Beckham has been needing some one on one time so I figured a little time in the kitchen with Mom would be a good idea. I decided to make a Tombstone Cake with him because they are so fun and easy.
You can either make a cake and top it with pudding or just do a solid pudding bottom. My favorite chocolate cake is this To die for Chocolate Cake.
Cake and/or pudding
Chocolate or black licorice
Wire – I didn’t have and tried to use toothpicks and it didn’t work very well
Black food coloring and a tiny paintbrush or Food Marker Writers
First make your base.
Crush Oreos in a bag and spread on top.
I wanted to make a cool tree like this one from Parents….
…but I was short the wire and so I used toothpicks and skewers. It did not have the same effect but Becks didn’t mind.
To paint the names on the tombstones I added a teaspoon of water to a bowl and mixed in black food coloring. Then I used a tiny paintbrush to paint on the engravings. Pam just informed me that they have Food Marker Writers.
Here are some funny tombstone names to use:
Ray N. Carnation
G.I. Miss You
Al B. Back
Don’t forget to lick the leftovers!
The boys are dying to eat it! Ha Ha Ha! 🙂
