Whoa! Maddiebird Steps it Up a Notch in Edgewater Glen
With only 871 Elsas to hand out candy to this year, there was plenty of time for folks to take a break from their candy duties (and hot toddies) on the front porch to wolf it down.
Curious about the design process?
“So I started out mixing a ball of fondant this sort of sea-foamy green color that I’ve used before on some zombie cupcake toppers I made last year. (I can’t stand sea-foam green, so calling it “zombie flesh green” makes it more palatable for me) 😉
Then, I start molding it with my hands until I start to see the face I’d like to work with. At a certain point, I think it would be particularly disgusting if one of his eyeballs/part of his skull had been blown off, and there’s a big, bloody cavity there instead. So I make that. 😉
I have some basic tools that I use to add some texture and detail, to make it look more “realistic”. I add an eyeball and rotten teeth to help me visualize the end product and give me a bit more direction. And then, as per usual, I get so carried away, I skip a couple of steps and all of a sudden, it’s covered in “blood” and sprinkles! And then, I decide last minute that I’d like his face to look like it’s falling apart, so I knock one of the teeth out and drop his chin.
Good god, I love Halloween!!” – Michele
