Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 350ºF.
  • Spray 2 (8-inch) square pans with cooking spray. Prepare cake batter as directed on package; pour 2/3 of the batter into 1 pan and remaining batter into second pan. Bake 30 to 32 min. for the smaller cake, and 45 to 48 min. for the larger cake, or until toothpick inserted in centres comes out clean; cool in pans 15 min. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
  • Cut thin cake diagonally in half; cut each half diagonally in half again. Cut thick cake crosswise in half. Reserve 1/3 cup frosting; set aside. Stack thick cake slices for the house, spreading some of the remaining frosting between layers. Repeat with cake triangles to make second stack for the roof.
  • Place house on foil-covered board or tray; frost top and sides. Place roof on top of house; trim if necessary so edges are even and roof sits securely on top of house. Cover with remaining frosting. Spread reserved frosting on foil around cake for the ground. Decorate with remaining ingredients to match photo. (See Tip.)

Decorating Ideas

Cut the Cadbury Mr. Big Bars into thin slices; use to make both the cobblestone path and shutters. Use the Cadbury Crispy Crunch Bars to make both the fence and tombstones, Cadbury Wunderbars to make the coffins, and Cadbury Caramilk Bars to make the gate doors for the fence. Decorate with remaining ingredients as desired, tinting some of the white icing with food colouring before using to make windows.

How to Store

Keep decorated cake refrigerated.
