You might remember my 4th of July Bundt Cake recipe, it has been pretty popular. I am really excited to share with you our Halloween version, which turned out pretty cool! To make this Spooky Bundt cake, just follow the instructions below. You will have fun figuring out your design and of course the very best part is cutting into your cake to find out what your ghosts and goblins look like!
1/2 C unsalted butter, room temp
2 egg whites
2 C flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 baking soda
3/4 C buttermilk
1 1/2 C sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Neon orange,neon purple, and black gel food coloring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prep bundt cake pan.

Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each.
Add 1/3 C flour mixture to the wet mixture followed by adding 1/3 C of the buttermilk; add 1/3 C flour mixture again then add 1/3 C buttermilk mix on low speed, add 1/3 C of flour and add the rest of 1/3 C of buttermilk mix in low speed until thoroughly blended.
Divide the batter into three bowls…. add black gel food coloring to one…. add neon orange gel food coloring to the second and add the neon purple gel food coloring to the third bowl. Stir well.
Spray the bundt pan with cooking spray.
Begin by spooning in some of the black batter then the neon green next the neon orange and black on top.
Bake the cake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Allow the cake to cool in the pan for about 20 minutes then remove the cake from the Bundt pan and place on a wire rack until completely cooled.
Making designs in your batter
Have fun playing with the batter. We tried to make faces in ours, and each time that you make these cakes the outcome will be a little different. To play with the designs, just start to pour the black batter in a design on the top of the bundt cake batter. The color will soak in. You can create designs at any point in adding batter to the bundt pan. Just avoid doing designs on the bottom of the cake, as no one will be able to see them.
1 C soft unsalted butter
4 + C powder sugar
4 TBSP heavy whipping cream
Black, neon purple, and neon orange gel food coloring
Cream the butter and powder sugar until it looks light and creamy.
If it doesn’t cream add several drops of the heavy whipping cream until it creams. Once the frosting has the right consistency then divide it into 3 bowls.
In each of the three bowls add several drops of gel food coloring. 1 st bowl add black, 2nd bowl add neon purple, 3rd bowl add neon orange. After each color addition stir well to mix the colors.
When the colors are right, starting with the black frosting using a spoon drizzle the frosting on the cake. Allow the black frosting to dry. Then repeat the process with the neon purple frosting. Lastly, repeat the frosting process with the neon orange frosting.
Allow all frosting to dry on the cake.
