This adorable neon Casper The Friendly Ghost Cake was made by Death By Dessert Studio.
Yesterday’s post featured Huckleberry Hound. In it, I mentioned that one of Huck’s most unusual appearances was in the animated Christmas Special – Casper’s First Christmas. Hanna-Barbera had made the Saturday morning cartoon – Casper and the Angels. So when they created the Christmas special, they included Yogi Bear, Boo-Boo, Huckleberry Hound, Snagglepuss, Quick Draw McGraw, and Augie Doggie and Doggie Daddy as guest stars.
Reading about this Christmas special, put me in the mood to share a bootiful Casper treat.
On this wonderful cake, Casper is standing at a gumball machine and the gumballs are passing through him and spilling are all over the floor.
I really like the bright neon colors that Sarah used. It really makes this cake stand out. Using little balls for the gumballs was a great touch because it makes the cake look 3-D.
Sarah got the idea for this cake after seeing a tattoo by Who Tattoo. The original image is from the famous cover to Casper The Friendly Ghost #165.
At the end of every post, I always point out some of my favorite posts I’ve written featuring today’s character. Surprisingly, this is the first time I’ve featured Casper The Friendly Ghost on Between The Pages. But over the years, I have had some happy haunts materialize including: The Haunted Mansion’s Hitchhiking Ghosts, matching Mickey and Minnie Mouse Ghosts, Zero, the Ghost Dog from The Nightmare Before Christmas, Slimer from Ghostbusters, Charlie Brown trick or treating in his ghost costume with too may eyes and Marvel Comics’ supernatural superhero Ghost Rider.
