This is a Coffin you can be buried in

From BBC Nottingham-Top Ten Crazy Coffins

 

This is a Coffin you can make out of cake- you can eat it:

From TLC Cooking HERE

INGREDIENTS

1 loaf (16 ounces) pound cake, thawed if frozen
4 graham crackers
1 container (1 pound) caramel frosting
1/2 pound assorted Halloween candies
5 to 10 gummy worms
1 cup chocolate cookie crumbs

PREPARATION:

  1. Cut cake loaf to resemble coffin by cutting 1-inch triangle from 1 corner of cake. Cut opposite corner to match; this will be the top end of coffin. Cut long, narrow triangles (1X4-inches) off bottom corners to form bottom end.
  2. Slice 1/2-inch layer off top of cake horizontally to form lid; set aside. Leaving 1/2-inch border, cut around inside edge of cake and scoop out some of interior. Cut graham crackers to fit onto cake sides; use frosting to attach graham cracker “boards” to outer sides of cake. Frost top of cake, if desired.
  3. Fill inside of cake with candy and gummy worms, allowing some to spill out over edges. Set lid on cake at slight angle.

Tip

Cake looks great atop chocolate cookie crumbs, on a wooden cutting board, with a small spoon as a shovel in a pile of “dirt” crumbs next to coffin.
