The spooky season is here once again! Little ghouls and ghosts will soon hit the neighborhoods, searching for treats and goodies to fill their bags. Family and friends will be gathered together for frightful parties, where some of the most hauntingly delightful desserts will be served.
If you're like me, this time of year is just the beginning of a 3-month long celebration with loved ones and acquaintances. What better way to enjoy the company of others than with a delicious, delightful treat? One that is not only full of flavor, but has all the look and feel of the upcoming Holiday.
Today's recipe is just that! Using our awesome Yellow White Cake mix and some of your favorite food coloring, I've created a spook-filled bundt cake, ready for any ghoulish gathering! Best of all, it's super easy to make! Grab a glass of witches brew, it's time to bake up some Halloween Swirl Cake!
3 cups Honeyville Yellow White Cake
1 1/4 cup Water
1/3 cup Vegetable Oil
1 tsp Vanilla
Green, Orange, and Purple Food Coloring
1/2 cup Butter, softened
1/3 cup Heavy Cream
1/2 tsp Vanilla
2 2/3 cup Powdered Sugar
Red Food Coloring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine yellow white cake mix, eggs, water, oil, and vanilla, and mix until batter forms.
Divide batter into 3 separate bowls, Don't worry about dividing evenly, you'll want the measurements a little off. Place a few drops of food coloring in each bowl and mix together.
In a well greased bundt pan, pour in each batter separately. You'll notice that the batter doesn't sink to the bottom or mix together, but layers perfectly on top of each other.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Remove and allow to cool completely (at least 1 hour) before removing from bundt pan.
Once cake is cooled, make your frosting by combining all frosting ingredients and mixing together with an electric hand mixer until a smooth, yet a little runny, frosting appears.
Using a frosting bag, pipe frosting across the top of your cake.
Slice and serve.
This cake is exactly what you've been wishing for this Halloween season! The exciting, spooky Halloween colors bake in the perfect swirl throughout this already moist, delicious cake. The blood-red frosting is the perfect accent on top, and gives just the right amount of sweetness to this already mouth-watering cake.
It's time for ghouls and ghost once more, and what better way to bring them out than with this spooky suprise cake!
