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!
