Happy Birthday Joan Crawford!!!

Posted by on Mar 23, 2015 in Designer Cakes | 6 comments

Three days ago, yes THREE, I got a cake request for a dead rat on a silver platter. This was a very odd request but after they told me it was for a Joan Crawford movie feature it made sense! They wanted to celebrate her birthday with the iconic scene in “What happened to Baby Jane?” of the dead rat being served on a bed of lettuce! So here he is: 2ft large and 25 pounds! The entire rat is cake!
