Like all baking paraphernalia left in the world this comes from Wilton
The picture on the box and recipe on the back suggested one use brownies, but coffins aren't usually crumbly and made to look like dirt. That's what the grave is for (this edible death analness is why you all love me, yes?), so I tossed the suggestions and hauled out my Evil Cake Overlord Cookbook.
This time I went a bit easier with an Autumn Glory Cake. I also halved everything from the original to fit.
- 1 1/2 cups Cake Flour
- 1 1/8th cups Sugar
- 1 Tbsp Baking Powder
- 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon (okay I kept the cinnamon amount the same because I love that stuff)
- 1/2 tsp Ground Cloves
- 1/2 tsp Ground nutmeg
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 box of instant vanilla pudding mix
- 3 Eggs
- 3/4 cup Water (I used apple cider because I had some around).
- 3/4 cup Butter
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
I baked my little coffins at 350 for 30 minutes (cakes call for 45-60 minutes) as well as 6 extra cupcakes thanks to left overs and they came out looking like this:
I'd almost call them done myself but what is cake without frosting? Again I have no technique whatsoever for putting a sugar and egg white mixture on top of delectables so just squint a bit.
Now to find some unsuspecting Trick-Or-Treaters to unload these babies on.
