Easy Halloween Scene Cake
This EASY HALLOWEEN SCENE CAKE is so very easy to put together. Just a few candies & jimmies and you’re all set. No decoration skills required!
Welcome to Day 6 of #HalloweenTreatsWeek – the final day! I’ve teamed up with a great group of sponsors & they sent some free goodies to make this week of recipes happened. As always, all opinions & general chit chat is all 100% me.
I hope that you all have enjoyed all the new & easy Halloween recipes that I have shared this week in conjunction with #HalloweenTreatsWeek (and the giveaways that have been at the bottom of each post!). Today, I am sharing a Halloween Scene Cake with you that’s so simple to make. Complete with a graveyard, a pumpkin patch, some ghosts, & complete with a Reeces Pieces sidewalk lined with candy corn.
To make this cake, you can use any flavor cake that you want. I used a boxed mix to make a devils food cake & then I frosted it with homemade chocolate frosting. You could use store-bought frosting too if you wanted. Personally, I can do a boxed cake mix all day long but I’m not too fond of the pre-made frostings. The flavor really can’t be beat. This chocolate frosting recipe is one of my favorites. I made the gravestones for this cake with Wilton gravestone candy molds. You can find them at all sorts of places such as Michaels, Walmart, & Amazon. I sprayed them with nonstick cooking spray & then poured melted vanilla almond bark inside the mold. I put it in the fridge until the graves were set & just popped them out. For the ghosts, they are just Peep ghosts with toothpicks stuck in their underside to hold them on the cake. And then their’s obviously Reeses pieces on the sidewalk lined with candy corn. I a couple little ghosts holding candy corn on each end of the sidewalk (those came from Wilton as well) as a finishing touch. You could also make a sprinkle sidewalk too if you wanted, that would look really cute. TreatStreet carries a nice selection if you want to go that route. I placed the graves on one side of the candy sidewalk with a few ghosts, & then placed candy pumpkins on the other side of it with a couple Peep ghosts for added effect. The whole cake, from baking to decorating, barely took any time at all – and I think it turned out really cute.
