Halloween food ideas are a popular topic this season. If you want a fun dessert idea for your Halloween party, try this amazing Halloween Rainbow Party Bundt Cake Recipe. Orange, Purple, Black and chocolate all mix together into a fun, spooky dessert everyone will remember. They’ll think you really fussed, but it’s so easy and simple to make.

I made a video to show you how simple this is and I couldn’t resist getting into one of my costumes for the fun of it. You’ll find the full recipe below my video. When you watch the video, be sure to click through to YouTube and subscribe to my channel and comment on the video!

Ingredients

  • 1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix
  • Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
  • 1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® Dark Chocolate cake mix
  • Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
  • Black food coloring
  • Purple food coloring
  • Orange food coloring
  • 1 (12 oz) can Betty Crocker® Whipped Fluffy White Frosting

Directions:

Heat oven to 325°F. Generously grease a 12-cup tube cake pan. Make cake batters as directed on boxes. Divide the white cake into two separate bowls.

Add orange food coloring to one bowl and mix to the desired color.  Then, add purple to the other and mix to the desired color.

Pour 2/3 of the chocolate cake batter into a bowl and mix with a few drops of the black food coloring. Discard the remainder of the batter or use it for cupcakes. (You only need 2/3 of the chocolate cake batter, because if you use the whole thing in won’t fit in the tube pan).

Pour 1/2 of the chocolate cake mix into the bottom of the greased pan. Carefully pour the purple over the chocolate making sure you don’t stir it. Just pour it on top.

Then, carefully pour the orange batter over the purple batter and pour in the remainder of the chocolate.

Bake as directed on box or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes.

Turn pan upside down onto cooling rack that is placed over a cookie sheet. Cool cake completely, about 30 minutes.

Once cake is cool, equally divide your frosting into 3 bowls. Use the food coloring again to make one bowl orange, one purple and one black.

Microwave each bowl of frosting for a few seconds on high until it is smooth enough to drizzle over the cake. With a spoon, drizzle the black frosting back and forth around the whole ring in a striping pattern until you use it all. Then do the same with the purple and then the orange.

Set cake aside to dry.

Store loosely covered and unrefrigerated.

Cake can be made a day or two in advance.

Brenda says:

Hello Sugar!
This is my very first time visiting your site. I had come across an bundt cake recipe for a St Patricks Day cake from one of your other followers. So I was really interested on how she had made such a beautiful green St.Patty’s Day bundt cake and she referred her recipe idea and technique to you and your site. I just finished watching how you did your Halloween cake which was so beautiful. I am going to make one for St.Patrick’s Day and will share my out come with you. Thanks for you site, I use to love to bake but got a way from it after a divorce and my kids going out on their own. Now I believe Im ready now to just enjoy baking again and experimenting and baking for holidays and other occassions. Will keep in touch and let you know how I do. God Bless and Hugs to you. Brenda

Sugar says:

Brenda,

I am so happy ou found my site. This is a fun recipe and I think you will enjoy making it. I’m sorry to hear about your difficult time. I am sure there are many good days coming your way. Do try some of my recipes and let me know how it goes. Good luck to you and God Bless you as well.

Michelle says:

I’m making a Christmas version this week, with red green and white. I’m really excited to see how to turns out!

Sugar says:

Oh I am sure it will turn out great. Enjoy!

Cookin Nana says:

I made one in fall colors, chocolate, yellow and orange. Took it to my grandkids school for a cake auction. Sold for $14. Going to make some of the Cristmas ones and use a little peppermint schnapps in the green. I also made two of the Halloween cakes. Gave one to the neighbors and took one to my in-laws, was a big hit at both places. Thanks!

Sugar says:

WOW! That is so great. Thanks for the wonderful feedback. :) You made my day.

Doreen says:

What an awesome idea. Even though halloween has passed, i might give it a try. Have you, or anyone you know of, done a Christmas version? I was thinking…white cake, with green and red food colouring, red, green and white icing..i guess that would mean 2 boxes of white cake mix..?

Sugar says:

Yes Doreen I have done a Christmas one. Check it out. :)

Doreen says:

Awesome! Thanks so much :)

Catherine says:

Made this for work and it turned out perfect!

Yvonne says:

Thank you! I have made this cake three times since I saw it on your blog. It’s a hit!

