Go wild with ready-made decorating gel and icing on this wacky cake--all you need to add is the scream!

Ingredients

  • 1 box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ white cake mix
  • Water, vegetable oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box
  • 1 container Betty Crocker™ Whipped fluffy white frosting
  • 1 can decorating icing
  • 1 can blue decorating icing
  • 3 large green gumdrops
  • 2 large white gumdrops
  • 1 tube green decorating gel
  • 1 tube red decorating gel
  • 1 tube black decorating gel

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Spray two 9x5-inch loaf pans with cooking spray. Make cake batter as directed on box; pour into pans. Bake 32 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 2
    Trim about 1/4 inch off top of each cake to level. On long serving platter (at least 18 inches), place cakes bottom sides up to make long rectangle.
  • 3
    In small bowl, mix 1/3 cup of the frosting and the green food colour until well blended. Frost one-fourth of cake (top and sides) with green frosting for face. Frost remaining cake with remaining white frosting.
  • 4
    Using ribbon tips on decorating icing cans, draw alternating white and blue lines, beginning at edge of green frosting, to far end of cake.
  • 5
    Place 1 green gumdrop on each side of face for ears and 1 for nose. For eyes, press white gumdrops, small ends down, on face. Use decorating gels for eye pupils, eye lashes, nose and lips. Store loosely covered.

  • The cake is easier to work with if you freeze it before cutting and decorating.
  • Create an attractive display by covering a piece of sturdy cardboard with wrapping paper, then plastic food wrap. Stretch and secure with tape. Or cover cardboard with foil or parchment paper.
