Ingredients

  • 1 white cake mix
  • water, eggs, and oil listed on cake mix box
  • 3 Tbsp. dark cocoa powder
  • 1 16 oz. can white frosting
  • orange food coloring gel
  • black food coloring gel
  • Halloween sprinkles

Instructions

For the Cake

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a bundt pan with baking spray. 
  • Mix the cake according to directions on the box.
  • Remove 1 cup of cake batter and put it in a separate bowl, and repeat with another cup of cake batter.
  • Use food coloring gel to color one cup of cake batter orange. You will want it to be bold! 
  • Add two Tablespoons of cocoa to the second cup of cake batter. Stir. Add enough food coloring gel to color the batter black.
  • Pour black cake batter in the bottom of prepared bundt pan. Next, pour white batter over black cake batter layer. No need to stir or swirl. Finally, pour orange cake batter over white cake batter layer. Once again, no stirring!
  • Bake according to cake mix instructions. 
  • Let cool for about 10 minutes, then remove from pan and cool on a wire baking rack. 

For the Icing

  • Some people like more icing than others. If you don't just love icing you might want to only use a portion of the can.  Or feel free to load it up! 
  • Once cake has completely cooled leave the cake on wire baking rack and set it over a cookie sheet or piece of waxed paper.
  • Microwave can of frosting for about 10-15 seconds. Using a spoon drizzle desired amount over cake.
  • Color about half of the remaining frosting orange. Drizzle over cake.
  • Add about 1 Tablespoon of cocoa to the remaining frosting. Add black food coloring gel until you get the desired color of black frosting. If necessary microwave for a few more seconds until it's drizzling consistency. If icing is still too thick add a tiny bit of milk. Drizzle over cake.
  • Sprinkle with Halloween sprinkles if desired. Let cool. 
  • Cut in slices and serve!
