Dia De Los Muertos Cake DIY

For Dia de los Muertos, I decided to do a few activities with our boys. One of them was to make a quick an easy 2 ingredient pumpkin cake!


First, I used our favorite baking mix (Pillsbury Classic Yellow) and mixed it in a bowl with 1 can of pumpkin puree. I also added a few dashes of pumpkin spice seasoning.


I purchased this skeleton cake mold from Krogers, washed it, and lubricated it with butter. I poured the batter into the mold, and placed it into a preheated oven of 350 degrees Fahrenheit. I cooked it for about 30 minutes (cook according to the box instructions.)

Once it was completely cooked and cooled, we decorated! (the boys' favorite part). Funfetti is by far our favorite icing, I used it along with cake mate writing icing.

I frosted the cake with the vanilla icing, and then we decorated it with the gel little squeeze tubes. 

This was our finished product (the boys later sprinkled sprinkles all over the cake!). It was so delicious, the cake was super moist!

I can't wait to use the pumpkin puree mixed with the boxed cake mix again. I'll probably experiment with other canned fruit purees for easy cakes!

Have you ever made a pumpkin cake?
