Halloween Cake Ideas
Need some Halloween Cake
Ideas? If you’re hosting a party this year, chances are that you’ll want to have a
stunning cake to wow your guests. Here are some options to get your creative juices flowing.

the kitchen, a haunted house makes a perfect Halloween cake. Take one sheet cake
and frost with black or brown frosting for the base of the cake. Then, with a
second sheet cake, cut up pieces of cake to construct a “house” which is
held together on top of the base with frosting (and wooden skewers, if
necessary). Then frost the house and add windows, doors, scary pumpkins, and
spooky bats. A graveyard beside the house with creepy ghosts and spindly trees
is an added bonus.
There are lots of kid-friendly
Halloween cake ideas, like the Halloween cupcakes pictured above. Or you
can make a spider web cake with regular layer cakes. First, you cover a plain round two-layer cake in black
frosting. Then, pipe on white frosting in the shape of a spider web. In the
center of the web, create a large spider, either with frosting or with
non-edible decorations like a black pom-pom and pipe cleaners.

a cake pan in the shape that you want, get creative and look at other cake pans
that you might be able to use to achieve the shape you want. If all else fails,
just make a sheet cake and cut it into the required shape.
A fall cake with some
leaves and pumpkins like the one pictured above is also a good choice for the
Your next Halloween cake can
be as tame or as spooky as you like it. The important thing is to have fun with
it and make it a truly unique part of your celebration. When the sugar highs
wear off and the costumes have been tucked away into the closet, everyone will
remember the effort you put into making your Halloween cake special.
