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.

Using a small spatula spread the chocolate frosting 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 the black writing icing to pipe on eyes and mouths.

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.
