    Jessica, the Black Magic Cake (http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Black-Magic-Cake/Detail.aspx) is excellent if you like dark chocolate. If you prefer another flavor, simply back the cake in a bunt pan and ice it with orange frosting. Stick an inverted ice cream cone in the hole at the top and ice with green icing. Add edible leaves and you have a half pumpkin. If you want a whole pumpkin, bake two bunt cakes and place one on top of the other so they form a whole pumpkin. Ice and add details. :-)

    Jessica- this is my sons' favorite halloween cake-Chocolate Dirt Cake: bake a 9x13" chocolate cake,frost w/1 pkg. chocolate pudding,top w/crushed Oreos or chocolate wafer cookies and push gummy worms into "dirt". U can also make "tombstones" from choc. graham crackers and add scary cats-animal crackers! I also added tiny candy pumkins for a little color! Have fun with it! Happy Halloween!
