Easy Decorating

After the cake is cool, it’s time to make it look like the Funny Bone! Start by slicing the cake evenly into two layers. Place one layer on a cake board and layer with your favorite frosting. Add the top layer, and then pipe frosting around the bottom edge and sprinkle with crushed Oreo cookies for the “bone” look. Add a few more Oreo cookies around the outside of the cake, and voila! You’re finished.

The Funny Bone Cake is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser, and it’s easy to make! Its unique flavor – with just a hint of nutmeg and the addition of the red velvet food dye – combined with its eccentric appearance make it a fun dessert for any occasion. Plus, its versatile ingredients mean you can switch out the Oreo cookies for whatever add-ons you’d like.
