“This is such a cute Idea for Halloween or a reptile themed birthday party. I made one for halloween! I have not included the time it takes to make the cakes.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 10 inch bundt cake (any flavor you like)
  • 2 (16 ounce) cans white frosting
  • food coloring
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 red fruit roll-ups or 1 fruit leather
  • assorted decorative candies


  1. You will also need: 1 40x20 cake board covered in foil or paper Cut each bundt cake in half, NOT horizontally, vertically.
  2. Position pieces end to end to make a serpentine shape (like an"S" on it's side) Set it on the cake board with a little bit of frosting as the glue.
  3. Tint your frosting whatever color you'd like your snake to be.
  4. I did a green color.
  5. Frost entire length of cake with the colored frosting, frosting halfway down the sides.
  6. If you do the whole thing you'll need another can or two of frosting.
  7. Place the chocolate chips in a zip bag.
  8. Microwave on MEDIUM (50%) power for 20 to 30 seconds.
  9. Mush the bag a bit and microwave 20 more seconds on medium power until chocolate is melted.
  10. Clip the corner of the bag and use it to make a diamond pattern along the snake's back.
  11. cut the fruit roll-up into a strip that has a forked tongue shape on the end and set under one end of the cake Decorate the eyes and nostrils with the candies (I use M&M's).
