Hungry for halloween?: Cake graveyard


P1100279This  lookie-like graveyard cake was quick to make and looked pretty effective too!

It was inspired by the ghost cupcakes I tried and tested last week.

You will need:

(along with the cake ingredients)

  • Jar of chocolate spread
  • pack of biscuits
  • Thick white icing
  • Writing icing tools

How to make your own:

  1. Bake a cake, choose your own recipe, click here for a simple sponge mix.
  2. Once it’s cooked, leave it to cool for about half an hour.
  3. Spread chocolate spread on it.
  4. Cut slits in which you can slot the gravestones into.
  5. Cut biscuits in half and cover in a grey icing (i mixed black icing and a tiny bit of nutella to create a grey- like sludge)
  6. Stick the covered gravestones into the cake slits.
  7. Remember to draw stuff onto the gravestones to make them look like graves.
  8. I also made a few ghosts by covering them in white icing and drawing little faces on.
  9. Add any extra spooky designs you desire with writing icing tools

voila!

Conclusions:
P1100286

Taste: I’ll get back to you on that one- will test it on the party guests! (I’m thinking maybe icing overload though?!)

Cost: About £5. If you want to do it on the cheap, by some ready made cake mix, then all you need to add is an egg.

Looks: I thought it looked a bit sloppy, but I think it’s quite an effective halloween cake
