Made with a devil's food cake base and topped with Cool Whip and crushed Oreos, this spooky and fun graveyard cake is as delicious as it is fun to decorate!
‣ 1 box devil's food cake mix, plus ingredients to make it ‣ 30 Oreos ‣ 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips ‣ 4 Milano cookies ‣ 3.3 ounces instant white chocolate pudding mix ‣ 2 cups milk ‣ green and orange food coloring ‣ 8 ounces Cool Whip, softened ‣ Halloween Peeps, ghost, pumpkin, and black cat, etc ‣ candy pumpkins ‣ gummy worms ‣ Halloween sprinkles ‣ candy eyes
Kick things off by preparing your chosen devil’s food cake (whether that be from a box mix or your favorite homemade recipe) in a 9×13 baking dish. Once done, set the cake aside to cool while you prepare the decorations.
In a food processor, toss in the Oreos and pulse until they’re nice and crumbly. Once done, set the Oreos aside for now.
Add the semi-sweet chocolate chips to a microwave-safe bowl and heat until smooth. Transfer the chocolate to a pastry bag with a small cut for piping. Break off the bottom of the Milano cookies (to make them look like tombstones) then use the melted chocolate to write spooky Halloween sayings on them.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the instant white chocolate pudding mix and the milk until smooth. Separate half of the pudding into another bowl, then dye both with food coloring as desired.
Use the bottom of a wooden spoon to poke numerous holes in the cooled cake, then spoon in (or use an injector) the pudding into the holes, alternating colors as desired.
Top the cake with Cool Whip, then cover the Cool Whip with the crushed Oreos.
Decorate the top of the cake with the prepared Milano tombstones, Peeps, candy pumpkins, gummy worms, Halloween sprinkles, and candy eyes.
