My Halloween Cakes
Halloween Striped Sprinkle Cake
I created this cake for a sprinkle striped cake collaboration. It was the first time baking these French Macarons. I used Christina’s Cupcakes French Macaron recipe and they turned out AMAZING. For this cake, chocolate American buttercream with black gel coloring was used. The sprinkles are “Bewitched” Halloween Jimmies by Fancy Sprinkles.
Vampire Halloween Cake
This was done for another Halloween cake collaboration on Instagram. The vampire mouth was purchased from Etsy and it was painted with Sweet Sticks Edible Art Paint. I originally envisioned a black isomalt sail but I failed miserably! I came up with the idea of doing a “black cape” isomalt and it turned out so well! The isomalt was purchased from Amazon. For this cake, I used Italian Meringue buttercream and white chocolate ganache drip colored with red Americolor gel coloring. The sprinkles are “Fangbanger” Halloween Jimmies by Fancy Sprinkles.
I did this cake for Fancy Sprinkle’s Horror Cake challenge and I must say that it was a blast making this cake! I selected The Exorcist for my cake. When I think of the cake, all I think of is that gross vomit by Linda Blair so I wanted to incorporate that in my cake! I looked for a picture of Linda Blair online and finally found one to purchase on Etsy. I went to Krogers and had the image printed. Their printer did not print fully black, so I had to color in the black areas with an edible black pen. I used Wilton black candy melt to create sprinkle barks with “Thriller” sprinkles. For the pea-green drip, I used white chocolate ganache colored with 1-2 drops of Chefmaster neon green and yellow.
