I yelped with delight upon opening an October issue of Family Circle Magazine because they featured this cemetery cake in their monthly recipes.
Because we are a small family, I decided to make a small version of the cake and "cheat" somewhat with the ingredients. I purchased the Devil's food square cake shown and substituted the crumbly chocolate with chocolate sprinkles. My mom called these "ants".
It takes a steady hand to do the lettering on the cookies. I wouldn't want to try any names or dates. As you can see I saved the real recipe in case I wanted to make this next year.
