Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. The weather, sports, festivities and colors can’t be beat. Plus, two of my favorite holidays happen this time of year – Halloween and Thanksgiving.
I wanted to get a head start on what I would be doing for my fun fall festivities and what fun baked treat I could come up with. Then it hit me. What makes anything amazing even better? You put it on a stick!!!!
Cake kabobs! These were so fun and easy to make that I think anyone would love this activity, and it would be great to do with kids.
I started out by using a simple white cake mix. I then divided the batter equally into the colors I wanted. I used Wilton Icing Colors to tint the batter. For Halloween I used green, purple and black, then for fall I used orange, red and brown.
I then took the remaining batter and smoothed it out on a jelly roll pan making sure that it was all about the same thickness. I baked this for about 7-10 minutes until a toothpick came out clean. I then used a 1 inch diameter cookie cutter and cut out small round pieces of cake.
Then I got to layering. There is no right or wrong way to do this! I used Wilton Decorator Icing in a disposable decorating bag to add some frosting between the cake layers so they will stay together and rotated between colors and shapes.
I also melted some Candy Melts® Candy by following the directions on the package in a disposable decorating bag, snipped off the tip and added fun accents to the shaped cake pieces on the kabobs. I added some Eyeballs & Eyebrows Fun Pix to give some personality to the cake kabobs.
These were so fun and easy and I really think that my friends and family are going to love these fun, festive treats this season!
