Bats are my favorite Halloween decoration so, of course, I have to decorate a cake with bats for Halloween. Decorating a Bat Cake for Halloween is really very easy!
By simply using a cake stencil and sanding sugar, you too will be able to create delicious cakes that double as great Halloween decorations.
There are many Halloween cake stencils available for purchase. We just happen to love bats!

The Bat Stencil
The bat cake stencil included in this package has the one large bat with a quote that warns “watchout!”. I really like this new stencil! One large bat would be even easier to stencil than several smaller bats.
My cake stencil is an older stencil with the bats centrally located on the cake. Occasionally, you can find a stencil like mine available on Ebay.
My set, by Martha Stewart (44-01008 or #5415), includes 4 cake stencils: Bat, Vampire, “Eat if you Dare” and Blood Splattered.
If your can’t find a bat stencil you like, you can use cookie cutters instead!
