Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 15x10x1-inch baking pan; set aside.
Combine 1 cup butter, water and cocoa in 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat 6-7 minutes or until mixture just comes to a boil. Remove pan from heat; add flour, sugar and salt; mix well. Add sour cream, eggs and baking soda; beat at medium speed, scraping pan often, until well mixed. Add food color; continue beating until well mixed.
Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake 19-21 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.
Cut cake into 5 (3-inch) rows, starting at 15-inch side. Cut through rows diagonally to create 25 (approximately 3 1/4-inch) equilateral triangles. Discard scrapes or eat as snack.
Combine all frosting ingredients except half & half in bowl. Beat at medium speed, adding enough half & half for desired spreading consistency.
Frost 1 triangle at a time; decorate to create devil face. Store in container with tight-fitting lid or cover with plastic food wrap.
*Substitute chocolate sprinkles for black decorator sugar.
- Black decorator gel is available in small tubes in the baking aisle of the supermarket.
- Cake can be cut into rectangles or squares and decorated as devil faces as well.
