Howling Halloween Cake

Edited on Oct 13, 2006

This cake was baked for my son's school cook-off & contest. I won 2_nd place for Best Halloween Cake. This is great for a Fast and easy Halloween cake.


1 box of Yellow cake mix
1 box of Jello Cheesecake pudding
1 can of Libby's pumpkin
1 Tbsp. pumpkin spice
1 can of Cheesecake frosting
Your favorite Favor Halloween candies for decoration.


1 box of Yellow cake mix (I recommend Duncan Hines) Following box instructions except use only 2/3 cup of water.
Add 1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
Get 1 can of Libby's Pumpkin add 2/3 of can (or all of can depending on how much pumpkin flavor you like) to cake mix.
Remember the more Libby's pumpkin you use to cut back on water in cake mix by 1 or 2 teaspoons. Libby's Pumpkin adds moister to cake mix to little of water cake is dry to much cake is wet & falls apart.
Add Jello Cheesecake flavor pudding to cake mix. (Be sure you add dry pudding mix to cake mix.)
Bake cake as instructed on box.
flavor Frosting I used Cheesecake & decorate with your favorite Halloween candies.
I use little pumpkin candy for sides & ghost cookies for top of cake.
This receipt is for the quick get out of the kitchen Mom who has no time to stop & smell the roses.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
