"Bad A**" Iron Maiden Cake

reference photo

I got the challenge to do an Iron Maiden cake. I was given a reference image of this skeletal guy and told he is called Freddy. This was sort of challenging, but I I sculpted the face out of white fondant and then painted on it with food coloring mixed with vodka (the alcohol evaporates immediately). The hair is all fondant from an extruder (gotta get a better one of those some day). I had the husband use his man muscles to squeeze out all that hair, it was tough! Once it was placed on the cake with a bit of water I touched it up with some brown for added dimension. Rock on!
