The cutest “scary” cake you ever ate!
Prepare your cake according to package instructions then bake it in two 9-inch round cake pans. When done allow them to cool thoroughly.
Once cooled, remove your cakes from the pan and stack them on your serving platter. In a medium-sized bowl mix the vanilla frosting with the green food coloring and frost your cake. Make the final layer around the cake as smooth as you can.
Line a small plate with wax paper.
Take two dollops of the melted white chocolate and place them on the wax paper. Smooth the white chocolate out to make two large eyes, about 2 inches in diameter. Now take two of the peanut M&M’s (I used brown for the eyes) and place them in the middle of both of the white chocolate “eyes”.
Place the plate with the eyes in the fridge to harden while you decorate the rest of the cake.
Take about half a cup of chocolate frosting and place it in a sandwich size Ziplock bag. Cut a very small cut in the corner of your bag (you can also use a piping bag fitted with a small round tip). Set the bag aside for now.
Take a large dollop of chocolate frosting and place it on the center of the frosted cake. Working from the center out use a serrated frosting knife and smooth the chocolate frosting over the top of the cake. Go over the edge and down the side a little, continue all the way around the cake making his “hair” longer in the back (see photo).
Remove your eyes from the fridge. Place a little frosting on the back of both eyes and stick them on your cake in the spot where you’d like your eyes to be.
Take your last peanut M&M and stick it under the eyes as his nose. (I used brown, but green would be cute too!)
Now take your piping bag and draw on his mouth and scar.
Break or cut your Twix bar in half and stick one half on either side of the cake to make his bolts.