Sugar says:

Too fun! I’m so glad you liked it. :)

Sarah says:

looks sooo good :) sent it to my friends n pinned it on pinterest

Sugar says:

Thanks for the post:)

DEBBIE says:

SUGAR,I could only find wilton icing colors concentrated gel will that be ok? can i also use tripe chocolate fudge cake mix since the store was out of dark chocolate.

Sugar says:

The color may not be as dark but it will be fine. That cake wix will work too. :)

brittany says:

please can someone email me the recipe I can’t get the printable version and I really want to make it PLEASE.

marlene says:

I made this for a party last nite and it turned out awesome, thank you so much for this wonderful idea. Wish I could show photo’s.

Dawn says:

Cake tasted great but unfortunately I couldn’t get the vibrant colors because Wilton food coloring is not made in a nut free facility and my son has serious peanut and tree nut allergies. The McCormick food coloring just couldn’t get the job done. Oh well!

Brittany says:

I am hoping to make this cake in the next couple of days. I was reviewing my ingredients and accidentally bought the Wiltons Icing Color Gel (rather than a liquid). Will that still work or should I try to exchange it? Also, I don’t usually buy box cake mixes. Do you think this will work with any homemade chocolate and white cakes? Thanks so much for showing your creativity and helping us find ours also. :)

Sugar says:

That should work just fine. The color may not be as dark but it should be fine. I only use the box cake to save time. Home made cake will be super. Enjoy!

Sandi says:

Making this today for my sons cake walk at school. I can’t wait to see how it turns out :)

Sugar says:

Great to hear. I’m sure it will turn out great. :)

Michelle says:

I cannot wait to bake this cake!
Although, I’m am having the worst time trying to print it. I really don’t want to sit here and copy the directions and ingredients word for word. (I know, I’m lazy :) Any suggestions?

Sugar says:

Oh no honey you can print all of my recipes by going to the icons at the bottom of the post where it says sharing is careing. The last icon in that row is a print one and you can print with or without photos. If you have any trouble let me know. :)

Betty says:

Very cool cake. I made one and took it to work. Lots of co-workers “WOWed” over it. It was tasty too. Thank you for a easy baking “wow” idea. :)

Sugar says:

So happy to hear it Betty. Thanks for the feedback. :)

Anita says:

Can you use devils food cake mix?

Sugar says:

Sure Anita that will be fine. :)

Anita says:

Hi Sugar I made it today and turned out fine.THANKS

Julie says:

I made this cake for our fall festival. Everyone LOVED it. I will make this again, and it was easy to make… The video helped a lot.

Sugar says:

Oh great to know Julie. :)

Kelly says:

I made this today & everyone loved it. I posted a pic on facebook and someone mentioned that the chocolate in the middle made spooky eyes, lol!

Sugar says:

Oh so great to hear. :)

Kathi says:

Nikki says:

I made the Halloween bundt cake and it came out great! It is beautiful on the inside and out and it tastes delicious!

Sugar says:

Nikki,

Thanks for the great feedback.

Sugar :)

Abequa says:

What type of pan did you use for this cake?

Sugar says:

I used a 10 inch Bundt pan or tube pan as some call it, that holds about 10-12 cups.

TJC says:

I DEFINATLY PLAN ON MAKING THIS BUT I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU :) A COUPLE WEEKS AGO I USED THIS TYPE OF FOOD COLORING (DIFF BRAND) FOR RED AND BLACK, NOW I HAD NO ISSUE W/ THE TASTE OF FROSTING BUT IT STAINED MY GUESTS’ TEETH RED/BLACK. HAVE YOU NOTICED THIS ISSUE W/ MCCORMICK BRAND?

THANKS

Sugar says:

I didn’t have that problem but it is food coloring so it’s possible that could happen.

ann says:

I can’t wait to make the bundt cake! Your videos are very cute:)

Ashley Ray says:

Andrea Payne says:

Just wanted you to know that a year later, this cake is still making people smile. I am turning it into cupcakes this week for a fall festival cake walk. Can’t wait to see the kids reactions as they bight into it and see all the colors.

