So my party theme is insane asylum. I've searched high and low for a cake idea to fit my theme, and can't seem to find anything with that wow factor!
I'm not a pro by any means but do know my way around fondant and modelling chocolate.

Help!

Maybe something simple like this one? I know it's kinda vampirey... but hey, my grandma has bite scars from working in a Psychiatric Ward many years ago.
Or... maybe... a cake covered in white fondant with words written on it like....

I'd like to see a three dimensional cake that was a torso with a fondant straight jacket. On top would be a vinyl doll head like one of those make-up/hair style heads. Half of its hair would be torn out, hacked off, or shaved and the rest would be a tangled mess. It's eyes would be heavily lined or rimmed with either red or black to give a spooky, tormented look. If the doll head you found looked too smiley, I would cover the mouth with duct tape or a Hannibal type mask. Depending on the design of the doll head that you find, you may be able to either sit it on top of a platform on top of the cake, or just run a dowel straight up through the bottom of the head.

This is similar to what I had in mind but I was thinking of just making the head out of Rice Krispie treats. I've also got a brain mold but didn't really want to do jelly as the cake will be out and it would be a mess.

I think all these are great! When I think of insane asylum, I also think about lots of pills. So maybe a cake with a prescription bottle spilling out lots of sugar pills or candies that look like pills on top & spilling over the side. Maybe individual cupcakes with little pills on top too, like they'll be served to the patients. Maybe a sheetcake with a top that looks like a prescription form from a doctor. Or cupcakes with little individual straight jackets on them - cover shredded wheat cereal pieces in white chocolate melts & fondant, maybe?

Or make cupcakes with bloody (red icing) inscriptions like medical diagnosis - you'd have to have the right guest group for this if it's too un-politically correct, but "crazy", "insane", "hears voices", "psycho", etc. Then they could choose their issues! LOL!
