Cake
2
boxes Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® yellow cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix boxes
Frosting and Decoration
1/2
teaspoon orange paste icing color (not liquid food color)
2
containers (1 lb each) Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
1
flat-bottom ice cream cone
1/2
cup Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy dark chocolate or chocolate frosting
2
green candy-coated chocolate baking bits
2

4

  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease and lightly flour 12-cup fluted tube cake pan, or spray with baking spray with flour. Make, bake and cool 1 cake mix as directed on box for 12-cup fluted tube pan. Repeat with second cake mix.
  2. Stir 1/4 teaspoon of the orange paste icing color into each container of vanilla frosting. To make pumpkin shape, place 1 cake, rounded side down, on serving plate (if necessary, trim cakes to form flat surfaces). Spread top with 1/3 cup orange frosting. Place second cake, rounded side up, on top of first cake. Frost both cakes with remaining orange frosting.
  3. Frost outside of ice cream cone with 1/3 cup of the chocolate frosting. In small resealable food-storage plastic bag, place remaining chocolate frosting; seal bag. Cut tiny hole in one bottom corner of bag. Squeeze bag to draw eyes, nose and mouth on pumpkin with frosting. Add baking bits for irises of eyes and candy corn for teeth.