Melissa says:

KARA says:

Sugar says:

Kara thanks for the feedback. I’m so happy to hear it. I hope you told them to check out my website. XXOO :)

Kelly says:

Wondering if it could be done in red and white, add some peppermint flavoring, then crushed candy canes to the top after the red and white icing. Candy cane cake for Christmas?

Sugar says:

Sure Kelly that would be great! Enjoy :)

Nicole says:

Beautiful! Is a 12 c. Bundy pan acceptable?
This is gorgeous! Can’t wait to make it for our Halloween party! Thank you so much! I pinned you!

Nicole says:

Jenny says:

I made my batter with duncan hynes, and my batter was a bit thicker then on the video.
Im hoping that it will turn out great because its going to be my birthday cake for 3 october.

Sugar says:

Jenny, I’m sure it will be just fine. Have a very Happy Birthday. :)

Alice says:

I just thought that was the cutest cake , I’m thinking that I could rework that for a Christmas cake, kinda like a wreath, what do you think

Thanks

Sugar says:

Yes this will work with all types of colors and holidays.

Stefani K, TN says:

I SOOOOO Can’t wait to try this puppy out. The cake part. I’ve been looking for some way to incorporate Red and Black and then decorate it with some creepy design. I love bundt cakes and have made quiet a few. Have a Death by Dark Chocolate (8 different forms of chocolate ladies!) and I am thrilled to try this one out.

Though I’m gonna change it up a little bit, sugar if you don’t mind? I want to use same Dark Chocolate cake mix, but instead of white, I’m gonna use Red Velvet! Get different degress of Red thrown amongst the black of the dark chocolate.

Then seemlessly cover it with my secret Dark Chocolate sauce with 3 different types of chocolate sauce and fill the center hole until it’s almost level……..then decorate it with white piping and a touch of red here and there. :)

What’s your email address? I’ll send you pictures :)

Sugar says:

Yum! Yum! That sounds great. If you can post the photo to my facebook page or email me. It’s up to you

Mary St Laurent says:

Hi Sugar , I was wondering have you ever made a red and green for christmas i am having a party and i think that would be awesome.

Sugar says:

Lori Tylicki says:

I am very sure that it will be a hit with my husband and my children..
So much so, that I will probably make it again in time for Halloween..
Thanks for the post and recipe.. I don’t know if your on Pintrest?
But, I would like to follow you if you are..

Sugar says:

So glad you like it. I’m sure they are going to think it’s super cool.

Diane says:

This is so pretty! I’m going to try it will all kinds of holidays. Thanks for the great idea!

Sugar says:

Great Diane. I’m sure you will love it. :)

Lorilee says:

All I can say is OMG! Out of all my friends, I’m the baker/dessert maker. I’m always the one told to bring dessert. Can’t wait to present this one. This looks awesome!! I did a practice run before our Halloween party, of course there are no complaints about having a cake in the house. I did make 6 cupcakes w the left over black batter, I cheated by stealing a spoonful of the purple & orange batter. My kids were so surprised when they bit into them seeing the multi colors. Thx for posting this awesome recipe. One question, if I want to try this w, say part of the cake white. (ex red, white, blue, 4th July), would the white remain white, or would the colors run into it?

Sugar says:

So glad you liked it. Yes you can do red, white and blue. You can see it here.

Enjoy! and let me know how it turns out.

http://www.cookingwithsugar.com/firecracker-bundt-cake-an-explosive-red-white-and-blue-dessert/

Lorilee says:

Sorry, another question. Do you think I’d be able to make this in a 9×13 pan for a school bake sale? Do you think when cutting it, it will have the same color effect as the bundt? Oh, thx for showing me the red, white & blue cake. This cake will be made many times with different color themes.

Sugar says:

Sure you can do it in a 9×13 it will look a little different but it will be great. :)

Hope says:

I can’t wait to make this for our halloween party this year! What fun this will be to make and to eat!! :D I’m so glad I stumbled upon this and thank you sooooooo much for sharing it!. I am not very good with measurements though :( , how do I figure out how to only use 2/3 of the chocolate cake batter?

Sugar says:

Hi Hope,

The best thing to do is eyeball your bunt pan and just make sure you have about two inches of pan left after you fill it so you give it enough room to rise. You don’t need to be too exact with the measurement. The main issue is that you can’t fit all the mix into the pan so you need to leave some out.

