I was excited to make this cake because of two reasons: The first reason is this cake is for a girl (not too many girls order a Plants vs Zombies cake) so I had to girl it up a little. My second reason is this cake feature 2 new characters. I love it when I make something new because it challenges me. The new zombies, which were requested by Ging (Zoe’s mom), are the newspaper zombie and the pole vaulting zombie.

I hope they appreciate the level of detail I made for this two new characters. For the Newspaper zombie, I used an edible marker to draw on the fondant to make it look like the front page of a zombie newspaper. For the pole vaulting zombie, I made him look more muscular and I even added shoe laces on his training shoes.
