Spooktacular Vegan Graveyard Cake

Hello Everyone & Happy (almost) Halloween!

Are you planning a halloween potluck? Heading to a boo-tastic bash? A frightful party? Why not make a spooktakular vegan graveyard cake?!

This fun dessert is quick, easy, and devilishly delicious! It’s not a made from scratch piece of art—instead it’s a cake that is easy to whip up so you can spend all that extra time on the decorations! There are so many “accidentally vegan” baking items on the market that are perfect for this recipe. Just grab a boxed cake mix, follow the instructions, add icing, and then decorate your ghostly graveyard cake! I’ve been making graveyard cakes off and on since I was in elementary school so I can attest that they never grow old! Why not give it a try?

Cheers and happy haunting!

Spooktacular Vegan Graveyard Cake


  • 50-60 minutes (30-35 cook, 20 prep/post)
  • One 9×13 cake pan
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Grease a 9 x13 baking pan.
  3. Make 3 eggs worth of egg replacer or mash 3 bananas.
  4. Mix together cake mix, water, oil, and egg replacer according to the boxed mix directions.
  5. Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for 30-35 minutes until cake is done (my oven took 32 minutes for a toothpick to come out clean).
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan for ~5 minutes.
  7. Flip the cake onto a cooling rack, and allow to cool completely.
  8. Then move the cake onto whatever surface you will use for your display.
  9. Evenly spread a thin layer of Vanilla Frosting around the edges and on top of the cake.
  10. Spray a hefty coating of Green Edible Cake Decorating Spray on the icing.
  11. Create your graveyard display using fake tombstones, pumpkins, spooky tree, etc. Get creative!
  12. Remove the frosting from three Oreos and crumble the cookie.
  13. Place the crumbled up Oreos on a few graves to make them look “fresh.”
  14. Strew Halloween Sprinkles around the cake.
  15. Enjoy!

  1. Yah for the cake! This looks incredibly fun but maybe slightly outside of my skill zone haha 🙂

    What I really want to know is how do I make those cookies above this post? They look soooooo yum! 💚
