Halloween is a fun holiday around our house. It usually involves at least one elaborate cardboard costume for my son — this year is no different. (Follow me over on Instagram where I’ll be posting a few photos tonight.) And, I usually bake some sweet treats to mark the occasion.
This guy is getting a ton of attention on the site right now. He’s Mr. Popular. I like to call him Mr. Easy — it’s a great last-minute cake. I made this one year when my husband’s boss and his family were coming over for dinner the weekend before Halloween. I needed a dessert, but didn’t have tons of time. This was a big hit and is a real winner. Click over to see the inside (and how to make it)– it’s as cute as the outside.
And, then there’s this sweet guy. I didn’t make him for Halloween, but he’s perfect for the occasion. One year my son wanted an orange cake and this is what I came up with. He’s truly one of, if not THE, favorite cake I’ve ever made. Check out how I made him.
How ever you celebrate, I hope you have a fun and safe evening!
