I made this cake for Threadcakes 2011. It is based off the design Nature Reigns. It is a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. I hand carved the skull. The crown is gumpaste with sugar gems. The eggs, bird, and leaves are all gumpaste. It took around 35 hours to complete. I'm pleased with the result and I had a lot of fun making it.
