A few weeks ago my boyfriend turned 21. For this special occasion, I decided to make him a cake that he would really like. Apparently he's not much of a cake person, but that wasn't about to stop me from making one. He loves the misfits, so I thought it would be fitting to incorporate that somehow. I'll be honest: I totally copied this idea from someone else. I can't remember who it was, otherwise I would give them credit.
I made the yellow cake from VCTOW. I found that one recipe of cupcakes = one cake pan. So I doubled the recipe so it would be a double layer cake. I added WAY too much turmeric though, and while it was cooking it looked red, and when it came out of the oven it was brownish. Then I covered it with chocolate frosting and chocolate ganache. The white was leftover frosting from my moms birthday. It was just store bought canned frosting that happened to be vegan. I printed out a picture of the skull and just freehanded the design. It was pretty easy since the design doesn't have crisp lines or anything.
Also, I baked this for as long as it said to bake the cupcakes and it came out perfect. You might find that you need to cook longer.
