This is my first transplant cake, and hopefully not my last because I had a lot of fun making it. A co-worker of mine’s brother was waiting a long time for a liver transplant. You can follow the story here. I combined his love for Calvin and Hobbes with his un-subsided sense of humor throughout the whole ordeal to celebrate both his recovery and long awaited home coming.
I used red apricot glaze to get just the right blood effect. I swear this is what my co-worker asked for. Spaceman Spiff concurs this cake is both fun and delicious.
