Tombstone Cake

You can purchase a tombstone shaped cake pan at most cake decorating supply or large craft stores.

Mix and bake cake according to directions on cake mix box. Let cool. Remove from cake pan and lay on a flat cake board. A little trick is to cover the board with aluminum foil or parchment paper and you can take the slices off easier.

Decorate according to direction that came with the cake pan. Using disposable pastry bags for frosting makes clean-up easier. Using a frosting spatula available at craft and cake decorating stores makes applying frosting easier, too.

You can use canned frosting or make a simple frosting like this one:
1 cup of shortening
2 cups of powdered (confectioners) sugar
1 teaspoon meringue powder
1 tablespoon cold water

Using a hand mixer, blend the ingredients together until silky smooth. Separate into bowls and use paste food color to make the needed frosting colors.
