Homemade Cemetery Worker Birthday Cake

This Cemetery Worker Birthday Cake I made for a co-worker's birthday at the cemetery that I was working at. I used the butter cream icing recipe from the Wilton website. I also used the butter cake recipe from their website.

I made all of the decorations on the cake out of fondant. The only thing non edible was the sucker sticks that I used to keep the parts in place. I used candy markers to write on the cake. The rocks around the border were chocolate and I didn't make those. I purchased them last minute because they were perfect and I couldn't see spending the time making them for the price.

The man buried in paperwork was my version of a caricature of the real guy. The shovel says "we dig you" and the monument says "Happy Birthday Dan". The cake went over well and brought a lot of laughs.

Coolest Halloween Graveyard Cake 34

Homemade Halloween Graveyard Cake

Homemade Halloween Graveyard Cake

I baked this Homemade Halloween Graveyard Cake with a Graveyard theme for a Halloween Party. For the icing, I used homemade buttercream icing tinted dark blue for the sky part, then dark green (achieved by adding some black and green Wilton icing color for the actual grass part).

I used my homemade marshmallow fondant and cut out the moon, then I cut out the witch and cat using my own sketch to go by. For the spooky tree, I tinted buttercream with Wilton black icing gel (you have to use the whole jar in order to achieve the dark black color). I piped out the tree, fence, cemetery gate and spiderweb.

I made the spider, bats, pumpkins, coffin, hand, skeleton and pumpkin vine from marshmallow fondant, using orange and green Wilton icing gel. I finished the cake by piping the boarder with the remainder of the black icing using a star tip.

Coolest Spooky Graveyard Cake 23

Homemade Spooky Graveyard Cake

Homemade Spooky Graveyard Cake

We made this Spooky Graveyard Cake for my 10 year old's Halloween themed birthday party. The cake is made from 2 chocolate cake mixes in a 12X18 pan. Frosting is chocolate fudge. We used Milano cookies for tomb stones and wrote on them with glittery black gel icing.

The fence is from my son's army men play set and the hands along the back of the cake were a Dollar Store find. For the "dirt" we used crushed graham cracker crumbs. We added a few more Dollar store plastic spiders and we had a really cool graveyard cake.

We put more plastic rats, spiders, centipedes and snakes around the cake to help dress up the table. We also served "finger" cookies and witched brew punch complete with a floating hand.

I would say that the party was a success!

This Homemade Graveyard Birthday Cake Design was for my niece’s sweet 16 birthday. She wanted a grave yard cake. I made homemade marshmallow fondant to cover the cake. I made butter cream icing to decorate. I used gum paste and fondant combination to mold each piece by hand. The pieces were painted with an air gun.

I put the leaves of the flowers around tooth picks so it would fit into the cake. The sides of the cake I used extra fondant to make it look like rocks on the side of the cake. The idea was for the cake to look like the grave yard was coming out of the ground. I used plastic pipe to make the tree with wire then I warped it with gum past and fondant mixture.
