This Witches Brew Cake was a Halloween cake I created for a cake decorating basics class I was in. I had a whole other cake planned and then got this idea one night as I lay in bed. I actually got out of bed and drew it out that night.

I used three layers of round cakes and sculpted them to the cauldron shape and the witch’s body (it’s all one piece). Then I added a cupcake for the head and base of the hat. The peak of the hat and her hands are just buttercream frosting.

The pumpkin is also a cupcake that I rounded off. It is all frosted with buttercream and then finished with various candies for her ingredients and “witches brew”.
