Halloween Cake Ideas - Fun and Spooky Creations
Are you seeking inspiration for Halloween cake ideas?
There are so many great ideas out there for Halloween food, from appetizers and main courses to the most anticipated desserts. And no Halloween feast is complete without a spooktacular Halloween cake to finish off the meal.
But you don't necessarily need a full meal to create a great Halloween cake. Perhaps you need a treat for the school, you might be just going to a friend's house for coffee, or you simply want to surprise the family. No matter the reason, a Halloween cake is fun, creative, and you will impress everyone with your culinary talents when you present them with your masterpiece.
Here, we will give you some great Halloween cake ideas.
Graveyard Cake: One of the most popular Halloween cake ideas is the graveyard cake. A traditional sheet cake is turned into a graveyard with chocolate frosting and cookie crumbs on top. Add ladyfingers dipped in chocolate as tombstones. If you are especially creative, you can add names and dates with white icing.
Spider Cupcakes: When making for a class, you might want to consider cupcakes. These fun little cakes are transformed into creepy spiders by adding black licorice legs, chocolate frosting with chocolate sprinkles, red hots for eyes and candy corn for fangs.
Eyeball Cake: This fun cake is made with a bundt pan. Place an empty cupcake liner in the hole to cover it up. Cover the entire cake with white icing, and add veins with red paste food coloring and a toothpick. Make the iris out of blue frosting and add some black for the pupil.
Spider's Web: This easy Halloween cake idea can be made in almost any shape or size. Use orange icing and black icing piped in an octagon shape around the cake. Drag a knife gently through the black icing to connect the 'web'. Use a toy spider for a topping.
Ghost Cupcakes: Drape white fondant over cupcakes and arrange the fondant in folds like a ghost sheet. Use black icing to draw eyes and faces on your ghosts. Kids love these fun little Halloween cakes.
Pumpkin Cake: One of the most traditional Halloween cake ideas is the pumpkin cake. Although you can use round cake pans for a pumpkin, ideally, a bundt cake pan works the best. The ridges in the bundt pan show up nicely on your frosted pumpkin cake. Use an empty ice cream cone for the stem, inserting it into the hole at the top of the cake. Cover the main cake with orange frosting, and the 'stem' with either green or brown frosting. You can add leaves cut out of green foam, and green string licorice makes nice trailing vines.
Haunted House: If you are really creative with your Halloween cake ideas, you can make a fabulous haunted house by making different sizes of layers, usually 3 is nice. Stack the layers a little uneven so that the 'house' looks tilted. Cover with chocolate frosting, adding streaks of grey here and there, or even green for 'mold'. Using a piping bag, design your door and windows. You can even use string licorice to outline if you like. Add trees and a rickety picket fence for some nice finishing touches.
Research the internet for some fabulous ideas and photos of Halloween cakes.
