My Spooky Soiree – Third Course, Bloody Finger Cake

October 17, 2011 No comments » [ssba]

The third course for my Spooky Soiree is a nifty idea for dessert. Nothing pairs as well with Ponte’s Late Harvest red than a nice fat slice of bloody finger cake. I plan on applying several Band-Aids on the tips of my fingers the night of the party to leave my guest wondering. Let the party continue…

Third Course: Bloody Finger Cake paired with our 2009 Late Harvest


  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 t vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ t baking powder
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 5 ladyfinger cookies
  • White frosting
  • Red glaze frosting


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Grease a 9 inch round baking pan
  • In a medium bowl, cream together sugar and butter.
  • Beat in eggs
  • Add vanilla
  • Combine flour and baking powder and stir into butter mix
  • Add milk slowly
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes
  • Once cake is cool frost with prepared frosting
  • Place 5 lady fingers on the top of the cake
  • Paint fingernails on the ladyfinger cookies with the red glaze icing.
  • Drizzle red glaze icing over cake to resemble blood

Don’t fly away on your broomstick just yet, stay tuned for some great ideas for party decorating and Halloween gift giving.
