A Super Easy Two-Tier Halloween Cake

A Super Easy Two-Tier Halloween Cake - an impressive cake that's super fun to make and decorate and that will wow your guests on Halloween!

 
 
Hey friends, as you can probably tell, Halloween is in full swing here on the blog. And I'm so excited to bring you yet another fun idea to help inspire your celebrations!

This Halloween cake looks quite impressive, right?! But it's a cinch to decorate and even the kids can help! I used mainly sugar paste and cookie cutters to help me decorate it. So if I can, you can too!
The idea of this cake came from working with polymer clay. My daughter is obsessed with it, as I mentioned previously here on the blog, and the techniques are pretty much the same. Sugar paste is quite a similar medium to work with as polymer clay. Basically, sugar paste is modelling clay for adults and cake decorators!

I love it that nowadays you can also buy pretty much any color or flavor (some even have natural colors and flavorings) and ready-rolled paste for covering cakes!
Covering cakes with sugar paste is not my forte. It may seem simple, but I always struggle with the thickness of the paste and rolling it to the right size...so for this cake, I was delighted to try a ready-rolled paste sold in my local craft store!

I must say, it not only cut the cake-decorating time by half, it was also easier to cover the cake, without any rips or tears in the paste!

I also used lots of cute Halloween cookie cutters and sugar paste flexible molds to help me shape and cut my sugar paste and make those cute decorations all around the cakes. This is where the kiddos can totally help! 

Check out the full DIY tutorial below!

Ingredients and materials:

  • 1x 8 inch and 1x 10 inch round cake covered in buttercream 
  • orange and black ready-rolled sugar paste to cover the cake sizes above
  • black, orange, green and white sugar paste for decorations
  • Halloween cookie cutters
  • Halloween (spider, moon, haunted house, black cat etc) sugar paste mold
  • Mini star cookie cutters
  • Edible ink black pen A small, clean food-safe paintbrush

Directions:

Bottom tier cake decorating

  • Cover the 10 inch cake with ready-rolled orange sugar paste.
  • Press the sugar paste around the cake with palm of your hands until smooth. Cut off excess sugar paste with an x-acto knife or sharp knife. Save the excess for making your decorations!
  • Using your edible ink pen, draw a spider web on the side of the cake. Make a spider out of some black sugar paste and your spider mold.
  • Cut out some stars out of white and black sugar paste. Stick both spider and stars on the side of the cake using a paintbrush a little water.
  • Use other Halloween cookie cutters to decorate the rest of the cake.

Top tier cake decorating

  • Cover the 8 inch cake (top tier) with black ready-rolled sugar paste.
  • Repeat steps 2, 5 and 6 above to decorate the top tier.
  • To make the top tier pumpkins, simply roll a piece of sugar paste into a smooth ball with the palm of your hands. Make sure it's perfectly smooth so you won't get any cracks in the next step.
  • Flatten the ball extremities a little to make a pumpkin shape. Use a sugar paste modelling tool or the back of a knife to make grooves on the side of the ball. Make two more pumpkins of different sizes.
  • Roll a very thin piece of green sugar paste. Roll the piece onto the handle of your paintbrush to form the twisted pumpkin tendrils. Roll a smaller piece to make the handle or stem.
  • Using a little water and a paintbrush to attach the stem and the tendrils on top of each pumpkin.
  • All that's left to do is place the top tier on top of the bottom tier, add the sugar pumpkins on top and decorate with more pumpkin tendrils. Ta-dah!
