easy crashing witch cake


A few years ago I made crashing witch cupcakes (just her legs and icing for her skirt) and this year I took it one step farther and made a crashing witch cake!

I used a Keebler sugar cone cut in half for the hat and skirt. The hat has a Keebler Grasshopper cookie as the base and then the bottom of the cone makes up the skirt. Just melt a bit of purple chocolate (available this time of year at craft stores and baking supply stores) and paint it on the hat with a kitchen basting brush, then add a few sprinkles before it dries. For the skirt, roll the edges in chocolate and add a few sprinkles.

For her hair, I cut open a green rainbow Twizzler and spread it out under the hat.

Her legs are orange candy sticks and her boots are Starburst. I just heated two squares for eight seconds each and molded them into the shape of high healed boots. Then I drew on the laces with a food marker. 

By the way, the cake is just a flat iced buttercream cake from Kroger ($5.99 per layer) and the border is alternating orange and black sixlet candies. Super easy and no baking required! {wink}

As always, I hope your inspired!

    So cute and very creative! Was she a good witch or a bad witch?!

    So clever on the skirt idea. I’ve made hats from cones and cookies but then you have the rest of the cone left over. Now I know what to do with it! :)
