Crumb Coated Flying Bat Cake

This flying bat cake was made by my wife. It would be a great addition to your Halloween party or you could even make it as a birthday cake for your favorite sci-fi fan.

She used a Betty Crocker Super Moist carrot cake mix and followed the directions on the package. It was baked in a 10-inch springform pan and placed on a wire cooling rack for a couple of hours.

A thin layer of Betty Crocker Whipped Butter Cream Frosting was applied and then the cake was put into the refrigerator for about an hour. This technique is known as crumb coating and it allows you to put the main layer of frosting on the cake without having it get bits and pieces of crumbs mixed in.

After the cake was iced, she ground up some soft fudge cookies in the blender and pressed them onto the sides of the cake.

A large plastic cup was placed on top of the iced cake. When removed, the remaining white area represented the full moon. A tube of blue decorating gel was applied on top of the main layer of icing while the plastic cup was still there. The blue represented the sky.

Finally, we had bought a small bat-shaped cookie cutter from eBay last year and she used it to cut the little bats out of some large York Peppermint Patties. They were placed on the top of the cake and little dots of frosting were used for their eyes.

The finished product - a flying bat cake!
