The recipe for this gorgeous cake...... It's HERE. Basically it's a chocolate cake mix with some sour cream, 4 eggs, and a pudding mix added to the 1/2 cup water. So easy. And it calls for 2 cups of chocolate chips but I never put that many in. Usually a cup is all I add. And if you run out of pudding mixes, a small box will do.
After spraying pam on the bundt pan and baking it up, I mix up a batch of cream cheese icing. My recipe is 1 brick of 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature, and I dump it in my mixer. Then I add a half cube of butter and about 1 1/2 cups of confectioner's sugar, a teaspoon of lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla.

Mix it up and then put it in a pastry or zip lock baggie and cut the end off one corner to pipe the icing.
I just make lines going from the outside to the inside all around the cake. I topped this one off with an eyeball superball and a squishy skeleton I got at Walmart for $1.29 each.

Walmart also had these 10 packs of plastic skeletons I put around the outside of the cake. They were $1.29 too. Amazing! Kids would love these for party favors.

It turned out so cute! I love Halloween decorations! My son said, "Hey mom, it's a Halloween cake for my birthday!" Do you think he thinks I'm weird? Ya maybe.....
|You squeeze the skeleton head and the eyes pop out like big bugs!|
|Chocolate Bundt Cake...yummy!|
Yeah.....I couldn't help myself. hehe. It was a fun party.
|Okay Jeff looks rather scary here with the giant hunting knife his dad got him. Look at my poor |
granddaughter eyeing the size of it! Oh my!
Here he is with his favorite present. It looks like a giant machete! EEK! (just don't put a Freddy mask on and go out with that on Halloween night, OKAY?)
