The skeleton below is the actual size of the skeleton on the chocolate pound cake. So, print this picture, tape it to a flat hard surface, and then place parchment paper over the top. Place about 3 ounces of white chocolate over a double broiler, let cool. Place the melted white chocolate in a bag and cut a very small slit at the end. Pipe, following the lines of the skeleton. Let dry on the parchment paper and use a spatula to release the chocolate from the parchment paper. Otherwise the chocolate pieces are more likely to break.
Now once you have this beautiful skeleton all piped out, what are you going to do with it? Well I like to use it to decorate any type of cake. It’s a little too big to put on a cupcake and even if you did you would need a really small tip and an extremely steady hand. This skeleton is the perfect size to put on pound cakes, maybe a pumpkin loaf. It turns a regular dessert into a Halloween treat that everyone will want to dig into.
This is my idea for the perfect display of this skeleton: Chocolate Pound Cake, covered in Chocolate Buttercream, topped with crushed Oreo’s (to look like dirt), then finally place the skeleton over the top and it looks like a grave. You can really have a lot of fun with this.
