From super easy to the most intricate of designs like the one above from my bakery days, first you have to decide on which cake recipe you will make as the canvas for your amazing spooky, whimsical showstopper!
My First Vegan Halloween Cake was a very easy beginners design with the best moist chocolate cake you will ever try!
Colorful buttercream and spooky spiders & eyes!
My next Halloween Cake used my recipe for Pumpkin Velvet Cake to make this
Outrageous Graveyard Cake
With some over the top decorations for a spooky graveyard theme, this cake was so much fun to make!
Check out the step by step tutorial for how I decorated this cake!
Can you please tell me where to find your “ old” chocolate buttercream recipe. I have the original Swiss buttercream recipe but need to make chocolate and not sure of the amount, ingredient measurements
Hi Jen! Since December my non vegan blog has shut down.I couldn’t keep up the cost to host it on the internet and maintain it monthly anymore
The cost to host such a huge database online was close to $400 a month with tech support monthly to keep it clean & safe and smooth.
I certainly do not (did not) make that much in adsense revenue through Youtube & Google.
That became a pretty steep price to pay for a website that had been conflicting me financially & emotionally for so many years,
so after 5 years of keeping it free & open to the public I finally decided to shut it down.
I did not keep any of the recipes for myself when I shut down the database
(which was the only place the recipes were stored)
I just did (do) not feel comfortable anymore sharing recipes laden with animal ingredients promoting the very industry I loathe
so it really didn’t make sense for me to keep them nor keep open and available such an expensive website.
I do thank you so much for your support and encouragement through the ages,
I have stunned NON Vegans with my vegan recipes, perhaps you could try to do the same?
If not, I am sure there are tons of great (if not better than mine) recipes out there for you to use!
Thanks again~ Best, Gretchen
