For this Halloween mummy cake tutorial, you will need the following ingredients and supplies:
Vanilla pound cake
White buttercream icing
2 peppermint patties
1 tbsp cocoa powder
Candy corn shaped pan (Wilton brand)
Tip # 104
And here are the steps:
Prepare your vanilla cake in the candy corn shaped pan.
Use a spatula to frost the entire cake in white buttercream.
Stick two peppermint patties near the top of the cake for the mummy’s eyes.
Fill a piping bag with white frosting and attach Tip #104.
Hold the piping bag at a 45 degree angle and randomly start piping strips of white frosting all over the cake.
Make sure not to frost the peppermint patty eyes.
Stick eyeball candies on the peppermint patties, using some icing.
Scoop out a little bit of cocoa powder into a small strainer and lightly shake it to randomly sprinkle the cocoa powder all over the cake.
Place this mummy cake on a cake board and sprinkle some crushed Oreos and also stick some worm candies here and there.
And you are done!
Well, that’s all for today.
