Next Wednesday, Oct. 15 is National Cake Decorating Day. In honor of this all-important holiday, Wicked Jack’s Tavern wanted to give our loyal fans a few tips on how to make their sweet treats a little spooky for a Halloween party.
This time of year, candy seems to be pouring out of everywhere. There are bowls at the office and at home, and kiddie bags filled from trick-or-treating. Here are some great tips for how to put those mounds of candy to good use.
Start with one of Wicked Jack’s Taverns moist, vanilla, butter rum cake.
As a special treat, fill the center of the cake with Reese’s Pieces, M&M’s or Runts hard candies.
Cover the top with light brown chocolate icing. Then add a sprinkling of Oreo cookie crumbs and a few well-placed gummy worms.
Cover the entire cake with vanilla icing and decorate with candy corns, or crushed bits of Heath and Butterfinger candy bars.
Or stick black licorice twists around the outside of our chocolate rum mini cakes and place beady Red Hots cinnamon candy as eyes to make a scary spider.
