A Festive Halloween Dessert Recipe

I am all about cute food…Especially when all it really involves is a cake and dumping a bunch of candy on top.

I know…

But cute food that can be made fairly quickly is a win, don’t you think?

The steps are simple…you can use a boxed cake mix, if you’d like…and you can get rid of any extra candy you might have laying around.

Halloween Candy Cake With Buttercream Frosting

All you have to do is bake a cake and frosted it with yummy orange frosting. Like I said, use a boxed mix if you wish (I used this Confetti Cake Recipe that I love), but DO NOT use canned frosting. Friends…if I can call you friends…please oh please ditch the can o’ frosting. Homemade buttercream is FANTASTICALLY easy and infinity times more delicious.

I teamed up with my friends over at Challenge Butter and created a super simple buttercream frosting that will make your cake a huge success. Pinky swear. Plus Challenge Butter is completely natural..nothing synthetic and hormone free, so it’s a win-win.

Tips on Making a Candy Cake:

You’ll need some orange food coloring so it looks pumpkiny. And don’t worry so much about making your frosting look perfect…you’re going to be dumping a whole loot of candy up on there.

I mean, everyone has extra candy…right?

Simply arrange the candy on top and around the edges so it looks cute.

Oh and color a bit of your frosting black and using a piping bag (or a ziptop bag with the corner cut off) and pipe on a simple jack o lantern face.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

      You can find it at the supermarket.. from my understanding it’s not available on the East Coast and in some Southern States yet 🙁 But you could certainly use any butter you like.
