New Hampshire's Graveyard Cake

Melanie Campbell


Happy Halloween

I made this cake for my son's Halloween party when he was 6yrs. old. And it was the greatest ever. I used little shortbread cookies for the tombstones and candycorn pumpkins throughout the whole graveyard. It was the easiest cake ever but after I started working with it I found that I couldn't stop adding stuff to it. Great cake lots of fun!!!

With creepy crawly bugs and frightfully delicious graves set upon a frosted final resting place, this devilishly moist cake will be the "life" of the party. So spooktacular, this sweet cemetery will have everyone digging for more!

How to Make New Hampshire's Graveyard Cake


  1. PREPARE cake mix according to package directions using one 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Cool completely in pan. Invert cake onto serving platter. Frost cake, using a little more frosting than usual on top ("tombstones" will be pushed into frosting).
  2. WRITE spooky words such as "RIP" or "BOO" on Crunch bars using tube icing. Let sit for a few minutes to dry.
  3. PRESS Crunch bars into cake to create "tombstones". Sprinkle chopped Butterfinger Crisp bar next to tombstones to create "dirt". Creatively place gummy bugs over top of cake.
