Frightfully Fun Halloween Frankenstein Cake Recipe: Don't Be Scared, This Monster Cake Is Easy to Make

Frankenstein will be the hit of the Halloween party when he comes in the form of a fun cake. And it’s so easy to make – really.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour
Servings: Makes 1 cake


Here’s how to make it:

  1. Bake cake according to package directions for a two-layer round cake. Cool completely.
  2. Color the tub of white frosting with green until you reach desired color.
  3. Frost the cooled cake with the green icing. (Save about 1/2 teaspoon for the nose.)
  4. Make ganache. Pour ganache over the top of the cake slowly, until it just begins to drip down the cake.
  5. Cut the marshmallow in half and stick to the cake for eyes, or use two candy melts.
  6. Using the chocolate cake decorating icing, draw on a mouth, pupils in the eyes and a few zigzags on the face.
  7. Using the reserved green icing, make a nose right under the eyes.

Easier variation: Use a tub of ready-made chocolate icing instead of the ganache. You can also use this for the mouth, pupils and zigzags.
