Hey everyone,
I've been planning for a couple of years now to do a Haunted Cafe as part of our haunted house fundraiser we do for the local Scouts. This year is the year and I've been frantically "baking" these fake goods to display. Thought I would share. Primarily made of polystyrene, spakfilla (spackle), paint, expanding foam and paper mache clay.

We’ve been following your fake food posts on Facebook. The level of detail and the realism are impressive.

Those are amazing!! How did you get the icing to look so realistic? Expanding foam always looks like a blob and spackle goes flat when I try.

HR the "icing" is spackle mixed with paint to colour it. The ice-cream is also spackle. You have to use a lightweight spackle otherwise it doesn't hold its shape. I've had so much fun with this stuff. There are heaps of tutorials on youtube. Look up one in particular - ThePinkTree. Very easy to follow.
