This ghost cake was for a 2 year old's birthday party so the face needed to be "Happy"! I used a double chocolate cake recipe for this size cake pan. I used the Wilton buttercream recipe for the icing and doubled that also. The icing was colored with gel and the face of the ghost is canned chocolate icing.
The shell border along the top and bottom are tip 31, the body of the ghost was tip 27, and the ghost, and it's face were outlined and then filled in with tip 6. I also wrote with tip 6. I used Halloween sprinkles to decorate the shell border.
My daughter's birthday is 2 days before Halloween. She always wants a cake that has something to do with the holiday. Her party was basically a celebration of fall: scary stories, costumes, hayride, leaves to jump in, gorry foods and of course, a scary cake!
This Haunted Halloween Ghost Cake is just a layered cake frosted with orange tinted frosting and chocolate frosting. The large decorations are tootsie rolls. Melt one at a time in a microwave for 10-20 secs. Roll out onto waxed paper and then cut into any shape imaginable. I find tootsie rolls much more appetizing than rolled fondant (and so do the kids!!). They do have colored tootsie rolls (an idea for future cakes)!
I made this Halloween ghost cake for a party for some body I knew. I made a 10 inch square tin sponge cake from scratch, Victoria sponge recipe with jam and cream in the middle. Put green butter cream in and strawberry jam then I covered it with moulding icing.
I drew a ghost in the middle, pumpkin at the bottom, a witch on a broom and a cat at the bottom then I used an icing gun to colour in.
This Halloween Ghost Birthday Cake was my son's very 1st Halloween Birthday cake. I wanted something different and unique. It was a three tier cake with buttercream frosting because I am not fond of fondant. It turned out perfect. The small pumpkins around the cake are actuall made of fondant, so they are edible.