Lewis says:

Hey sugar absolutely adore your videos im a 13 year old and i love to cook and find this recipe fun and easy to make but i had to substitute some of the ingredients because i live i the uk.
Please keep making videos :)

Sugar says:

Thank you for the feedback. It’s so nice to see young cooks getting creative. Good for you. :) Keep cooking! XXOO

Mary says:

Even though my Christmas decoration are not all put away, we are already planning Halloween 2012. We usually have a huge theme party with about 100 – 150 guest. We’ve usually catered, but this year we want to add a bit of fun to the menu. I love all the Halloween ideas and plan on using them. Thanks for sharing.

Sugar says:

Mary,

Halloween is a fun time of the year. That does sound like a huge party. I’m sure they will love this cake. Very Fun!

Sugar

Shirley says:

I so love this, I plan on doing one with a Yellow cake mix and making the rest green and red!

Sugar :)

Chrissy says:

This is a wonderful idea. Since I just found this post and Halloween has passed I thought it would be a cool idea to use red, green and white for Christmas. I will send a picture as soon as I make it.

Sugar says:

Yes Chrissy it will look beautiful with any color. I’m making one for Christmas too.

Have a wonderful holiday and be sure to post the photo to my facebook fan page.

Sugar

Kim says:

Made it for Halloween and it was a hit…didn’t have the bright colors, but it still looked good. Tasted even better!!

Change the colors a bit, and you have a CAMO cake. My hunter hubby and daughter have each requested one for their birthdays! Changed the colors to tan, dark brown, and darker green and it looked great.

Sugar says:

Kim,

I’m so glad you liked it. I have to do it with those colors too. It will work for so many holiday ideas. Thanks for sharing.

Sugar :)

Natalia says:

I tried to make this cake and it all stuck to the bundt pan :( did you use olive oil to grease it?

Sugar says:

Oh Natalia,

I’m so sorry honey. Yes you always need to grease the pan when making a cake. If you read my directions I say to “Generously grease a 12-cup tube cake pan” Give it another try and grease the pan it will be fine.

Sugar

Annette says:

I just pulled the cake out of the oven, can’t wait to finish decorating. You are so right about using Wilton food coloring, so vibrant and bright!

Sugar says:

Annette,

Oh how fun. I can’t wait for you to slice into it. Enjoy :)

Whitney says:

I made this last night, and it turned out pretty good, not as pretty as yours, but it is cute and delicious! :)

Sugar says:

Whitney I am sure it turned out great. You can see a bunch of photos of the ones that people uploaded to my facebook fan page. There are so many fun versions of it. Check it out.

Sugar :)

Sugar

Caroline says:

I just found this last night and have bookmarked it! I am wanting to do one for our football gathrings – Seattle Seahawks fans here. I think a dark blue and neon green combo will look awesome. Thank you for posting this!

Sugar says:

Yes that is a great idea Caroline. Have fun making it.

Sugar :)

Caroline says:

I just need to now find navy blue and neon green food coloring…lol. :)

Caroline

Sugar says:

Caroline,

I don’t know if Wilton has a navy blue but I know that Betty Crocker makes neon colors. They come in a set at the super market.

Good luck and keep me posted.

Jerry says:

Made this cake for two different Halloween Parties. Great reactions when it’s cut and served and not a crumb left. Thanks for some great food ideas and recipes!

Sugar says:

Jerry,

I’m so happy to hear that. Thanks for taking the time to post your feedback.

Sugar :)

Gen says:

The only thing I changed was instead of spooning the icing on I put it into bags and cut the tips off and did it that way. Definitely faster and you get the same affect. Only problem I had was that the black Wilton icing dye I used tastes real funky. Way too sweet. Next time I won’t use the black icing.

Sugar says:

Sounds great Gen. Try the McCormick black I didn’t notice a flavor issue with that one.

Sugar :)

Hello, Sugar!

Okay. I must first confess. I’m a guy. And I cook. And I am a subscriber to your channel.

I made this cake this evening, and I gotta tell you, you are a genius. This recipe is super easy to follow, your directions crystal clear, and the results are phenomenal. This is going to be a huge hit at my friends’ Halloween Bash.

Thanks for all that you do.

