Total Time 2 hours 2 minutes

Prep Time 1 hours 0 minutes

Cook Time 32 minutes

Yield 1 cake

Number Of Ingredients 16

1 (18.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix (such as Duncan Hines®)
1 cup water
3 large eggs
? cup vegetable oil
24 fudge stick cookies
4 black licorice whips, or as needed
1 (16 ounce) container dark fudge frosting (such as Pillsbury®)
¼ cup chocolate-covered raisins
2 tablespoons toffee chips
2 tablespoons shredded coconut
4 drops green food coloring
12 candy pumpkins
3 oval butter sandwich cookies with chocolate filling (eg Pepperidge Farm Milano)
1 (.68 oz. tube) black decorating gel
¼ cup chocolate cookie crumbs
1 marshmallow ghost (such as Peeps®)

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a disposable foil pan with a domed plastic lid.
  • Beat cake mix with water, eggs, and oil in a large bowl using an electric mixer until no dry spots remain. Increase speed to medium; blend well. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 32 to 36 minutes. Let cool completely, at least 30 minutes.
  • Frost the cooled cake with frosting.
  • Push fudge sticks upright about 1/2-inch apart into 3 outer edges of the cake to represent fence posts. Place additional fudge sticks about 1/2-inch apart in a diagonal line across the cake starting at the fourth corner to create a small area outside the graveyard. Weave licorice whips through the fence posts for crosspieces. Connect 2 parallel sticks with a third diagonal one and attach with frosting to make a gate.
  • Make a winding path from the gate to the far edge of the cake with 2 parallel lines of chocolate covered raisins as boulders. Fill the path with toffee chip for rocks. Assemble a licorice whip tree; insert in the middle of the path in the far corner of the graveyard.
  • Mix coconut with green food coloring in a small bowl until thoroughly dyed. Arrange outside the gate into a lawn. Pile a mound of candy pumpkins in 1 corner of the graveyard and a few on the grass.
  • Write spooky phrases on the upper thirds of the oval cookies with black decorator gel icing such as 'RIP" with a skull and crossbones, "Yul B. Next," or "Here Lies ---." Stick cookie gravestones carefully into the cake. Scatter cookie crumbs all over the graveyard to represent dirt; stack any extra crumbs into a dirt pile in front of a gravestone. Place a marshmallow ghost at the fence, peeking out from between two posts.

SPOOKTACULAR HALLOWEEN GRAVEYARD CAKE RECIPE - FOOD.COM

This is a great cake, perfect for Halloween parties, that is a take-off of the stand-by graveyard pudding. I noticed pudding is less popular than cake, and of course, cake is more suited for parties, especially those with kids. You can use your choice of cake flavor, but pay attention to the cookie crumbs you use in that case so they are compatible flavors. You also probably wouldn't want to use chocolate icing with a pumpkin cake, but if you wanted a pumpkin frosting, that would be good, or else use vanilla.You can use whipped cream to make the ghosties, but be aware that if you do this, the cake needs to remain chilled, and the whipped cream does try to sag and run after awhile (so don't do that too far in advance). The marshmallow ghosties are more durable at room temp. Those are often sold near displays of halloween candy, not necessarily by the bags of marshmallows.

Total Time 50 minutes

Prep Time 15 minutes

Cook Time 35 minutes

Yield 1 decorated cake, 8-12 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 12

1 (18 1/4 ounce) package cake mix (I used Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Devil's Food)
1 1/3 cups water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
10 ounces nabisco Oreo cookies, crushed (may use gingersnap crumbs if it goes with your cake)
6 -10 pepperidge farm milano cookies (or suitable oval shaped butter cookies)
1 1/2-2 cups prepared vanilla frosting (or other suitable flavor)
1 -4 package cake decorating gel (green, black, orange or brown, etc, as needed)
1 cup candy corn (or pumpkin-shaped candy)
1/4 cup harvest colored sprinkles or 1/4 cup colored crystal sugar (orange, green, yellow, etc)
6 -12 laboratory decorative candies (chocolate candy foil-wrapped like eyeballs, ears, lips, body parts, etc) (optional)
4 -6 ghost-shaped peeps marshmallows (may also use cats or pumpkins)

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Mix together cake mix, water, oil, and eggs according to package directions.
  • If your package requires different ingredients to make cake, follow those instructions instead.
  • Grease and flour a glass 13x9-inch cake pan.
  • If you use a dark or coated pan, do your baking at 325°F.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and bake in a preheated oven for approx 35 minutes (38-40 minutes for dark or coated pans) or until cake is done.
  • Allow cake to cool in the pan.
  • Spread frosting evenly on cooled cake.
  • Sprinkle frosting with crumbled cookies (oreos or whatever you are using).
  • Using gel frostings, write sayings on 1/2 of the milano cookies (some sayings might be"Justin Tyme","Yul B Next","RIP","M T Tomb","Will B Back","Barry M Deep", etc).
  • Press 1/2 of cookie down into cake and icing to resemble a standing tombstone.
  • Arrange ghost marshmallows in a standing position on top of cake.
  • Scatter candies and/or sprinkles or sugars on cake to garnish.

GRAVEYARD CAKE RECIPE | MYRECIPES
Halloween desserts definitely call for having a little extra fun in the kitchen. This kinda-cute, kinda-creepy Graveyard Cake is easy to make, fun to decorate (so recruit the kids’ help), and is sure to be a perfectly spooky centerpiece for any Halloween dessert table. Black icing transforms store-bought cookies into perfectly-sized miniature headstones for the chocolate-frosted graveyard cake. And once you’ve placed your headstones, crumble chocolate wafer cookies around each to create “dirt.” Just be sure to make each "gravesite" the serving size you want to ensure easy slicing. Disperse a few candle “lanterns” throughout the chocolaty graveyard and you have the perfect cake for a Halloween birthday party. The classic chocolate cake recipe here is decadent and moist standby, but if you’re in a pinch for time, feel free to use your favorite boxed cake mix instead. Obviously, it’s all about the decorating on for this Halloween-inspired treat.
