Nightmare Before Christmas Cake

Happy National Dessert Day guys! In honor of this fun holiday I wanted to share a look at my Nightmare Before Christmas Cake from last weekend. I threw a little Halloween party and thought this would be the perfect compliment to the Poison Candy Apples and Candy Corn Cookies (recipes coming soon).

The Rundown:

I used this heavenly Dark German Chocolate Cake recipe to start then opted for a lemon and honey buttercream frosting. I actually went in that direction because I realized about 5 mins before making the frosting that I was out of vanilla and orange extract, which is my usual go to buttercream flavor. That’s the beauty of buttercream right? You can make it however you want! I topped off the cake with a simple sugar caramel drizzle and some fun sprinkles picked up at Target. And there you have it! What are some of your favorite desserts and Halloween theme treats? I would love to know! Leave me a comment here on the blog or find me on Facebook and Twitter.
