Halloween Treat

Tonight for family night we decided to make a Frankenstein cake. It was oooky spooky, and oh so delicious. We had so much fun, especially when we cut Frankenstein into piece and Logan informed that the monster was dead, because it was "just a cake". If monsters taste this good, then count me in.

Frankenstein Cake
1 boxed cake mix
1 can white frosting
1 can chocolate frosting
Green Food Coloring
2 tootsie roll midgies
1 peanut butter cup
2 red gumdrop slices
1 orange gumdrop slice
1 large marshmallow
4 Candy Corns
Prepare cake mix according to package directions, baking in a 9X13 pan. Cool cake. Mix green food coloring into white frosting. Mix and spread on cake for the skin color. In a pastry bag (or cut a hole in the corner of a ziploc) and pipe on the hair, scars, and chin. Cut marshmallow in half and put on 1/2 of one red gumdrop for the eyes. Smoosh the remaining red and orange gumdrop slice for the nose and mouth. Use frosting to make the candy corn stick to the mouth. Slice the peanut butter cup and place the midge and peanut butter cup for the bolts on the neck. Slice and enjoy a bit of monster.
