Buttercream Drip technique for a fast pour able icing , but I actually did two variations
One with hand iced buttercream and the other with pourable drip, and I have to say I think I like the drip technique on this one!
It was a much cleaner icing with rounded edges versus the square and messier look of the hand icing with buttercream
Not to mention icing these little cakes with buttercream by hand is tedious work! But either way you still have to make buttercream to hold in the jam.
Using Betty Crocker accidentally vegan vanilla frosting and some food color
It’s so easy to pour on the icing and in minutes it’s ready for decorating! *not sponsored

Rewind to the actual filling of the cakes though!
Using my white cake recipe, American buttercream and the best Blaspberry jam from Silda’s Jam!
I would recommend cutting out some thin cardboard to fit under the cakes for easier icing and moveability, especially if you are glazing the cakes on a rack with the buttercream drip technique.
Add these to the Mummy Cakes with Jammy Guts and you have yourself a real monster bash!

Notes for Success:
There is no video tutorial for these cakes but I show you the buttercream drip technique in my recent Funfetti Cake video here
Leaf green and yellow food color together makes that sickly looking green color perfect for Franken Cakes!
The white cake recipe will make approximately 10 mini cakes if you are using the same cake mold I linked below
Half recipe of American Buttercream is more than enough for the icing dam as well as for all the decorating
I used basketweave tip for the hair, petal tip for the eyebrows, small round piping tip for the mouth and scars and a larger one for the nose.
As well as a rosette tip to pipe the buttercream dam that holds in the filling
The Ateco kit listed below contains of of those tips and more.
