Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C for fan-forced oven). Line 2 x 12-hole muffin trays with paper cupcake cases. Remove the enclosed frosting sachet from the cake mix and reserve for another use.

Make, bake and cool the cake mix as directed for muffins on the box. 

In a bowl, add enough orange food colouring to the vanilla frosting to give a bright orange colour. Using a small spatula, spread the frosting on the top of the cupcakes. 

Pipe a Halloween pumpkin mouth, nose and eyes on each cupcake with the tubes of black writing icing. Use the green writing icing to pipe a green stalk on each cupcake.
