This Halloween cake was made for my 8 year old's birthday party. I used two 8" rounds and one 6" round pan to "round" the entire cake. As for the stem at the top of the cake I used the bottom of a cupcake. I probably could have shaved a little more off the sides of the cupcake for a more realistic looking stem but I did not want to sacrifice the size fearing an unbalanced pumpkin.
Fondant was used on the entire cake, and an orange store bought color spray was applied. I used food coloring to dye the fondant for the face and leaves. I started making this cake 3 days prior to unveiling it. I was amazed at how well the fondant preserved the moisture of the cake!
I used two circle pans and baked two of each size, to make a double layer for each. I covered the top and bottom tier with butter cream icing and then rolled out the homemade marshmallow fondant into circles to cover each tier. The fondant was dyed with red Wilton coloring, and lots of it! Red is the hardest to get dark. All the details are hand made with fondant dyed black. the borders on the top and bottom tiers are handmade rocks out of fondant. The cake was topped with a scary hand shaped candle, not edible. All products used were by Wilton and box mixes for the cake.
I created this Halloween Birthday Cake using 12", 8" and 6" round pans. It was designed for my grand-daughters 12th birthday party. I used dividers with poles that I stuffed with black ribbon. I used rolled fondant colored black to cover the divider plates. For the top and middle plates, I let the fondant hang over like a tablecloth.
The tombstones I made from white chocolate. The spiders, webs and bats were made from royal icing (I made them about a week ahead of time to allow for drying). The topper I purchased at a decorating store, once lit with a candle it added to the ambiance.
I had so much fun making this 3 tier Halloween birthday cake. The pumpkin bottom is a chocolate 10 inch double layer with orange butter cream frosting. The face was cut out from black fondant.
The middle Frankenstein layer is a 8 inch chocolate double layer and the face and hair is also cut from black fondant. The top layer was baked in a small glass bowl that is 4 inches in diameter. It is chocolate covered in black butter cream frosting piped out with a large star tip. The legs are black liquorish cut into and stuck into to sides. The ghost is made of white fondant.
This Halloween Birthday Cake is a butter and chocolate 5 layers cake with raspberry filling and butter cream icing covered in home made fondant. The mouse and candy corn are fondant, everything is edible except the spiders.
I just stacked two 8 inch square cakes side by side with a cupcake on top for the ghost and just draped fondant over it letting it lay how it wants. I made this cake for my sister in law's birthday that falls the day before Halloween, and she loves that holiday.
I made this Halloween Birthday Cake for my boss's son. It was a lot of fun straying away from the typical birthday cake. I hope to make a bigger, "grosser" cake this year. So glad I know someone with a Halloween birthday!
