Bettina introduces us to her Monster Gang... a fun and eye catching cake design. They may be monsters by name, but they're a friendly bunch and will help you pick up plenty of skills along the way.
It's a perfect party cake, particularly for Halloween, although this design could be adapted to suit any number of occasions.
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to model various characters in a cartoon style as well as some advanced techniques for creating realistic features and fun decorations.  This cake is ideal for an intermediate cake designer, or a beginner looking for a new challenge, and it's a fabulous design to add to your collection.

We'd love to see your take on the Monster Gang - so make sure you share your pics with us on our Facebook page.
