Although it looks hard, trust us, this cake isn't as difficult to assemble as you may think. Made from boxed cake mix, canned frosting and food dye, you can make and decorate it in under an hour. If you think this cake is fun to look at it, wait until you cut into it!
Serves about 12
Mix cake batter according to directions on box, then divide the batter evenly into four separate bowls.
To give the inside a really 3D, gradient orange, we mixed a few different shades together. We did this by adding different drops of red and yellow together to get three different shades of orange, leaving one bowl uncolored.
If you want, you can just go with one shade of orange to make it simpler.
Grease and flour two 8-inch cake pans. Using a spoon, swirl the different color cake mixes together in each cake pan until each one is filled 3/4 full.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake cakes for about 38-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Let cool on a wire cooling rack for at least an hour or until cool enough to frost.
Level off the top of one cake to make sure it stacks perfectly. Then liberally frost the top of the cake. Carefully place the second cake on top.
Using a cake spatula, spread the rest of the frosting over the cakes, smoothing it out after each addition.
Sprinkle the top edge of the cake with mini chocolate chips.
To make the mini ghosts, scoop the white frosting into a piping bag. Add a small tip and pipe little swirls to the top of the cake.
Add black icing gel to make faces on each ghost.
Then cut the cake and enjoy!
