Halloween Cake

by Melissa

I made this Halloween Cake for my nephew's 11th birthday which happened to be a Halloween theme.

This was my first attempt at making a tiered birthday cake and using fondant. I used a red velvet cake mix and filled the cake with my secret cream cheese recipe.

All the letters and cut outs were made of fondant, that I made with a recipe I found online. The grass was piped colored icing. The bugs and hand were not edible but added a nice touch. The fake blood poured over the top was corn syrup and food coloring and added a extra gross effect.

For my first go around it was not too bad and even better it tasted great and all the kids were amazed.

From the editor:

Hi Melissa,

Really nice job. That's quite the gruesome Halloween Cake.

I love corn syrup and food color. There are so many things you can use it for. It makes great blood, sauce for a pizza cake, ketchup for hot dog or hamburger cakes and much more.

Thanks for sharing your great ideas with us.
