We had our first movie night of 2014 and started off with a bang! We’ve been making our way through all the X-Men movies but in chronological order of the story line and not the the movie release dates. Can you say geek much? Lol.
In case you wondering, here is the story line order:
X-Men First Class
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
X-Men: The Last Stand
It is always easier to plan a movie night for a movie I’ve already seen and even though I hadn’t seen this for about 4 years, I still remembered it well (how can you forget Hugh Jackman running buck naked through a field?). We’ve been planning on doing this movie night series for a while and I knew that I wanted to find a way to incorporate Wolverine’s claws.
After seeming this, I decided to make a cake that had Wolverine’s claws and also looked like it had been slashed.
For the cake: I made two six inch cakes from a white cake mix, layered them and covered them with white buttercream frosting. I made the wolverine claws from folding 3 layers of duck tape in half (onto itself) and cutting the ends into the shape of his claws. I stuck the “claws” into the cake and then used a large serving fork dipped in red gel frosting to make the claw marks. I also splattered a some red gel frosting onto the cake for extra effect.
Here are the kids before we delved into the treat:
