Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Spray 2 (8- or 9-inch) round cake pans with cooking spray. Line bottoms of pans with cooking parchment paper, if desired, to prevent sticking.
  • 2
    Make and bake cake as directed on box for two 8- or 9-inch round cake pans. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, use black and orange gel or icing to write RIP on oval-shaped cookies and miniature candy bars; set aside.
  • 3
    On serving plate, place 1 cake layer, rounded side down. Frost top of cake layer with about 1/3 cup of the chocolate frosting. Top with second layer, rounded side up. Frost side and top of cake with remaining frosting.
  • 4
    Sprinkle chocolate cookie crumbs on top of cake to make dirt. Insert cookies and candy bars into top of cake for tombstones. Insert 1 end of toothpick into bottom of each ghost-shaped marshmallow. Insert other end into top of cake.
  • 5
    Break 8 of the pretzel sticks into thirds. Use whole pretzels and pretzel thirds to make a fence around edge of cake as shown in photo.
