Our unBOOlievable Halloween Cake is the ultimate centrepiece for your next Halloween party! Although this cake will steal the show, it’s really not that difficult to make. The cake itself is a two-layer mud cake, and the decorations are easy to make with the kids!
2 x mud cakes or chocolate cakes (you can make your own or buy them pre-made)
Lindt Eye Balls
Ingredients: White Lindt Chocolate Balls, Red, Black and Green Writing Icing
Directions: Make squiggly lines from a centre point of the chocolate ball. Make a small circle of icing for the iris and a black pupil.
Ingredients: Pretzels, white and milk chocolate buttons, green M&M’s and black writing icing
Directions: Melt chocolate via instructions on the packet (be careful it burns easily). Dip pretzels into the chocolate and let set. With a little melted chocolate stick M&M’s to the pretzel for eyes and add a dot of icing to each one for pupils. You can also add scary mouths with the icing as well!
Kit Kat Fingers
Ingredients: Kit Kat (we used mint swirl), almonds and icing.
Directions: Break/cut Kit Kat’s into fingers and with some icing stick some almond fingernails on! Easy!
Tim Tam Tombstones
Ingredients: Tim Tams and Writing Icing
Directions: Using the writing icing, write RIP or draw crosses onto the end of a Tim Tam. You can draw just about anything that you wish!
Cherry Ripe Gates / Gravestones
Ingredients: Cherry Ripe and Cherry Ripe Bites
Directions: Cut the end of each Cherry Ripe on an angle (make sure you cut it from different corners so you don’t end up with everything on the same angle).
Various Lollies and Candy
We used Darrell Lea BB’s Chocolate Mint and Orange Balls, Reece Mixers, Nutella & GO! and Mini Oreos.
This is where you get to let your creative side take over! Start with pouring the orange frosting over the cake. You could then add some chocolate (ice magic or similar) drips down the side. Then place the bigger pieces on the cake and layer the decorations, finishing off with the little bits and pieces!
