Haunted House Cake

1 package (18-1/4 ounces) chocolate cake mix
1 package (18-1/4 ounces) white cake mix
2 Nutter Butter cookies
3/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup butter, softened
6 cups confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons milk
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 milk chocolate candy bar (1.55 ounces)
1 orange M&M miniature baking bit
Orange liquid or paste food coloring
1 Cup Golden Grahams cereal
Stick of Orange-striped fruit gum
Chocolate sprinkles
1/4 cup gold rock candy
14- x 10-inch serving board or platter
Purple gift wrap
Clear cellophane

Prepare chocolate cake batter according to package directions. Spoon 3 cups into a greased and floured 8-in. x 4-in. x 2-in. loaf pan. Set remaining batter aside.

Bake loaf cake at 350 for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

Prepare white cake batter and pour into a greased and floured 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Drop reserved chocolate batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto white batter. Cut through batter with a knife to swirl. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

To assemble, place the marbled cake on a large platter or covered board (about 14 in. x 10 in.). Level top of chocolate cake. Cut chocolate cake in half widthwise. Referring to photo above for position, place one half on the corner of the marbled cake for the house.

For the roof, cut remaining half of chocolate cake in half diagonally. Position the two halves together so they form a triangular shape on top of house. Cut each cookie in half widthwise and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and butter. Gradually add the confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla, mixing until smooth. Frost house, roof, sides of marble cake and cookie halves.

Break candy bar into rectangles. Place one on front of house for door (save remaining pieces for another use). Place a small dot of frosting on left side of door and attach M&M baking bits for doorknob. Tint remaining frosting orange; frost top of marble cake.

Place cereal on roof of house for shingles. Cut gum in half widthwise and then lengthwise. Place two pieces above the door for shutters. Use sprinkles to outline the window.

For tombstones, attach sprinkles to the cookies to read "RIP" and "BOO". Place cookies on the cake, lightly pushing them into frosting.

Place rock candy in front of door for a walkway. Makes 12-15 servings.

Crafter thought: Try any goodies you have in the cupboard, such as candy corns for the roof shingles, M&M's for the stone walkway and candy pumpkins for a patch. Finished size: Cake measures about 13 inches long x 9 inches wide x 7 inches high.

4-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
24 candy pumpkins

In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugar, pumpkin, oil and eggs. Combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and cloves; gradually add to pumpkin mixture and mix well.

Pour into a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

For frosting, in a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla until smooth. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar. Spread over cake; garnish with candy pumpkins. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Makes 24 servings.
