Halloween is a fun time of the year for children. Why not let the kids help you decorate a Halloween cake? You know they would love it and it helps keep them occupied and out of trouble! I know when I was a kid I would love to help my mother bake in the kitchen. You will also be passing on some very valuable skills to your children!
- Always bake your cake the day ahead, that way it can be completely cool when you are ready to decorate.
- Use a metal spatula to ice your Halloween cake and remember to keep hot water available to dip your spatula in. This will help keep the icing from sticking to your spatula and you will be able to spread it more smoothly.
- When using fondant to cover your cake, make sure when you roll it out onto your mat. Use either a light coating of white crisco or dust your mat with some corn starch this will prevent your fondant from sticking to your mat and tearing when you try to remove it.
