Can I get an AMEN?
1 prepared cake
1 container of powdered sugar doughnut holes (I had enough in an assortment pack)
Roll of white tulle (over by the party/wedding favor supplies)
Black Decorating Icing (over by the cake decorating supplies/crafts)
Cookie Sticks (over by the cake decorating supplies/crafts)
1. On a rimmed cookie sheet, insert the cookie stick into your doughnut hole.
2. Cut out two squares of tulle, approximately the same size, and angle them slightly. Fold them over your doughnut hole. Secure with a little white twine, making sure to bring the tulle down snugly over the top of the doughnut hole to make a level surface for your piping.
3. Pipe two eyes and a mouth on your doughnut hole. I found that getting the icing a little warm helped make the piping easier so keep that in mind!
4. Stick your ghosts on top of your cake.
How easy is that?
This cake was such a hit and I loved that it adds a homemade touch to a store-bought treat!
As you know, I’m pretty darn frugal, so I want to share a tip that might help you at your store.
Be sure to check the rear of your store (over by the dairy section usually) to see if there are any reduced to sell bakery items on a rolling cart.
It is there where I often spy prepared cakes and doughnuts that are perfect for sharing with guests or for rounding out a meal together with friends.
If you check there first, it is possible you might be able to score these treats for a fraction of the price that I paid.
I promise to not be jealous.
I look forward to sharing more fun Halloween ideas with you in the upcoming month and hope you love this festive (and easy) treat idea!
