Last night I slaved away on this cake (not really) for our Halloween party tonight at school. I cheated and used a cake mix but I don't feel guilty at all. I just didn't have time to produce anything from scratch. I did, however, make the frosting using this recipe:
1/2 cup butter (I used margarine)
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 cups icing sugar
4 tbsp milk (divided)
10 drops of neon green food colouring
1 drop blue food colouring
Mix together with an electric mixer and add the milk as needed for the correct consistency.
My first cake tip is: using parchment paper!! Line the bottom of your pan with it and your cake won't stick. Once it's out of the oven, flip the pan over and peel the paper off your baked goods.
|I trace the bottom of the pan and then use scissors to cut the parchment paper.|
|A crumb coat is a very thin layer of frosting over the whole cake.|
|These candies are from Bulk Barn.|
