Make a Black Cat Cake for Halloween


One Cake Mix of your choice

Two Containers Prepared Chocolate Frosting

Black McCormick® Assorted Fall Food Colors

Candy Corn & Black Licorice Strings

One Pretzel

Cake Board


1. Bake two 8 or 9 inch cake layers as directed. Remove from pans and let cool completely. While you’re waiting, make a cake board to show your gorgeous cake creation.

2. Freeze the layers for about ½ hr. prior to frosting. This will make them less crumbly and simpler to frost. Just place them in large resealable bags and place on a cookie sheet in the freezer.

3. Mark a circle around one of the cake layers about 1 inch in from cake edge and cut at marking. Remove the inner circle and set aside. This will be the cat’s head. Save the outer cake remnant to form the tail, ears and feet.

4. Prepare black frosting by adding food coloring from the McCormick® Assorted Fall Food Colors to the chocolate frosting until the desired color is achieved. (Use about 3-4 drops food coloring for each 1/2 cup of frosting.)

5. Position the large and small layers on your cake board to resemble kitty’s head and body. Frost both layers, swirling to give a furry effect. The cut layer (head) will require more frosting to cover the open sides.

6. Cut pointy ears and feet from the cake remnants and place on top and bottom of cake. Next, cut and position the tail, making a bend in the middle .

Frost tail, ears and feet and attach to head and body with frosting.

7. Add black cat’s eyes and nose made of candy corn. Cut the pointy ends from 6-8 candy corns to make the cat’s toenails. Use the bottom rounded part of the pretzel to make black cat’s mouth. Add a few black licorice strings to each side for whiskers.
