Category: Holiday, Cakes

 Ingredients List

  • 2 pk Cake mix, prepared
  • 2 cn White frosting
  • Food coloring
  • 1 Hostess Ho-Ho (or similar
  • -cake-roll snack item)


This is actually more a method than a recipe, but given the recent requests
for Halloween goodies I thought it might be of interest. I originally saw
this in Parents Magazine about two years ago. It has been a favorite for
our family celebrations since then!

Prepare two cakes in bundt pans, cool completely. Color most of the
frosting a deep orange, reserving about 1/2 c , which should be colored
black (you may also use dark chocolate fudge frosting). Place one bundt
cake upside down (rounded side on the bottom) on cake plate; frost top
only. Place second bundt cake flat-side down on top of first cake. Frost
entire cake with orange frosting, making up and down motions with spatula
to simulate pumpkin. Insert Ho-Ho in the middle of the top of the bundt
cake to make the stem. Use black frosting to make eyes, nose, mouth, etc.
Black rope licorice may also be used.
