Summary: This Halloween Recipe: Easy Eyeball Cake is the perfect dessert for all your ghosts, ghouls, and friends.


  • Vanilla cake mix or basic white cake recipe of your choice
  • Vanilla frosting
  • Small package of red Jell-O gelatin
  • Blue food coloring
  • Black food coloring
  • Red decorating frosting tube


  1. Bake the cake according to recipe or package directions in two 9 inch round cake pans. Allow cake to cool in pans.
  2. Prepare Jell-O according to package directions and poke holes in cooled cake. Pour jello over the holes in each cake pan.
  3. Place cake pans in the fridge to allow Jell-O to set.
  4. Once cake is set, remove from pans and transfer to pie place. Frost bottom layer with vanilla frosting. Place on top layer and frost entire cake. (reserving a small amount of vanilla frosting to mix eye colors)
  5. Separate the reserved frosting into 2 bowls and mix in the blue and black food coloring accordingly.
  6. Create a medium sized circle in the center of the frosted cake with the blue frosting to create an iris. Create a smaller circle with the black frosting inside the blue circle for a pupil effect.
  7. Take red decorative frosting tube and create red veins extending from the iris to the edge of the cake. (you can make your own red frosting and use a pastry bag and tip)
  8. Place cake in the fridge until ready to serve. For added fun, cut the cake with a saw cake cutter, or some other kind of odd and spooky untensil. Serve and enjoy!
