Spooky season is here and with it, lots of black buttercream cakes. I’m no stranger to the trend and before now I’ve stuck with a method of making my Favorite Chocolate Buttercream recipe and adding a few Tbsp of AmeriColor Super Black.

So when I saw some sneak peeks of SprinklePop’s Halloween sprinkle lineup, I couldn’t help my brain from bursting with spooky cake ideas! I got my hands on the Monster Mashup sprinkle mix as soon as it hit the shelves and got right to work on planning the ultimate Halloween cake.

The planets, the stars, the crazy colors, the final frontier – it would all be worth floating around in a spaceship and eating weird food just so I could see it all up close! So far, the closest I can get is channeling my love for space into an out of this world Galaxy Cake:Read More