Sugar says:

Clay,

I seem to have a big following of men who love to cook, so I have decided to change my tag line soon to say “inspiring people to cook again” I never wanted to exclude men it was just that when I started my site is was to inspire and help the women I knew personally. My friends and neighbors mostly. I have learned now that there are way more men out there like you. Thank you for sharing this with me. I am happy to inspire anyone to get back in the kitchen and enjoying all that comes from it.

Be sure to tell your friends and family about my site. Oh and enjoy the wonderful ohhs and ahhs you are going to get when you serve that cake. It’s fun to cook things that people enjoy. :)

Oh yes great idea be sure to upload a photo if you make it

Sugar

KISSSES says:

I LOVE THIS IDEA! I ACTUALLY MADE CUPCAKES WITH 3 DIFFERENT COLORS AND 2 DIFFERENT COLORED ICINGS! TOOK THEM TO MY JOB AND EVERYBODY LOVED THEM! THE COLLORS CAME OUT GREAT! I USED ORANGE PURPLE AND DARK GREEN FOR THE CAKE AND MADE ORANGE AND A GRAY ICING!

Sugar says:

How fun! Thanks so much for the feedback I’m glad it worked out

Sugar

Alison says:

I made this last night with my 7 year old. We used a 9×13 pan because it was what we had. It came out great and he had so much fun helping. Thanks for the creativity! I sent the rest of the cake with a friend for her bake sale. I am hoping it is a hit. I hope you try the turkey idea. That would be awesome!

Sugar says:

Oh I am so glad it turned out well. Thank you for your feedback. I love hearing it!

Sugar

bobbi says:

this cake looks great! going to a party this weekend and i have decided to try it – the kids and adults will love it i think! im usually a “side dish” girl, so this is a bit of a departure … hope i can do it justice! thanks for the great idea!

Sugar says:

I’m sure it will wrk out great! Have fun and keep me posted.

Sugar

Gayle says:

Love this! What a “WOW” factor. I think you could make a Thanksgiving Turkey with colorful fethers. Will YOU try to do it? I would love to see one!

Sugar says:

Gayle,

That is a fun idea. I will try to come up with something.

Sugar :)

Tammy says:

I made this cake today..Turned out great..Taking to a Halloween party tomorrow..Thanks for sharing the receipe..

Sugar says:

Tammy honey. Hi!!!

I’m so glad it turned out well. Wish I was going to the party with you. Have fun and tell Randy I send my love.

Hugs and Kisses,

Sugar :)

Samantha says:

Not sure if this was asked here, but could the same technique be used for cupcakes? It seems a bit more labor intense for cupcakes but I’m sure it would be worth it. How about a regular 13×9 pan? Would you have to swirl the batters if it’s not in a Bundt pan? This cake looks awesome!!!! Great job!!!

Sugar says:

Samantha,

Sure you can do cupcakes and a 9×13. You will have a different look but it should be great. Give it a try.

Happy Baking,

Sugar :)

Meghann says:

I’m taking this to a Halloween party on Saturday. Thank you!!

karen says:

Dear Sugar
Great cake. Does it work best with the supermoist cake mix ? as I am in the UK and we don’t seem to have supermoist ? would the normal Betty Crocker cake mix work ? thank you

Sugar says:

Karen,

Hi, I like the supermoist but you can use the regular Betty Crocker too and it will be fine. Happy Baking!

Sugar :)

sandy blue says:

Rayna Z says:

Could you use green food coloring instead of purple?

Sugar says:

Rayna,

Sure you can. Happy Baking!

Sugar :)

Madhatter says:

I sure wish you had been around 30 years ago when I was making cakes for my kids Halloween Cake Walks at school. I made “cat” cakes for them every year and they are so time consuming to make. I was going to bake one for my grand-daughter this year, but after seeing this fantastic cake I just have to make it for her. Especially since her favorite color is purple. Thanks so much for this recipe.

Sugar says:

Oh how sweet. I’m so glad you are going to make the cake for her. If you want that bright color be sure to pick up some Wilton Icing Color at Micheal or other craft stores.

Happy Baking.

Sugar :)

Sj says:

My daughter’s birthday is the day before Halloween & I was planning to make cupcakes in ice cream cones, until I saw this. I love this cake! Do you think I could do this in the ice cream cones?

