Every masterpiece needs a solid foundation, and the same goes for our Eyeball Cake. Start by choosing a cake flavor that will complement your design. Whether it’s a classic chocolate or a vibrant red velvet, make sure the taste is as captivating as the appearance.

Creating the Iris

The iris is the most captivating part of the eyeball. It determines the color and adds depth to the overall design. Imagine a mesmerizing blue or a haunting green. The choice is yours. Use food coloring to achieve the desired hue and create a captivating centerpiece for your cake.

No masterpiece is complete without the finishing touches. Sprinkle some powdered sugar to create a ghostly aura or add edible glitter to make it sparkle like a mystical creature. Remember, the devil is in the details, so let your imagination guide you as you add the final elements to your Eyeball Cake.
