This Halloween birthday cake was my favorite cake to make! My daughter's birthday is a couple of days before Halloween and she wanted a Halloween party. So I used to watch the cake challenges all the time and the Halloween cakes where on. In the challenges they used hard candy so I wanted to use it.
The water is hard candy with body parts in it! The walk way is teeth. Then you have the haunted house that is the gingerbread house. It sits on the cake. Then the graveyard is cake with skeleton that looks like they are half dug up. And bugs all over it.
The kids at the party loved the fact that everything they could eat. My daughter loved her cake. This year we are trying to do a bigger and better cake than last year.
This Boo cake was for my son's 9th birthday. He had asked for a Halloween-ish cake, but I also knew his favorite avatar for his Mario games is "Boo," so I decided on this character. This was also a Vegan cake (no animal products used).
I used a 13" round for the body and sculpted the arms and tongue using a 9" round cake. I attached the arms and tongue with lollipop sticks and, after rolling the fondant icing out, I just laid it on top and molded it to the shape. I drew the face free-hand and then used black fondant icing for the eyebrows and eyes. I then painted the mouth and tongue, using red and black gel icing.
This Halloween Cake Design was made by myself for a local youth group who had organized a party for the children in the area. The ideas came from talks held by myself and the youth team. The pumpkin cake was made from two sponges baked in pudding basins and filled with butter cream dyed grey for an extra spooky effect.
The ghost on the other hand was a basic square sponge cut to shape and a muffin sized cupcake turned upside down to make the rounded shape for the head. A simple circle of icing draped over the built up sponge finished it off.
These two cakes were raffled off and I did get some great feedback after the party.
I made these Halloween cupcakes for my nephew's class & I made them two different ways, one like a little cupcake graveyard with Milano cookies as the tomb stone written with black gel frosting, gummie worms, skeleton rings & then crumbled up cookies on top like dirt then the second way was spider webs with spider rings on top.
I was not sure how the grave yard like cupcakes would go with a strict Catholic School but in the end I got no complaints & the kids loved them.
