A store-bought cake mix baked in a Bundt pan is the trick to a spooky Ghoulish Halloween Cake. Get your creative juices flowing by decorating your very own edible pumpkin that'll be the hit of your monster bash.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (18-1/4-ounce) package devil's food or any flavor cake mix, prepared according to package directions
  • 2 (16-ounce) containers white frosting
  • Red, yellow, and green food colors
  • 1 flat-bottom ice cream cone
  • Candy corn for garnish
  • Decorating gel for garnish

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 10-inch Bundt pan with cooking spray; pour in prepared batter.
  2. Bake 30 to 35 minutes; let cool 10 minutes. Remove from pan and invert onto platter; let cool completely.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, stir white frosting with a few drops of red and yellow food colors, until frosting reaches desired orange color. Set aside 1/4 cup orange frosting in a small bowl and add a drop of green food color to make desired brown color. Place ice cream cone upside down on waxed paper and frost with brown frosting then cover and refrigerate.
  4. Frost cooled cake with orange frosting. Create eyes, mouth, and nose with Halloween candy or decorating gel. Place frosted ice cream cone in center hole of cake at an angle for stem.


  • Use your favorite Halloween candy, licorice, or decorating gel to decorate.
  • Wash down your slices of Ghoulish Halloween Cake with mugs of hot, delicious Italian coffee!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

i find a lot of recipies i do not find on food net,i enjoy your recipies.

Mr. Fook; I enjoy your recipes and watching you on WBNG TV our of Binghanton, NY. I would prefer using this recipe substituing your "Pumpkin Layer Cake" recipe instead of the boxed cake mix. That would truly make it a "Pumpkin Cake" to remember. OH! by the way, why not add some dark raisins and a few grated carrots to the mix as well.

All recipes posted are good, i love them, thank you Mr. Food!! If i rate this, i would give five stars!!

Hi Mr Food, i like the Ghoulish Halloween Cake posted, that's OOh yummy!! It's like an inspiration for me to start preparing one for Halloween. Congrats Mr. Food!!

Dear Mr. Food, I like the recipes you put on your page. I really like it a lot when you add pictures. Thank-you for all you do! I thought you were going to say, a frosted twinky for the pumpkin cake. But, the ice-cream cone works too! Keep up the good work!! Barb.
