Scary Halloween cake

Racquel Sweeney


Hello everybody, I made this cake recently for my wee boys birthday. He wanted something to go with the Halloween party theme so this is my scary monsters face cake. One wee boy at the party said to me as I was cutting the cake don't give me the bit that has the eye on it , because I won't be able to eat it if it's looking at me ...Hilarious! hope you's like and enjoy.. :)

  • 8NOTE= this cake is a two tear cake ,so I had to make two cakes .This recipe only enough for one at a time...ON the bottom half of cake spread the chocolate butter icing on the top, place the second layer of cake on top of that. Spread the marshmallow icing all over cake with a spatula, what I used for the face was Halloween sweets (candy) eyes, nose, and mouth . Then for the eyebrows I used fruit liquorice and the hair, orange sugar pieces and a tube of red icing for the blood . There you have it my scary Halloween cake ..... :)
