It’s hard to believe that Halloween is just around the corner and to celebrate, my little ladies and I decided to mix-up the cutest PINK a boo cake recipe you ever did see!
My girls and I love to spend time baking together in the kitchen and I always have a few cake mixes on hand for when we get the itch to bake. But, one thing I never skip out on is homemade frosting. I have been using the same delicious, yet easy, four-ingredient buttercream frosting recipe for as long as I can remember! When life gets busy, you can always rely on homemade frosting to make everyone ask for seconds, or even thirds, and I promise you, everyone will be asking “Is this cake homemade!?” Here is my go-to buttercream frosting recipe:
- One box of your favorite Cake Mix
- Candy Eyes
- Any decorations you want to use as cake toppers, we used this BOO cake topper from @fancyfreefinery!
For the Simple Buttercream for you PINK a Boo Cake Recipe
- 1 c. unsalted butter
- 3.5-4c powdered sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1-2 tbsp milk or heavy cream
Step 1: Make and bake your cake using instructions on the box.
Step 2: Make your simple buttercream frosting by combining butter, powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time, and vanilla together using a standing mixer or a handheld mixer.
Step 3: Slowly add in the milk or heavy cream until frosting is at your desired texture!
Step 4: Wait for your cake to cook completely and then frost, decorate and serve!
Pro Tip 1: Let your butter soften outside the fridge for 30-60 min. before you combine all ingredients, I promise it makes a big difference when baking!
Pro Tip 2: Don’t forget the crumb coat! After baking your cakes, put them in the fridge overnight. In the morning, ice the cakes with a quick, thin layer of icing aka “the crumb coat” and place the cake back in the fridge for an hour or two. Finally, add the last layer of icing to get a nice, smooth, crumb-free coat before decorating and serving this delicious PINK a Boo Cake Recipe!
This super easy PINK a Boo Cake Recipe is the perfect treat for any Halloween party and will have your guests impressed! Enjoy!
