Deadmau5 Birthday Cake!

Another year passes and it's time for cake! Last year I made my friend an edible VW Bug, this year I tried my hand at making her a Deadmau5 head cake. Instead of talking about the ingredients, I'm just going to present a photo essay on the design. 
Standard white cake mix with a touch of food colouring.
Three tier rainbow cake.
Six colours (bottom to top): Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, and Red.
Shaping the cake into a round semi sphere.
Adding rice krispie ears and eyes, filling in the mouth with white butter cream frosting.
Frosting the rest of Deadmau5 with butter cream.
Adding the dead eyes :)
I know the ears are too close together but I had to fit it inside the container. 
Birthday candle success!
And the birthday cake carving fun begins... 
I'm really happy with how the food colouring held up through the baking process :) 
First slice! 
Deadmau5 is very colourful on the inside. 
Trying the Rice Krispie ears.
