Be sure to freeze cake before cutting and assembling this cute Halloween cake!
Heat oven to 350°F. Line bottom of 13x9-inch baking pan with waxed paper; spray with no-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
Place all cake ingredients except sprinkles in bowl; beat as directed on package. Stir in orange sprinkles.
Pour batter into prepared cake pan. Bake 29-32 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 1 hour. Cover with aluminum foil; freeze in pan 2 hours.
Combine powdered sugar and 3/4 cup butter in bowl; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Continue beating, adding enough half & half for desired frosting consistency.
Remove cake from freezer; invert cake onto large cutting board. Carefully peel off waxed paper. (If cake is not releasing out of pan, place warm, damp dish towel over inverted pan to help release cake.)
Cut cake according to diagram using ruler or straight edge to guide knife.
Place 2 small triangles together, top-side down, on large rectangle platter or baking sheet covered with aluminum foil, to form 1 large triangle. Frost top of triangle. Carefully place large triangle on top of frosted triangle. Trim all edges, if necessary, to even them out. Working quickly, frost cake.
Use knife tip or toothpick to draw lines for separating decorator sugars. To keep decorator sugar colors from blending, cover sections that are not being sprinkled with waxed paper. Generously sprinkle wide end of triangle with yellow sugar, middle section with orange sugar and pointed section with white sugar. Decorate sides of cake with candy corn, if desired.

Let’s be honest – I’m always looking for quick meal ideas. By the time I get home from work, I have about a half hour to throw dinner together and get it on the table. Most (okay, ALL of the time) I have an unhappy one-year-old pulling at my leg as if to say, “Mom, why is there not food on my high chair tray yet?!” So, when it comes to meals, the quicker the better.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
You know the old saying, “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream,” right? Well, ice cream is a favorite, but if there is any summertime sweet treat that I find to be scream-worthy , it is, hands down, the s’more. More ...
