Everyone loves a great story and this cake provides just that! Imagine showing a child or even an adult a cake with lots of tiny tunnels and holes in it filled with a gooey rubbery like substance! What kind of creature could have done such a thing… oh, let the imagination out for this one! A yummy and creepy Halloween Tunnel Cake that is so much fun to show off. Pretty simple to make and even funner to eat, this dish can be made a number of different ways with different flavors and you can even add to the creepiness by adding gummy worms or other bug like candies.
Creepy Halloween Tunnel Cake Ingredients:
1 package white cake mix
3 ounces red Jell-O mix (you can use any flavor really… the red is really neat looking though)
3/4 cup boiling water
1/2 cup cold water
1 1/2 cups cold milk
1 small package instant vanilla pudding mix
1 envelope dream whip topping
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 handful of candy corn
Creepy Halloween Tunnel Cake Directions:
Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add cold water and stir until mixed and place in fridge until ready to use- do not allow to ‘set’, just keep it chilled enough.
Prepare cake following the package directions for a bunt sized cake. Let the cake cool for some time and then turn upside down on a large platter with a brim as the jello will leak out.
Using a straw or skewer “poke” tunnels and holes around and to the bottom of the cake about an inch apart, you can do it at random or in a tunnel like pattern, it’s up to you. Pour the cool liquid gelatin into the holes! Place in fridge so the gelatin sets.
Beat together the topping ingredients until stiff peaks begin to form, add red or scary green food coloring if desired. Once gelatin is set and you are ready to show off your gross Halloween treat, frost your creepy Halloween tunnel cake, sprinkle with gummy worms, or other candies for decoration and enjoy!
