It's just a bunch of Hocus Pocus!


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup whole milk at room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 3/4 cups white sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prep edible slime per package instructions.
  3. In a standard mixing bowl, whisk together your flour, salt, and baking powder.
  4. In a separate bowl, and with your hand mixer on a medium speed, cream together your butter and white sugar until light and fluffy.
  5. While still at that same medium speed, incorporate your eggs on at a time.
  6. Switch to a low speed and stir in your lemon juice.
  7. Staying on that low speed, alternate between your flour mixture and milk. Being sure to start and end with the flour.
  8. Separate your pound cake batter between four bowls.
  9. Color one portion of batter orange, another purple, and then hot pink, and finally blue-green.
  10. Randomly add pound cake batter into your prepared pan, alternating between colors, and allow to bake for 1 hour or until your cake tester comes out clean.
  11. Once pound cake has cooled for 15 minutes, cover with edible slime.
  12. Top with gummy frogs and Halloween sprinkles.
  13. Slice, serve, and ENJOY!


  • I stock up on edible slime every year at Target in their Hyde & Eek section. It's on $5 so it's such a steal.
  • Room Temperature Ingredients: Be sure to allow your dairy ingredients to reach room temperature. Room temperature ingredients not only combine more effortlessly (no over-mixing needed) but they also trap air so much better. This trap air will expand and produce a fluffy texture during your baking process.
  • Prepared Pan: There will always be the "next best way to prepare your pan" article. Simply put however, the most effective way i find in my kitchen is a light rub of shortening around the sides, parchment paper on the bottom of the pan (for majority of baking pans), & a very light dusting of flour (cocoa powder for chocolate baked goods) all throughout.
