Hulk Birthday Cake

I can't believe my oldest, Buddy, is 4 years old!  Of course, like most four-year-old boys, he loves superheroes, so this year he requested an Avengers cake.  After searching around on Pinterest, I decided that a Hulk cake would be the easiest Avenger to create in a cake design.  I know, that's not a very good reason to choose your son's birthday cake, but I justified it by telling myself that I have a 5-month-old baby, so I don't need to spend hours on a cake.

Last year, Buddy requested a Spider-man cake.  And, he's already told me that he wants a Hawkeye cake next year, and that his little brother would like an Iron Man cake for his birthday (in October).
To start I made a regular two-layer cake and coated it with bright green buttercream.  I piped on the hair and face with a writing tip using black icing.  For the teeth, I used a basketweave tip backwards, so the teeth look smooth with jagged edges.  Then I piped Hulk's eyes in green icing with a writing tip.  Super easy for how awesome it turned out!
