Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C for fan-forced oven). Line 1 x 12-hole muffin trays with paper cupcake cases.

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

Using a small spatula spread the chocolate frosting contained within the cake box, on the top of the cakes. Scatter some red or orange and chocolate sprinkles over the top of each cake.

Spoon the vanilla frosting into a large disposable piping bag and snip off the end. Pipe 2 blobs of frosting with peaks on top of each cake for ghosts. Use black writing icing, cake pens or melted chocolate to draw on eyes and mouths. If you don’t have black icing, use chocolate sprinkles or place sugar eyes on each ghost. Be creative with their faces, maybe even getting the kids to help.

Expert Tips

Colour the vanilla frosting with orange or green food colouring gel to create neon ghosts!

To get the piped ‘ghosts’ to peak, quickly lift the piping bag away at a slight angle after piping each blob.
