The client is always right.  Right?  So when you’re asked to make a special birthday cake don’t you always want to create something uniquely them?  So what if your client is famous?  Or better yet, INFAMOUS?

I’m sharing a delicious cake designed especially for one of my favorite horror icons:  Jason Vorhees!

So, what would Jason want in a cake if he ordered one?  For those of you who don’t know, poor little Jason was thought to have drowned as a child in Crystal Lake.  Though his body was never recovered, his mother, Pamela, was so distraught that she took her revenge on the young adult counselors of Camp Crystal Lake by picking them off, one by one.  Sadly, Pamela was decapitated by the lone survivor, Alice.

Flash forward some years, and camp counselors are getting murdered again!  But this time, it’s not Pamela.  Since Jason’s body wasn’t recovered, what if he was there to see his beloved mommy get decapitated?  Can you imagine how he must have felt to see that happen, and then to grow up in the woods, all alone?  And the worst part…NEVER HAVING A BIRTHDAY CAKE!!  Tragedy.  The poor thing had to take his mother’s decapitated head and bloody sweater to build a shrine in his shabby little shack.

Well, don’t you worry, Jason!  The Snarky Sweet Cake Chick has your back.  I know you’re drawn to the lake and I know you miss your mommy.  So I’ve baked a special Chocolate Camp Crystal Lake Mud Cake and recreated your mother’s head and sweater out of all delicious edible material!  Happy Birthday, Jason!
