I’ve been experimenting with a vanilla chocolate bundt cake for Halloween. I had to make two cakes, each time slightly altering the recipe, and I’ve concluded it still needs a little bit more tweaking. So I’ve decided not to include the recipe just yet since it’s not quite perfect in that it was just a tad too sweet. But if you need to make a bundt cake, the recipe for the chocolate marble cake I baked before would be perfect. I’ve used it to bake bundt cakes several times, and they’ve always turned out great.
Weird and creepy looking things are always apropos for Halloween. What exactly is this? It might pass for an orange tarantula, but I’m not sure.
Slicing the cake is always the best part.
The orange border is buttercream flavored with orange extract.
You get instant gratification from baking a bundt cake because frosting is just optional; the cake can stand on its own. In this case I just poured a quick chocolate icing over the cake and didn’t have to fuss with it—so simple.
Come Halloween night, the kids in the neighborhood will be going around in their costumes knocking on doors, trick or treating. The bigger kids are pretty smart, carrying large bags, all the better to hold more goodies.
It’s also a night when most channels show horror movies ranging from corny B movies to really scary ones. But whatever you do, try and bake a bundt cake, at least once this year. You might just get hooked.
