This was a Graveyard cake that I assisted an 11 year-old with for her school's Halloween cake competition.

Step 1: Supplies

  • 1 layer of cake
  • Chocolate frosting
  • Thin pretzels
  • Candy molds (we used Wilton's tombstones, coffin and large skull)
  • Candy melts (you can get these online, at Michael's Crafts or in cake shops)
  • Chocolate cookies (ex. Oreos or chocolate wafers) 
  • Fondant (optional)
  • Strawberry jam (aka blood)


This is so cool, I love the pretzel fence!