Eileen Blanchefleur says:

Hi I made this cake yesterday and it was a hit! I didn’t have purple food coloring but I had a gray silver one. My cake still came out pretty though. I’ll send you a picture of what was left of the cake. Put I’m writting this on my phone so I’m wondering how to send you a picture from my phone.

Sugar says:

Elleen,

I’m so glad it was a hit. Yes please send me your photo. Just email it to info@cookingwithsugar.com or post it to my Facebook fan page http://www.facebook.com/CookingwithSugar

Thanks for the feedback. It makes my day to know that people are trying my recipes.

Sugar

Cheryl says:

This cake looks SOOOOO YUMMY and BEAUTIFUL! I am off to the store to get all the ingredients. I will send you a photo when I’m done.

I think this cake can be done any time of the year. . . just change the food coloring to fit the occasion! Red and pink for Valentines! Green for St. Patty’s! The birthday boy or girl’s favorite colors! Pastels for spring! Too fun!

Thanks for such a wonderful idea!

Sugar says:

Cheryl, Yes I have done it many ways. Have fun makig it and thanks so much for the nice feedback.

Sugar :0

ali marie says:

Oh my goodness I absolutely LOVE this! I am going to make it tomorrow for our annual family pumpkin carving get together :) Am I able to find the food coloring in those colors at any local grocery store or WalMart?

Sugar says:

Ali,

Hi, I’m so glad you like the cake. You can get food coloring at the super market but it’s not very bright so it is hard to get these colors but you can get close. If you can stop into a Michaels or other craft store and pick up Wilton icing coloring. The colors are very intense and look amazing.

Have fun and be sure to let me know how it turns out.

Marion Pella says:

So cute!

What a great idea, you are absolutely right about getting the food coloring at craft store, I tried making orange myself last week and it was a lovely shade of pink that would not go anywhere!

Course the kids loved it anyway.

Thanks for a great idea!

Marion

Sugar says:

That is so true. You can get just about any color at the craft store and that stuff is soooo strong.

Thanks for the feedback and have a Happy Halloween.

Sugar :)

Amber says:

We tried this cake yesterday. It was great! We had put it in a pumpkin pan to bake for I didn’t have a bundt pan. It was so fun. The kids love it. Thank you for sharing. Oh,we made mini cupcakes and mini ghost cakes with the left over batter. They are so cute! I think your idea for this cake is the best! I can’t get over how pretty it is.

Sugar says:

Amber,

I’m so excited that you made it and it turned out great. Thanks so much for giving me your feedback. I try very hard to come up with fun new ideas so it thrills me when people actually make them.

Hugs,

Sugar

Angela says:

Such a simple idea yet it is so effective. I made one just for fun not Halloween themed, it turned out great! Thanks so much !! :D

Sugar says:

Melissa says:

Hi! Has anyone ever tried this in a regular cake pan? I need to bake a cake for alot of people and I think a bundt cake won’t be enough :( thanks

Sugar says:

Melissa,

I haven’t but I’m sure it would work. Give it a try and let me know.

Happy Halloween,

Sugar

ML says:

Ummm, it’s the same amount of cake, whether in a bundt pan or a 9×13. Sliced correctly, it will feed a lot more than it appears.

Sugar says:

ML

Yes it can feed a bunch but it’s so easy to make if anyone is concerned about not having enough cake just make two. They are so easy it’s not that much extra work.

Sugar

Simone says:

That is amazing! This would be so great for our Halloween Recipe Blog Hop! http://is.gd/X7I9XV

Leigh Kirks says:

We just had a family reunion on Oct 1st for my husbands family. I decided that since we were in the month of halloween, I would attempt to make this beautiful cake. IT WAS A HIT!!! My mother is a known cake decorator in our town, and she thought this was really great. I loved the simplicity of it. Thank you so much for sharing. I am so very glad I stumbled upon your website. I now have “Cooking With Sugar” app on my iPhone. You are great and thanks again.

Sugar says:

Leigh,

You are so sweet for writing me and making my day. Some days I think I’m silly for spending so much time with my recipes, photos and stuff and then I get great feedback like this and it makes it all worthwhile. I hope to spread my love of cooking one kitchen and one person at a time. Please be sure to pass my site on to friends and family.

