It takes the cake……………

If a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use some of the dry cake mix instead. The cake will absorb the mix, and you won’t have a floury mess on the outside when the cake is done.

It’s all treats and no tricks with this recipe for a Great Pumpkin Cake. Linus would be so proud of this Dessert! Another good one from the CooksRecipes website. Check out Cooks for delicious and healthy recipes for Soups, Salads, Entrees, Desserts and more! Check it out today (http://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html).

 

Great Pumpkin Cake
This fun and festive cake that looks like a pumpkin is the perfect treat for a Halloween party!

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (2-layer size) package cake mix – any flavor
1 (8-ounce) package PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
4 cups powdered sugar
Few drops each: green, red and yellow food colorings
1 COMET cup (flat-bottom ice cream cone)

Cooking Directions:

Prepare and bake cake mix in a (12-cup) fluted tube pan as directed on package. Cool 10 minutes in pan. Remove from pan to wire rack; cool completely.
Beat cream cheese and butter in small bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy after each addition. Remove 1/2 cup of the frosting; place in small bowl. Add green food coloring; stir until well blended. Spread half of the green frosting onto outside of ice cream cone; set aside. Set remaining green frosting aside for later use.
Add red and yellow food colorings to remaining white frosting to tint it orange. Place cake, rounded-side up, on serving plate. Spread with orange frosting to resemble pumpkin. Invert ice cream cone in hole in top of cake for the “pumpkin’s stem”. Pipe the reserved green frosting in vertical lines down side of cake.*
Makes 24 servings.

*How To Pipe Frosting: Turn a resealable plastic bag into a handy piping bag for professional-looking decorated cakes. Simply spoon the frosting into the bag and seal the bag. Cut off a tiny piece from one of the bottom corners of the bag. Twist the bag at the top and holding the bag with one hand, guide the tip with the other. When you’re done, the whole bag goes right into the garbage for easy cleanup!

* For a Crowd: Serve this festive cake at your next Halloween party! Double all ingredients. Prepare batter as directed; pour half of the batter into each of two fluted tube pans. Bake and cool as directed. Trim cake tops to flatten; reserve trimmings for snacking or another use. Place one cake, rounded-side down, on serving plate. Spread with thin layer of frosting. Top with remaining cake, rounded-side up, to resemble a large pumpkin. Frost and decorate as directed. Makes 48 servings.
