Spooky Eyeball Cake

I’ll admit it…I’m a total cakewalk mom. I love making a Halloween themed cake and watching kids giggle or say “wow, look at that one!” Every year I do something different. This Eyeball cake has been the biggest hit by far over the last 8 years and honestly, the most simple; go figure. I thought I would share this easy decorating idea so that you too may you look like a cake decorating rock star.

cake

Instructions
  1. For your cake mix, you can use whatever flavor you would like. I chose chocolate. Bake as directed on the box, but add 1 extra egg and 1 cup of sour cream to the batter. You want your cake to look great, but you also want it to taste awesome. I hate the word moist, but MOIST cakes are the best and these extra ingredients will make that happen. ****You will need an oven safe glass bowl to bake your cake in, lightly sprayed with cooking oil. This creates the eyeball shape.
  2. Cool the cake completely. Once cooled, flatten out the top(which will actually be the bottom) with a serated knife. This doesn't have to be perfect! You just want to make sure that the cake is not wobbly when you flip it over. Trust me! I can't even draw a straight line.
  3. Prepare your frosting and apply your blue circle. I placed my blue frosting into a ziplock sandwich bag and snipped the corner tip to pipe on my shape. Next, apply a "crumb coat" of white. This is where you spread a very thin layer of frosting to secure the crumbs and then place the cake in the refrigerator for 15-30 minutes. The frosting is then hard and seals in any unwanted cake morsels that could possibly creep all up into your masterpiece.
  4. Once the crumb coat has hardened, remove the cake from the refrigerator and spread the rest of your white frosting. I used the back of a spoon for the design around the eyeball...in case you care.
  5. For this next step I found an old witches glove in my Halloween arsenal. I cut off the fingers and placed them around the eyeball to make it look like it was being held. I secured the fingers with toothpicks.
  6. This is where the red colored frosting and the red gel coloring come into play. I placed my red frosting in a ziplock bag and piped it around the eyeball, adding a little extra around the fingers for more stability. Your eyeball should look like it is sitting in a small pool of blood. The red gel is used for the veins on the eyeball. Using a toothpick, dip it into the gel and then draw your best veins all around your eye- making sure to wipe off the toothpick before each application.
  7. I am quite aware of the fact that you cannot purchase one Oreo cookie, so eat a few and then place one in the center of your blue frosting. BOOM!! DONE!!! You are now a total cake boss. Refrigerate your kick ass cake until ready to display.
