Halloween Birthday Cake!

 One of my favorite holidays is Halloween. I decorate the inside and outside of my house. I have a ghoulish dinner for my family with all kinds of foods and sweets. And of course, the Halloween cakes.

I enjoy doing Halloween birthday cakes especially. The child's cake can be devilishly cute and the adult cake can go from formal to outrageous.

This year I had a Halloween birthday cake that I especially liked and entered it in a contest. I will have to see how I do.  I just loved the design and the simplicity of it. I hope you will too.
  1. First I lightly airbrushed the entire cake purple. 
  2. Next with an edible food marker, I sketched out the house, trees, fence and grave stones.
  3. Using black butter cream icing, I outlined the house and fence with tip 3.
  4. I gave the fence detail with black butter cream icing using tip 5.
  5. To fill in the house details I used a small basket weave tip, 67.
  6.  The grave stones are made with tip 5 and gray icing.Simply filling in the outline an flattening with your finger dipped in corn starch. 
  7. For the moon I drew out the shape and filled it in with yellow food glitter
  8. The windows were highlighted with specks of yellow food glitter.
  9. The ghost and bats were made from fondant and cut with a bat and ghost cookie cutter.
  10. The writing was done in gray butter cream and tip 3
  11. The boarder around the bottom was done in white butter cream icing using tip 21 to resemble bare trees then airbrushed with black. 
  12. To finish off the effect, I airbrushed the gate with gold paint and the rest of the highlighting was done with silver.

Keep on Baking!!! Fondly, DCRose
