Halloween Pumpkin-Shaped Cake

Submitted by imjoni

 

2 packages of cake mix, prepared

2 cans white frosting

food coloring

1 Hostess Ho-Ho

 

Prepare two cakes in two bundt pans and cool completely.

 

Color the frosting a deep orange, reserving 1/2 cup, which should be colored black.

 

Place one bundt cake upside down (rounded side on the bottom) on a cake plate; frost the top only.  Place the second bundt cake flat-side down on top of the first cake.  Frost the entire cake with orange frosting, making up and down motions with frosting spatula to simulate a pumpkin.

 

Insert the 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. (or use candies, gum drops, jelly beans, black rope licorice...be creative!)
