How fun are these Halloween Cakes to make. 

If you look close you can see that it is actually on frosted cake with four different designs to choose from.

Just pick the one you want to make and decorate and then the fun begins.

There are:

  1. Googly Eyes Cake
  2. Candy Corn Cake
  3. Bat Cake
  4. Candy Ghost Cake

You can modify these cakes in many ways. You do not have to use different colors of frosting and can add in different items to make it your unique cake.

The fun part is letting the kids decorate and make it as spooky fun as they want.
