For my final Halloween cake of 2020, I decided to do a striped vanilla cake with some slime. I don’t do a lot of striped cakes often but I wanted the cake to be colorful and Halloweeny! I used an Evil Genius Cake cake comb, Fancy Sprinkles “Haunted Mansion” (CAKEINSPO15 for a 15% discount on any other products), Sweet Tooth Fairy Slime Drip, Americolor colors (violet and orange), and Chefmaster neon green color. Full write-up of this cake here.
