I'm a good baker, but sometimes, speed is the answer. And my little four year old chocoholic doesn't really have a palette for gourmet treats, the junkier the better. So with that said, check out this "so easy a caveman can do it" Halloween cake. It starts with a Pepperidge Farm chocolate frozen cake (thawed most of the way), some Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies, some plain shortbread type cookies, a few crushed Oreos for dirt, and some gummy pumpkins from our local candy store, and voila! Instant kid happiness.
To do the writing on the tombstones, I melted some chocolate chips and piped them on there, and then chilled to set. However, if I had skipped this step, it still would have been just as cute and Little Man would have never noticed. We devoured this cake and I think it took 10 minutes to put together. Little Man asks "Mommy, I want this cake every day from now on."
