Haunted House Cake
There was no real recipe' for this cake. The house was made by cooking a thin layer of Brownie mix on a cookie sheet. I baked the brownie till crisp, then carefully cut out the house shape.
I used the lolly pop hard candy recipe to fill in the windows and door..
The cake was made with two boxed chocolate cake mixes. Using icing I attached hershey bar steps and shutters, and sunflower seed shingles. I sprinkled cake crumbs on top of frosted cake and stuck in a few twigs ( trees) ~ The kids LOVED it!
