Fun with Frosting Friday…Jack-o-Lantern Cake

Hello hello, happy friday & Happy Halloween!  Today I’m posting another Halloween jack-o-lantern cake I did a number of years ago.  It was easy to make & tasty to eat!


How I made the cake:

  • Make a cake (chocolate or vanilla) in a large round pan, bake, cool
  • While the cake is baking, mix about 1.5 cups white/vanilla frosting with orange food coloring in a bowl and 1/2 a cup of frosting with black food coloring in a separate bowl (can also use black frosting in a tube, instead- much easier!)
  • Once the cake has cooled, slather the orange frosting over the cake
  • With black frosting (either in the tube or the frosting put into decorating bags), decorate the cake with your own creative jack-o-lantern
  • Add the stem with either frosting, 4 Tootsie rolls or a sliced frosted cupcake

Cake I want to make:

This next cake was emailed to me by a good friend of mine, who came across it on another blog & I think it is just too awesome…talk about creative!


Surprise- it’s a lantern inside!!  How cool is that?!
