This Halloween serve your party guests a cake filled with candy. Not only is there candy coming out of the top of this Pumpkin Pail Cake but when you cut open the cake you’ll find more candy hiding inside.
Did you carry a plastic pumpkin to collect candy when you went out trick or treating on Halloween?
It’s the perfect candy collecting vessel for young kids. Of course at some point most kids outgrow the pumpkin and opt for a pillow case.
I remember using both and as much as I loved running from door to door collecting candy, my favorite part of the night was when I got to dump the candy out onto the table to see what was hiding inside my bucket or pillow case. There was something quite magical about that moment.
I tried to recreate that feeling of excitement in this cake. When you look at the cake it looks just like an iconic plastic bucket filled with candy. Then you cut into it to find even more candy is hiding inside.
Now that is my kind of Halloween dessert.
This cake was so much fun to make and even more fun to serve.
Thankfully, I did write a very detailed tutorial in case you’d like to make one for yourself. Stop by Tablespoon.com to see how I turned a pumpkin spice cake into this fun Halloween dessert.
