A Peek at the Fun: Halloween is all about candy and it doesn’t get any more fun than making a Halloween candy cake! This cake is a perfect centerpiece for a Halloween party or an amazing gift for a friend!
I’ve got to admit something to you today. I love chocolate. A lot. Ok, like it might be a problem, but at least it’s a happy problem, right?!
So while I loved the first candy cake that I made because it’s bright and colorful and fun, I knew I needed to make a chocolate version pronto.
And what better way to create a chocolate candy cake than with a Halloween flair? It’s not only cute, but it tastes great too!
So here’s the best Halloween candy cake I can think of!

It would also make an amazing gift for a friend whether it’s for an October birthday or just because you really love your friends!

Would you like to make a Halloween candy cake? I will show you how!
Halloween Candy Cake Tutorial:
- Hat Boxes (I get mine at the craft store and they come in a pack of 3. I use the largest one (nine-inch diameter) and the middle size one (about 7 inches), but you can use any size you want.
- Candy bars-I used M&Ms for the bottom layer because they take up more space. Then on the next layer we did candy bars-it took about 18.
- Bite-size candy-I filled the empty spaces with the little bite-size candies.
- Double stick tape
- Rubber bands
- Decorations for the top (I grabbed some at the party store)
- Floral foam to fit inside your top layer
How to Assemble Your Halloween Cake:
This is fairly easy to put together. Here’s a video to show you the process:
Start with your bottom layer. (Make sure the opening of the box is down.) I put a piece of double stick tape on the back of each of our candy bars to add some extra strength, then put a rubber band around the whole layer as well.
Do the same thing with your next layer (but make sure the opening of your box is up) and the candy bars.
Place your floral foam inside the top layer and add the accents.
Fill with your bite-size candy in any of the open spots you’ve got.
Then add your ribbon. I also added some cute spiders which I love!
Now you’ve got a perfect centerpiece for your party!
Give this as a gift to someone you really love because it’s awesome!
Have FUN making this Halloween candy cake!
