Spooky Graveyard Halloween Cake

Have fun this Halloween and let the kids join in on decorating this spooky Halloween cake! Take an easy cake and decorate it into a spooky graveyard scene for your next Halloween party. This is a perfect Halloween cake decorating activity to complete with the little goblins in your family!

  • 1 boxed cake mix (any flavor), prepared in a 9x13 pan, cooked and cooled
  • 1 can chocolate frosting
  • Crushed chocolate cookies (Oreos are great!)
  • Decorative candy pens
  • Vienna Fingers cookies
  • Jumbo marshmallows
  • Jelly pumpkins
  • Gummy worms
  • Any other Halloween-themed sugar decorations

Frost the cooked and cooled cake mix with frosting of whatever color you choose. Crush your cookies either with a processor, your hands, or place it in a plastic bag and roll them over with a rolling pin. Then coat it with the crushed chocolate cookies.

Print RIP onto tops of Vienna Finger cookies with edible candy pens. Then lay them flat to dry. Gently insert bottoms of cookies throughout the cake.

Use decorative candy pens to create eyes and a mouth on each of the jumbo marshmallows to make faces for the ghosts.

Make this a fun family activity and have the kids decorate and color as many sweets as they desire. Continue creating your graveyard scene until it’s perfectly spooky!
