Get ready for the night of “trick or treat” with Pillsbury® Funfetti® Halloween frosting and Halloween cake mix. If you have been hanging out with me for a while, you know that I love the holidays. October is the start to my decorating and cooking marathon. If I had time, I’d probably do a fun craft or recipe every single day. With my crazy schedule that’s totally out of the question…but I do make time here and there.
The folks at The J.M. Smucker Company sent me a couple of the Funfetti® Halloween frosting tubs (arriving soon at Publix stores). When my boys saw the tub with the fun sprinkles, of course they decided that we needed to bake up a treat. I did cupcakes pretty recently, so I wanted to do something a bit different this time around.
I decided to whip up a fun treat that I call the Pillsbury Fall Surprise Cake. From the outside it looks like a regular cake but once you cut into the cake, there is a fun pumpkin surprise! This is so simple to make and has a wonderful presentation. I just baked my favorite pumpkin bread then once the bread had cooled, I cut slices and used a cookie cutter to cut out the pumpkin shapes. (Try the Pillsbury Pumpkin Quick Bread if you don’t have an easy recipe). I arranged the shapes in a line down the middle of a loaf pan. Then I poured a prepared Pillsbury White Cake mix over the line of cut pumpkins and baked the cake. Once it cooled, I added some Pillsbury® Funfetti® Halloween frosting and let the boys sprinkle the candy pieces and we had a fabulous dessert that is delicious and fun! The best part is that every slice offers a fun “surprise.”
This would be a great cake to take to your fall festival or Halloween party. The boys and I also made an orange colored cake with a white “surprise” ghost that turned out super cute. You can use any shape/cookie cutter you like – making this perfect for so many occasions!
