Graveyard Dirt Cake

Graveyard Dirt Cake! Perfect dessert for Halloween! { lilluna.com } Delicious pudding, oreos, cookies, & candies!!

Earlier today I shared with you another family favorite recipe called Kansas City Dirt Cake.

Well, recently I saw in a magazine a different version of this cake that was jazzed up a bit for Halloween. I loved it so much and wanted to share it with you today. I’m calling it Graveyard Dirt Cake.

Fun and festive, right?!

It’s pretty much the same as the Dirt Cake from earlier today with the additions on top.

Here is the recipe in case you missed it:

  1. These are so much fun to play with! When one of my nephews was in drum corp, they would have a party before the championship, and it fell right around Halloween every year, so I would make Halloween goodies, a version of this being one of them. I would ice the names of their rival teams onto the tombstones, etc. One year, I found a candy skeleton at the Dollar Tree, so I grabbed that and dug out a “grave” in the cake in front of one of the “stones,” piled some cake crumbs at the foot of the hole like a dirt pile and had the skeleton crawling out LOL.

  2. This looks fantastic! Not sure I’ll be able to find mallow pumpikns but I’m sure I’ll be able to find another candy alternative. Thanks for the great idea.

  3. Hi! I know this post is very old, but I tried to make this cake recently and it didn’t go very well. The taste was great but the cake didn’t curdle. What can I do? What do you think the problem is? Thank you!
