Freddie Mercury Birthday cake! 🎉😎🎉 #BohemianRhapsody will be in theaters Nov 2nd and @20thCenturyFox asked me to make a cake for an event they’re having on Freddie’s Birthday today! 😍 I’ve always loved Queen and am nothing if not gaudy, so I went a little over the top… It’s a Victoria Sponge cake with a white Chocolate bust of #FreddieMercury . Everything is edible and delicious aside from the supports and the gum paste roses… which taste like sugared drywall 🎉😬🎉 @BohemianRhapsodyMovie @OfficialQueenMusic #Sponsored
If you’re a fan of McConnell’s Instagram, you’re already familiar with her painstakingly crafted desserts and her stunning photography. The series premieres on October 12th, which gives us enough time to practice our terrifying treat baking before Halloween.
