This Halloween bundt cake is super easy to make and is a visual treat that you can customize with your favorite Halloween colors. Using a box cake mix, and food coloring, you can make a creative swirl on the inside of this cake!
Halloween Bundt Cake
The first time I made this cake was when we were entertaining my husband’s boss. He was visiting Florida with his wife and two young children and so we had four littles to feed and entertain.
It was just a week or so before Halloween and I needed a fun, festive dessert. I also didn’t have a lot of time to make a really fancy dessert. In the past we’ve made Witch hat cupcakes, and candy corn cookies, but I wanted something different.
This bundt cake wowed the kids and the parents! Here is the first time I made it. Pretty simple. Orange, black and purple frosting on this one.
- white cake mix – just a store-bought white cake mix
- eggs, vegetable oil, water – for the cake mix
- frosting – the canned frosting works really well because it thins out in the microwave and makes it easy to drizzle over the cake
Perfect Halloween Bundt Cake for a Halloween Party
This Halloween bundt cake recipe involved two cake mixes (one chocolate, one white), store bought frosting and food coloring.
I’ve recently updated the recipe to use only one cake mix. It doesn’t matter which way you go. If you have leftover batter you can make cupcakes.
How To Make a Halloween Bundt Cake
Make one white cake mix as directed on the box mix. Separate the batter into four bowls (or three if you only want three colors) of one cup each. Just pick your favorite brand.
Separate the white cake mix into four bowls, one cup each. Color one orange, one green, one black, one purple.
Bake as directed on the box, usually about 20-25 minutes. Once the cake is done, let cool 5-10 minutes and turn out onto a place. Let cool completely – about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, you can make the frosting by dividing the white frosting into thirds. Color 1/3 purple, 1/3 green, and 1/3 orange.
With sweeping motions, drizzle each color over the cake. Overlap colors and have fun with the design! Add sprinkles immediately before the frosting sets. Let the icing set and then serve.
The outside of the Halloween bundt cake looks great, but the inside is the real treat. Super cute.
- The less division of the batter, the greater the colors will appear in your final cake. I’ve made it with three, and with four. When I used four different colors, the top color barely showed.
- Add a teaspoon of vanilla to the store-bought frosting to make it taste more homemade.
- Experiment! Use different colors, use less colors, more colors.
- Add sprinkles!
