TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling
MAKES: 12-16 servings


  • 2 packages spice cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 ice cream cake cone (about 3 inches tall)
  • 4 cans (15.60 ounces each) Pillsbury Happy Birthday Funfetti Orange All Star Vanilla frosting
  • 2 Oreo cookies
  • 1 package (24 ounces) ready-to-use rolled black fondant


  1. Prepare and bake cakes according to package directions using two 10-in. fluted tube pans. Cool.
  2. Cut thin slice off bottom of each cake. Spread one cake bottom with frosting; press flat sides together to make a pumpkin shape. Place a foil ball in the center to support the "stem"; top with an ice cream cake cone. Frost cake with remaining frosting.
  3. To decorate face: Roll out fondant to 1/8-in. thickness; cut into desired shapes for mouth and nose. Remove tops from two Oreo cookies; cut half-circles in filling for eyes. Press cookies and fondant into frosting to make the face. Yield: 12-16 servings.
