Halloween Forgotten Graveyard Cake - frosting
Prep time
Total time
Spookalicious cream cheese frosting in a ghostly shade of grey
Recipe type: Baking
  • 300 gm Icing sugar
  • 250 gm unsalted melted butter
  • 250 gm cream cheese
  1. Melt the softened unslated butter in the microwave for 30 sec
  2. Sieve the icing sugar into a mixing bowl
  3. Pour the butter over it and mix well
  4. Add the cream cheese
  5. Using a toothpaste add 2 drops of black food colouring and with another toothpick add 1 drop of ivory food colouring - they mix to give a spooky and slimy grey colour to the frosting
  6. Blend into a smooth paste with a hand blender for almost 4 minutes or until the mixture is smooth and the sugar granules are totally mixed into the butter and cream cheese
  7. To decorate the cake I only used a small amount and after my nephews had a go at decorating I slathered on the remaining slime all over the cake slab - made for a very happy 2 year old ;)
  8. Of you would rather not use up the whole buttercream, simply change the colour to anything you fancy and freeze - keeps for 3 weeks in an airtight box in the freezer
  9. To use thaw overnight in the refrigerator and blend for minutes to get the same texture again
  10. Once thawed use it all up, do not refreeze
