I had a friend ask me to make her son a graduation cake… but this is NOT your ordinary graduation cake. She wanted to make it personal, and her son keeps Madagascar hissing cockroaches as pets. So a hissing cockroach it was. Mom then asked me to make it with red velvet, you know, to make it more realistic. He also went to the local technical school for plumbing, so, a plunger appeared next to the cockroach 😉
Everyone loved it! He brought out his one of his cockroaches out to compare…they looked identical!
