In honor of Halloween and a recent graduation, I had someone request a special cake for the occassion. Elphaba, from the musical Wicked….and for those of you not up to date on your books and musicals involving green witches : )….Elphaba is the Wicked Witch of the West from the stories based from the land of Oz!! Having read the book, Wicked, and wanting to see the musical, this was a treat to make a cake based upon her. And I think she came out fabulous! So did the person the cake was for!
The image of Elphaba comes from the actual musical billboard photo, in which it also usually has the image of Glinda, the White or Good Witch, on it as well….but since it was all about Elphaba, and Abraham, who was actually dressing as Elphaba for the Halloween party, Glinda was cut out of the spotlight, lol.
Everyone who’s seen her, loves her! It was such a fun cake to make and I hear all the people at the party had a wicked good time!! 🙂
