that Here.

*Keep in mind my website and Youtube will not be dedicated solely to cake decorating. I am a crafter of all sorts and I love to create things and work with wood, cake, clay, paint, power tools, and just anything crafty. I may post cakes or I may post DIY projects. It’s just whatever my heart desires at the point in time. I have been doing cakes more frequently and haven’t had much time to really do much DIY’s between work and cakes but I will get back to those too, so if you are here for wood projects or crafts no worries those are all to come as well.
(I just completed another cake also, I tried a few new technological things so hopefully it will help the quality of the video to be better but we will see as I have not yet reviewed the footage to see how it looks, but if all works out well hopefully I will have that video completed and uploaded in the next week or two, then I am going to try and start doing regular crafts as well again.)
This cute Monster High Skull Logo Cake Topper is made completely out of fondant. It was a struggle to try and get the fondant to harden in time, I made this topper on Monday and left it sitting out until Thursday with hopes that it would harden-to no such luck! So I read some posts online that if you leave it in the oven with just the oven light on overnight it would harden, which I tried. It did not harden completely rock solid, but it did stiffen up enough that (as long as someone didn’t try to bend it) it would hold its shape and stand up no problem!
For the template I simply googled “Monster High skull template” and picked one. You can pick in your print settings how big you want it to print out at. I think I printed mine as a 5×7 but I cant be 100% certain. To make it easy on ya I’ll provide a link to a google search with some templates HERE: https://www.google.com/search?q=monster+high+skull+template&biw=1440&bih=765&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjI4OiWh_HNAhVFzz4KHeg6BAwQ_AUIBigB
DISCLAIMER: I am in no way saying I am a professional baker or cake decorator or anything of the sort! This is only the 2nd cake I’ve ever made, So please be easy on me folks!
So I decided to separate the making of this cake and the topper into separate videos just because making the topper was its own process in its own! So go check out my You tube page and Subscribe, I am awaiting some new equipment to come in so the quality will get better and I will start uploading videos regularly. The first few video’s wont have the best quality but I assure you that will be improving very soon! Hope you enjoy watching me make this topper and I hope it helps some of you guys also. Now on to the video already!…
*Go Check out where I show you how to decorate the entire cake after this! I just recommend you do the fondant topper a few days ahead of time so it has time to dry out and harden! You can find that video here!
Enjoy & Don’t forget to stay sunny!
Hello Sunshine! This cake was made for a lovely little girl’s 7th birthday who loves monster high! The doll is optional, however my friend wanted a doll on the cake! I just thought I would share some pictures of it, I have been working on a video for it, I have yet to review the footage but if it works out I Will upload a quick video of me running through the process of making it.
Disclaimer: It’s not perfect and I am by no means a cake decorator or professional in any way, actually this is only the 2nd cake I’ve ever made, so please be a easy on me.
Stay tuned for a video on me making it. Stay sunny!
