I just finished this cake for my son's birthday/halloween party. Doesn't look "quite" like the picture but it's really cute, and I think it turned out pretty well considering I'm not a professional cake decorator. For anyone considering this, just be sure to watch the video and read the other reviews for hints and tricks. The only thing I did that wasn't mentioned is leveled off the cakes - took maybe 1/2 inch off the top of each - before I put them together to make a more perfect round shape. I used a pyrex bowl that I've always used as a mixing bowl but the bottom said "ovenware" and it worked like a charm. Great idea, Betty Crocker! I'm sure my son will be thrilled tomorrow.
