A skull cake makes a wonderful treat for your next Halloween party. Fun or scary, either way your skull cake is sure to be a hit at your party. Halloween is a time for spooky fun and imagination, so take the opportunity to add this element to the snacks and food that you serve as well as in your costumes.

Skeleton Cake

Bake the cake and cut into the shape of a skeleton or buy a skeleton cake pan from your local Halloween store. Spread black frosting over the entire cake for the base. Use white frosting to add the detail of the bones and skull face. For a gruesome addition on Halloween, use fondant dyed to look like old flesh and place in various spots on the skeleton. Use a deep red icing to imitate dried blood.

Graveyard Cake

Make a graveyard scene out of cake. Start with a basic sheet cake. Decorate with green frosting to look like grass. Make gravestones out of fondant and write witty lines or historical figures on the gravestones. Use the fondant to make little skulls and put the skulls on the gravestones or make other bones out of fondant and put the bones and skulls in front of the graves. Add a tree to your graveyard made out of fondant and decorate with Halloween ornaments.

Skeleton City Cake

You can make an elaborate or simple Halloween town cake. For the simple town, use a sheet cake for the base and decorate with frosting. Use the frosting to paint the cake with a town scene, making the buildings look like haunted homes and businesses. Use the frosting to decorate skeleton people in the town. For a more elaborate cake idea, make a three-dimensional spooky house with a mould or by layering a cake cut into the shape of the house. Use frosting to decorate the house. Make the door in the shape of a skull with fondant or frosting. You can also add skeleton people to the house with fondant.

Basic Skull Cake

Make a layered skull cake by making two circle cakes. Cut the cakes into skull shapes. Make a chunky strawberry or orange filling to go between the cakes to add a gruesome factor to the cake by representing brains. Cover the cake with black frosting for the background. Use white frosting to decorate the skull face and add details to the skull. Make skull cupcakes to go with the cake by making the cupcakes, decorating with frosting, and adding skull rings from a Halloween store.
