Happy October! It’s time to start decorating for Halloween!! It is also time to start thinking of your Halloween party food! My favorite Halloween recipe is the Pizza Skulls recipe on the blog. They are frightfully festive. I wanted to use the skull cake pan for something else, so I came up with these Chocolate Lava Skull Cakes. OMG! I LOVED how they turned out. I want to have a Halloween party just so I can serve these Chocolate Lava Skull Cakes. SO FUN!

The most critical part of this whole recipe is greasing the Skull Cake Pan. There are so many nooks and crannies. You really need to make sure to get into all of them. I greased the pan with shortening and then went back with some cooking spray. The cakes came out perfectly! I had some stick in the pan when I only used shortening, so I suggest the shortening AND cooking spray method.

The other critical step in this recipe is to let the cakes cool for 3 minutes in the pan before turning them over. If you try to turn them over too soon, they might stick in the pan.

To get the cakes out of the pan, I put a sheet of parchment paper on a baking rack. I put the parchment paper and baking rack on the top of the pan and flipped it over. I lifted up the pan and they all came out perfectly. Carefully lift the skulls to your plate so they don’t crack. You can also cut the parchment paper and place the cake on the parchment on your plate. Once you have the cake on your plate, just slide the parchment out from under the cake.

Serve the Chocolate Lava Skull Cakes with whipped cream and/or vanilla ice cream.

  1. I’m using the skull pan with 20 mini skulls. What would be your baking time recondition? I failed to think of that on my first batch. Ugh!

    1. I can’t say. I’ve only made this with the larger pan. I’ve never used your pan. You are just going to have to experiment with the time.

    1. You don't pipe the lava into the cake. The cake batter creates the lava for you inside the cake. Just make sure not to over bake the cakes.

  2. I love all Halloween party food! And I'm such a crazy sucker for a holiday cake pan — pretty sure I'm going to need to own that! These would so be the hit of any Halloween party! Thanks, Steph!
