My favorite cakes to create are the ones with a back-story. Whether it's an inside joke, a child's imagination, or family tradition - I love create what others can dream up! This opossum cake was created for my client's boyfriend who was turning 30. His family has called him "tlacuache" (spanish for "possum") since he was a little boy and his friends have all followed suit. They ordered this custom carved cake - a dead opossum with his favorite alcohol. This life-sized creature cake was stunning - while macabre - and it's life-like features actually made my client jump when she first saw it in the box!
Yes, there's even caramel sauce coming out of it's nose.
