Left 4 Dead
12-28-09 This is a really large brownie covered in fudge frosting decorated in honor of the Left 4 Dead video game, so I'm not so sure it really belongs here. Thanks for the candy corn inspiration from http://chiccookiekits.blogspot.com/2009/10/emotional-life-of-candy-corn.html. I found a wooden helicopter in a dollar bin at one of my favorite stores and had to hand paint it from yellow to green, and then came the details. I had to hand paint a pale green candy coating on each zombie before applying the faces and blood with a cakemate writer. The wording was Wilton candy melts that I tented zombie green. I printed out the font on my computer and placed a sheet of waxed paper above it taped to the counter top. I piped the melted candy onto the letters and let them dry. The lettering was super easy that way.
