Halloween Food - pumpkin cake w/chocolate mice
Two bundt cakes leveled and stacked bottom to bottom. An ice cream cone for the stem. Dense poundcakes work best for this, however, I've done it with a store bought mix as well -- the cake is just more fragile so you have to be gentle when handling it. Frost up and down using a wide spatchula for best effect. Plain ole canned frosting works fine. I use the orange gel coloring in jars you find in the cake decorating section to get a nice rich orange color for the frosting.
