This treat is a real Halloween "trick" because it isn't a "cake" at all. It is actually a cluster of cupcakes that's sure to please at your Halloween party.


1 package of yellow cake mix (2 layer style)
1 Package (4 serving) Jello Vanilla Instant pudding
1 package (8 oz) Cream Cheese
1/2 stick butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
6 drops green food coloring
1 package (16 oz) powered sugar, sifted (4-4 1/2 cups)
black decorating gel
6 Oreo Sandwich cookies, crushed
1/2 cup miniature marshmallows


Cup Cakes
Prepare yellow cake mix according to package

Add a package of Jello Vanilla Instant Pudding

Beat until well blended

Spoon batter into 24 paper lined medium size muffin cups with an ice cream scoop

Bake as directed on package

Remove and let cool

Mix softened Cream Cheese and 1/2 stick of butter

Add vanilla

Add food coloring

Beat on medium until well blended

Gradually add 4 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating well at low speed

Assemble Cupcakes
Arrange cupcakes into shape of template
(available here: http://www.kraftfoods.com/pdf/MonsterCupcake.pdf)

Spread frosting evenly over the top of cupcakes, leaving no holes between cupcakes

Use decorating gel to outline facial features

Cut miniature marshmallows in half for the eyes and teeth

Fill in hairline with crushed Oreo cookies




What a great idea, using cupcakes instead of 1 whole piece of cake. I will have to try this, makes sharing the same amount easier.
