This two tier cake is chocolate and vanilla with buttercream, covered in marshmallow fondant. The skulls are hand painted fondant. The flowers are a mix of fondant and gumpaste. The lace is hand piped with royal icing. To achieve the dark black color on the roses and hat, I painted them with black food coloring after drying. Parts of the cake are also brushed with bronze luster dust.
