GHOST CAKE DIY~
+ NEED +
- Three, Six Inch Round Cakes
- White Fondant
- Black Fondant
Do you know what I love most about this cake? Is that you need ZERO fondant skills to make it! I hate working with fondant, and I’ve watched enough episodes of Cake Wars to know that I’m definitely NOT a pro. HUGE round of applause to those who have mastered the sugary taffy like substance, that’s called fondant. I’m being so serious, when I tell you making this cake is as easy as stacking three cakes, and draping fondant over the top. Keep scrolling for all the spooky details!
+ STEP ONE +
Stack three, 6 inch round cakes, with buttercream between each layer. OH, and to get the dome shape of a ghost, don’t cut off the rounded shape of the top cake.
+ STEP TWO +
While blindfolded, frost the outside of the cake. I say blindfolded haha, because you can frost as messy as you’d like to. No professional cake decorators here. The frosting is basically there to taste delicious.
+ STEP THREE +
Roll out a large piece of white fondant in a round-ish shape. Again, no need to be precise, just have fun with it. I will say that rolling it out thicker, rather than thinner, is easier to pick up when it comes time to drape.
+ STEP FOUR +
Gently pick up the fondant (don’t worry about it ripping if you kept it thick enough) and drape it over the cake. VIOLA! Ghost!
+ STEP FIVE +
Out of black fondant, cut eyes and a mouth. Apply with a bit of water to the white fondant/ghost. I made this cake first attempt, so when I say this cake is easy peasy, I mean it. How cute would this cake be as a centerpiece for a Halloween party? My daughters birthday is October 10th, and we are doing a ghost themed birthday party. So I’m super excited to make this cake again for her birthday party!
