Snake Cupcake Cake
This quick snake cake using cupcakes was made for a six year old boy. As we were having a sausage sizzle out at Tidbinbilla to celebrate, I thought cupcakes would be easier to handle.
Vanilla and chocolate cupcakes, topped with vanilla buttercream smoothed and shaped to form the snake’s shape. I gave it a quick spray with the airbrush for some detail and added a fondant tongue and eyes.
The only thing I didn’t like about this cake was the amount of buttercream required to get the shape. I am a fan of buttercream but the ratio of buttercream to cake was almost 1:1. It’s was no biggie, we simply scraped some off the top as we were eating the cupcakes.
