DIY :: Homebaked Snake Cake

Well, what do you think?

I know, that much green frosting is a little disturbing. But he's a happy snake.

The directions looked pretty easy so I upped my game a bit by following this recipe instead of going with the cake-in-a-box.

FYI - I couldn't find green frosting so I mixed food coloring into vanilla. I also couldn't find the candy for the tongue so I just cut a marshmallow in half and used more food coloring.

I'm not sure it tasted as good as it looked. The recipe was meant for a 2-layer cake. Snake directions required baking in a bundt cake pan, which took longer and I think made it a little dry. It didn't slow down the eating much though.

It was nice to have a little something that I could do for my boy to make his birthday even more special. Thanks to all who helped us celebrate Henry's birthday. Two great parties! Such a loved little boy.

Awesome! Looking at the pic of all the ingredients....I've never made a cake that called for wine in the recipe... : )

What a great party! It was fun to see the cake come together. Was a bit skeptical at first...but now have complete faith in my Ace of Cakes. What's up for the big celebrations in September? I'd like a superhero cake, please.
