Homemade Graveyard Birthday Cake

This Homemade Graveyard Birthday Cake was made for my son's 10th birthday party. His birthday is October 28 so he wanted a Halloween theme. I baked 2 devil's food cakes in a 12x18 pan. After the cake cooled, I iced it with 2 cans of chocolate frosting.

Then I put the fence around the outside. This was from my son's army men play set. The "hands" along the back were from the dollar store. The "dirt" is graham cracker crumbs. I used Milano cookies for tombstones and wrote RIP in black gel icing. Then I mounded some frosting and more "dirt" in front of each tombstone. The spiders were also from the dollar store.

The cake was a big hit at the party and many guests asked where it was purchased from.

I needed cakes for the Cake Walk at my daughters' school and I was totally inspired by this site. The hardest thing about making this cake was finding the Peep Ghosts. Thank you, Target!

I left out some of the more elaborate decorations that others have used, because I wanted to keep the costs down and because I had to transport this cake.

Thanks to the contributors and owners of this site! My daughters are gaga over the cake and I've gotten some nice feedback from my friends on the photo I posted on Facebook.

I made this graveyard cake for my nephew's birthday which is in October. He was having a party with some friends and wanted a "cool & scary " cake.

I baked a chocolate cake and frosted it with homemade chocolate whipped icing. I then topped it off with a haunted house that I put together(from a kit). I added a Hershey bar walkway, Milano cookie tombstones with crumbled cookie dirt, and embellished it with candy and little spiders.

It was fun to make and tasted great!

I was having a Halloween party for my kids and wanted to do a cake other than a Jack o' Lantern like I usually do.

So I did a Halloween graveyard cake. I made the headstones from fondant and the graves were cookies crumbs. The cake itself was red velvet and the kids loved it.

I made this cemetary cake for my 3 year old son. It's made with Betty Crocker's German chocolate cake mix. Small gravestone shaped Hershey chocolate candybars, some store bought spider jewels, bone hands, and icing.

All the kids loved it and it makes for a good Halloween party.
