Ghostly Graveyard Cake is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this cake for a friends son's birthday. I didn't use the pumpkins and for the ghosts, I made them out of candy melts and once dried attached them to the cake with frosting. I also covered the cake in fondant before decorating. The fences were much easier to pipe than I had expected. I love using the grass tip because it can hide imperfections and it doesn't have to look perfect. I also added some candy bats and put some bouncy ball eyeballs in the grass per request of my friend. Was a hit at the party!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter wanted me to make this cake for our Halloween party this year and it turned out great. No one wanted to eat it because it looked so great! I was a little hesitant with the little pumpkin balls but I finally gave in and went out and bought the tiered set. It was adorable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this as a single layer cake with the pumpkins sitting on top. It turned out so cute! I had two pumpkins stacked in the middle and one on each side. I covered pumpkin shapes with fondant rather than buying the globe pillar set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this for a Halloween party last year and everyone thought it was from a bakery! The colors were stunning and very vibrant. Working with fondant can be frustrating but once you've had some practice it gets easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made a single layer cake out of this design. I didn't make any of the pumpkins though, because I have never worked with fondant.
