Buddy the Elf's Spaghetti (Cake) Recipe

This spaghetti-less cake is inspired
by the movie "Elf".
It's cleverly disguised to look like
a huge plate of spaghetti 
and is topped with a variety of
Buddy the Elf's favorite candies.
This is the perfect dessert to serve
at your Christmas or Holiday party.


Elf Spaghetti Cake
*makes 2 cakes


2 (8 or 9" round) single-layer cakes, baked and cooled
3 (16 oz) tubs of store-bought, vanilla frosting
2 tablespoons maple or pancake syrup
1 box of Sno-Caps (chocolate non-pareils)
multi-colored mini marshmallows
red and green m&m's
2 chocolate fudge Pop-Tarts
1 (16 oz) tub of store-bought, chocolate frosting

Tools needed:

cake decorating bag
cake decorating tip Wilton #5 round


Bake and cool cakes completely.

Scoop all three tubs of vanilla frosting into a large mixing bowl. Add maple syrup and mix well. 

Spread a thin layer of frosting over the tops and sides of each cake. This does not have to look nice, this layer will not be seen. Set the cakes in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to set the frosting.

Spoon frosting into cake decorating bag fitted with #5 tip. Squeeze swirly lines all over the cakes to look like spaghetti (watch the above video to see how this is done). 

Now it's time for the toppings. Sprinkle the Sno-Caps, marshmallows and m&m's on top. Break up the Pop-Tarts and place the broken pieces randomly on the cake. 

Place the tub of chocolate frosting in the microwave and heat for 1 minute until it's a liquid consistency. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cake with a spoon.

Now pop in the Elf DVD and enjoy!!

  1. This cake looks so delicious with a lot of chocolate frosting with a touch of spaghetti that is something different and unusual. I will try this recipe at the weekend while watching the Elf movie.
