Nothing says Halloween quite like these decorative homemade monster cakes by Bakerella. The mini cakes feature a chocolate centre coupled with detailed icing to create a series of technicolor creatures with a variety of textured fur designs and eyes. These would be great to make with kids as each child can personalize their own monster dessert.

These mini monster cakes begin with a series of chocolate cupcakes that are baked and then stacked two by two overtop of one another to create a cylinder body shape using icing. Then using a piping bag and a variety of bright colors such as neon orange, blue and green different styles are sued to create fur. Depending on how big the pipping nozzle is you can control the texture of the fur to create a variety of shaggy monsters.
