    Fondant is not that hard to use. It’s actually easier to work with than buttercream. Here’s the recipe that I use: http://whatscookingamerica.net/PegW/Fondant.htm It tastes good
    too.

    Another thing that might be simple and fun would be some chocolate molds. Right now there are Wilton molds for skulls and tombstones at the craft stores. The molds are really easy to do, buy candy melts and a small paintbrush, then melt a little candy of one color and paint in the details, then fill the mold with the other color, refrigerate until hard, and they pop right out of the mold.

    It would be easy to bake a cake in a large bowl and then you’d have a hill. Frost it with green buttercream and make marks in it with a fork to look like grass. Make some candy tombstones and stand them up randomly on the hill. Make candy skulls and put them on the cake too. Use oreo crumbs to look like the dirt on disturbed graves. Make a couple of fondant ghosts peeking out from behind the tombstones. You could make some bats (with a small cookie cutter or freehand) on wire and have them flying around the cake. Just roll some black fondant, cut out the shape, dip a floral wire in egg white or heat it a few seconds in a candle flame, and then insert it into the fondant. Dry the bats on crumpled foil so they look like they’re flapping their wings. Let them dry for several days so they’re hard before you lift the wires up and stick them in the cake.

    I think this is really cute… it is on krispy treats but could be done on cake too…

    Fondant can be tricky if you’ve never used it before. Besides, it tastes yucky.

    If you’ve never used fondant, it can be tricky. You have to roll it out fairly thin and cover your cake and smooth it down. Getting a smooth, flawless covering is the trickiest part for people who aren’t used to working with it, however, once on it’s a great canvas to work on if you are going to be decorating.

    You CAN always stick with buttercream icing. To simplify the process, you can create a graveyard scene using your cake. Crush oreos and lay it down on top of your buttercream and use milano cookies as tombstones that you pipe writing on. Your cake is only as creative as your imagination, so go wild.

    I used the recipe below for cakes at 3 different places!! It was sooo easy and it got great reviews!!!

    http://www.quickandsimple.com/recipefinder/pumpkin-shaped-chocolate-cake

    for the icing on the cone i got a small can of green decorating icing at the store and it made that super easy!

    Oh and to keep it from sliding around put a small amount of icing on the bottom of the cake before you put it down to make it stay on the plate. You can also use the icing to stick candy corn or other candies to the plate.
    Good luck!

    look for the recipe for kitty litter cake. I don’t know what it is off the top of my head, but it turns out really cute and gives everyone that gross factor.
