I created this three-tiered Beetlejuice cake for a Halloween party. My original design had the head rotating on a concealed turntable (like the graveyard scene in the movie) but as the client's budget did not allow for that, we scaled the design down to a more manageable size. The head is carved styrofoam, covered in fondant and modeling chocolate - this was to keep the overall weight down and to save having a lot of leftover cake as only 30 servings were needed. The middle tier was carrot cake and the bottom tier was chocolate with nutella buttercream.
