Squid Contessa Cake Timelapse

Skill level: Newb

The Squid Contessa was created for the Sugar Spooks 2016 Collaboration and was based off the artwork of Omar Rayyan. She is made from modeling chocolate, fondant and a structure of aluminum foil and foam because I wanted to keep her forever and ever haha! I used Magic Chocolate to mold the tentacles and face and she is painted with cocoa butter.

You can purchase the skull mold from www.decoratethecake.com
