Halloween Candy Corn Castle Cake

Happy Halloween!

6"x 4" round on top of a 10" by 4" round 

Dark chocolate butter cake and Almond Rum cake (colored orange) with vanilla butter cream icing. Everything is covered in chocolate or vanilla fondant with a brick pattern. I didn't weight the fondant or the final cake, but I'm sure it was 5-8lbs of fondant. It was a heavy cake.

Bats, ghosts are fondant. Bats are on floral wire.

Almost a whole bag of Brach's Candy Corns, Reese's Pieces and Hershey's Candy Corn
Kisses  'glued' on with royal icing and or butter cream icing.

Licorice fence 'glued' together with milk chocolate candy melts.

Coffin is chocolate candy melts colored and hand shaped, dirt is brown sugar. Grass is butter cream.






I think it came out pretty darn cute!


I was playing with backgrounds, lighting, camera settings and camera angles. I kinda like these 'get down low and point up shots'. I have a very dark living room and kitchen (we have solar shades on the house) if anyone has any lighting tips or camera setting tips I would love to hear them!




I love the door and the bats.

It took 3 days and about 15+ hours. I didn't include shopping and the hours it took to clean up my kitchen, dinning room.

leave me a comment tell me what you think!
