Halloween Cakes Inspiration
Striped Halloween Cake
For my final Halloween cake of 2020, I decided to do a striped 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. I will have a full write up of this cake by next Halloween!
Blackout Chocolate Cake
I Put Spell On You Cake
I’m loving the color scheme with gorgeous purple, lime and black! Halloween cakes do not have to have the traditional colors to be creative.
Jack O’ Lantern Cake
I love this simple pumpkin cake design because it’s fairly doable for a beginner/intermediate baker using fondant, stencil for buttercream, or sugar sheet cut by a Cricut. Head over to her blog for more great tutorials.
