This Halloween, I’m all about fun & interesting snacks. I love making something festive for my kids to come home from school to. I especially love when it earns me an extra hug or two. This super moist, incredibly delicious orange Fanta bundt cake is beautiful to look at & earns me those extra hugs I love so dearly. #SpookySnacks

I dressed up this classic recipe with some fun Orange Fanta flavored frosting to give it just an extra touch of Fanta flavor & color.

INGREDIENTS (CAKE) (adapted from The Pioneer Woman)
  • three sticks butter (softened)
  • three cups sugar
  • five eggs
  • three cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • one cup Orange Fanta
  • two tablespoons Orange Fanta (additional)
  • two drops Orange Food Coloring (optional)
You can locate all of these ingredients at your local Walmart store along with all of your Halloween necessities like pumpkin scented candles, trick or treat bags, decorations, & more. There will also be a fun in-store demo at select Walmart locations between October 24th-26th featuring the Fanta I used here along with Wheat Thins & Halloween Oreos. Refer to this list to see if your store is hosting one!

DIRECTIONS (CAKE)
  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a large mixer (with the paddle attachment), cream together your butter and sugar.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, making sure to mix after each addition.
  4. In a separate, large bowl, combine flour and salt.
  5. Add the flour mixture one cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  6. Turn mixer down to low setting & slowly add Orange Fanta combined.
  7. If you’re a sucker for a theme like me, now is when you add in the food coloring.
  8. Spray a bundt pan with nonstick baking spray.
  9. Add batter to bundt pan & smooth out to evenly spread batter.
  10. Bake for one hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  11. Allow to cool in pan for at least five minutes before removing cake.

INGREDIENTS (FROSTING)
  • three cups powdered sugar, sifted
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup Orange Fanta
  • purple food coloring
DIRECTIONS (FROSTING)
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and gently whisk until thick. 
  2. You may need to adjust the ratio of sugar & pop until you get the right consistency. Same with the food coloring. Add until you get a deep purple color rather than a lavender color.
  3. Drizzle over cake.
  4. Allow to set before serving. Or, if you’re spook-ifying your cake, now is the time to add ghoulish decorations.

I love this recipe for Halloween evening. Halloween is all about indulging, right? It’s perfect for a trick or treat break along with little Dasani water bottles that the kids can take along with them to stay hydrated.
