Finding Halloween Cake Pops

With Halloween party guests are enjoying the festivities at home, you must make them feel welcome by serving them Halloween cake pops. You can find Halloween cake pops at local grocery stores, bakery shops, or party stores. They are also available online. Whether you wish to attempt a spooky pumpkin, ghost, or vampire, you’ve got plenty of cake ideas for the big day. All the cakes are easily adapted to suit those attending the Halloween party and those who want to have fun at the party.

An eyeball cake is a fun Halloween treat that is served at most cookouts during the summer season. It is around a cake-like treat with two black eyes peering from the top. To create this type of Halloween cake, you need to have an already made eyeball cake. You could either buy one at a store or, if you are crafty, create it yourself from a regular sheet cake. You can use a regular cake as the base and then fill it with fruit, cheeses, candies, spiders, pumpkins, and whatever else you would like.

Gather A Large Sheet Cake

To make this sort of Halloween cake, you will need to gather a large sheet cake. Use the smaller rectangular shaped ones as your base. Use the larger sheets as the frosting. You will then use the eyes, black licorice, and marshmallows to fill up the rest of the cake. Use a marshmallow paper lining for the corners to keep your kids from having a black eyeball that comes out looking like a ghost!

Make Icing Scary

For a super-scary Halloween cake, you could make the icing scary with a lot of black licorice powder. Then put the top layer of cake on top of this licorice-coated icing. You will put the orange, candy pumpkins, and any other decorations you have on the cake after this. If you want your children not to know you are making a Halloween cake, they can eat the icing. Then, put a scare twist on the bottom of the cake by using some dried fruit pieces as the bottom.

If you are trying to think of cupcakes as better than traditional rectangular shaped cakes, you should also consider Halloween cupcake ideas. These cupcakes are usually smaller than regular-sized cupcakes, but they still pack a punch when it comes to flavor. You can find lots of cupcake recipes online, or you can make your own special Halloween cupcakes by using some specially shaped cake mix that will give them a spooky shape.