Happy Cooking

Renee Tyre Palumbo says:

What a great idea! I’m also thinking about all the other holidays that this can be customized for. Thanks so much for sharing!

Sugar says:

I know Renee. It’s a great fun way to make a cake. :) I’m going to be doing a bunch of them with other themes. Thanks for the feedback.

Donna says:

I just found a site that sells decorative cupcake wraps. I wonder if i could make cupcakes like this.

Sugar says:

Donna,

Sure you can. I was going to make them for a party like that too. Just a bunch of fun ways to get creative. Go for it. :)

Betsee says:

Noemi says:

Great I idea luv the colors didn’t even cross my mind to do a bunt cake … I just recently made a Dallas Cowboys rainbow cake it had white a little black & blue colors…thanks for the idea.

Sugar says:

Noemi,

I’m so glad you like it, When I make it everyone is amazed at how pretty and easy it is. Enjoy!

Barbara says:

How did you make the Dallas Cowboys Cake? I’d love to do that! Thanks.

Sugar says:

Just use the team color and it will look great.

Happy Baking!

Sugar :)

I love this very simple and creative recipe! I am always on the hunt for a fun Halloween recipe since my son’s school has a potluck Halloween Party each year. I will take pictures -Thanks again!

Sugar says:

Donna,

I’m so glad to hear it. I know if you make it everyone will go crazy over it. Enjoy and do send photos. Very fun!

DEAR ERIN,
I HAVE made other Bundt cakes.but I have never in my whole Life ever made a HALLOWEEN cake that it was so Beautiful, you just didn’t want to eat it.I might give that a try. sents HALLOWEEN is in 35 day & 4 weeks. that would be a great ideal to fix it
for HALLOWEEN. our church also has a HomeComming comming up some time next month. so I made wait and make it for that. thanks for that wonderful recipe. what a
wonderful ideal.

Sugar says:

I’m so glad you like it Candace. Thanks for the feedback and be sure to let me know if you do make it.

Hugs,

Sugar

WOW! Those colors are amazing!

Sugar says:

Erin,

I used wilton food coloring. It works great. Thanks for posting. If you make one send me a photo and I will add it to the blog. :)

monicka says:

This is awesome!! i am going to have to try it for my dad and stepmoms wedding anniversary. they got married on halloween. Cant wait to try it!!

Sugar says:

Oh they are going to love it. Try to get the Wilton Icing Coloring because that will give you the vibrant color.

Enjoy :)

Jessie says:

The Black wilton food coloring definitely gave the frosting a weird taste. I would recommend using chocolate frosting so you can use less black coloring.

Jessie says:

Oh, and I did this with cupcakes instead of a bundt pan because I don’t have one, and they turned out really cool! If you didn’t know they were going to be multi colored, you’d be really surprised when you bit into one!

Sugar says:

Jessie, Glad it turned out well.

I didn’t try the wilton black I used the McCormick so thanks for the tip.

Sugar

Barb says:

You have to look for the No-taste black in order to avoid the nasty taste. It is pretty easy to find these days.

Sugar says:

Oh good tip Barb thanks. :)

Jamie says:

I only use Wilton food coloring but am unable to obtain the deep purple or that particular color of orange you have in the video. I also have never been able to make a black icing and not that red is incorporated in this video but figured I would mention it because I am sure you make a great red too. What is your tip to get the colors since I buy the same food coloring as you do?

Sugar says:

Jamie,

Make sure you use white cake so it doesn’t interfere with the color. I’m not sure why you can’t get the color. Those Wilton colors are so strong. I guess you need to use more color. Good luck. :)

MK says:

Just made an iowa state cyclones version!! I noticed the icing colors darkened a ton after about 15 seconds in microwave. Couldn’t get red to look red enough until then.

Sugar says:

Glad it worked out for you. The colors can be tricky at times. Depends on the brand.

Lori Moton says:

I found after a few hours of setting up I got a super vibrant red using Wilton’s no taste red, made a great power rangers red ranger cake!

Lynette says:

Just came across this. I will remember this for next halloween. I have grandkids that would love to do this recipe. Looks like fun and I love the colors and how it all turns out.

Sugar says:

Lynette yes do try it. I am sure they will love it.
