How to Make Halloween Cake Kabobs

October 5th, 2012 by Carla Schuit

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. The weather, sports, festivities and colors can’t be beat. Plus, two of my favorite holidays happen this time of year – Halloween and Thanksgiving.

I wanted to get a head start on what I would be doing for my fun fall festivities and what fun baked treat I could come up with. Then it hit me. What makes anything amazing even better? You put it on a stick!!!!

Fall Cake Kabobs

Cake kabobs! These were so fun and easy to make that I think anyone would love this activity, and it would be great to do with kids.

I started out by using a simple white cake mix. I then divided the batter equally into the colors I wanted. I used Wilton Icing Colors to tint the batter. For Halloween I used green, purple and black, then for fall I used orange, red and brown.

I wanted a variety of colors and shapes so I used the Harvest Whoopie Pie Pan and the Halloween Cookie Shapes Non-Stick Pan. I filled each cavity and baked for about 5-7 minutes until done.

I then took the remaining batter and smoothed it out on a jelly roll pan making sure that it was all about the same thickness. I baked this for about 7-10 minutes until a toothpick came out clean. I then used a 1 inch diameter cookie cutter and cut out small round pieces of cake.

Then I got to layering. There is no right or wrong way to do this! I used Wilton Decorator Icing in a disposable decorating bag to add some frosting between the cake layers so they will stay together and rotated between colors and shapes.

I also melted some Candy Melts® Candy by following the directions on the package in a disposable decorating bag, snipped off the tip and added fun accents to the shaped cake pieces on the kabobs. I added some Eyeballs & Eyebrows Fun Pix to give some personality to the cake kabobs.

These were so fun and easy and I really think that my friends and family are going to love these fun, festive treats this season!

    Where is the print button to print out the recipe without all the excess that is not the recipe? Very frustrating when you want the recipe and have to waste paper because you have to print all the other stuff in order to get it.
