Here are three simple beginner tips. I love the saying "keep it simple stupid". This motto has given me a much higher success rate in life! So, let's just take a quick second and go over three basic tips to help guarantee you success in making your Halloween cake.
I am by no means a "real" baker! I have ruined so many cakes by not preparing my pans correctly! I've removed more "half" cakes from my pans than I care to mention.
If you are using a cooking spray, be sure to use one that contains flour. Give your pan a thorough covering.
If you prefer to use butter or shortening to grease your cake pan, make sure you spread your pan evenly and don't miss a spot! Then just give your pan a light coating of flour.
When mixing your cake batter, don't get impatient when following your cake recipe instructions. Add ingredients in the order they appear on the recipe. Remember to add your butter when it is at room temperature.
Cake pops are one of the neatest dessert ideas I have seen in a really long time! They are little bites of cake on a lollipop stick! Love it!
This little guy will steal the show at your party! This funny little creation is by Tramie of Tramie's Kitchen. I get a chuckle every time I look at this bewitching little fellow! I love how Tramie explains how this creation came to be!
"This little guy is actually an accidental creation... A crack had started to form, and I had to think of a way to fix it. As I absent-mindedly started to dab candy melt from a stick along the crack, I realized that I could make his eyeball look like it was falling off and melting down his face and well, that was it! I was very happy with the result and he turned out to be everyone's favorite."
This cake was made using "fondant". Fondant has been described as "edible play-dough". You can purchase a box of rolled fondant at any craft or baking store.
Using fondant takes Halloween cake decorations to a whole new level!
This cake was made using chocolate ganache for the icing. Chocolate ganache is easy to make! Here is a simple recipe:
