Here's how easy it is...
  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, (160°C for fan ovens), Gas Mark 4.
  2. 2. Place all the cake ingredients into a large bowl and beat (use an electric hand whisk if you have one!) until pale and creamy.
  3. 3. Pour into the cake tin and bake for about 55-65 minutes until springy. Cool in the tin for a minute, and then turn out on a cake rack.
  4. 4. When cool, put the cake on a plate and cover with the icing. Cut the biscuit ‘tombstones’ in half and write spooky words on with white icing. Make small cuts into the cake and carefully put the tombstones into the cake!
  5. Look out for Halloween icing decorations or ghoulish sweets to top on your cake for a spooktacular centre piece!
