12-16, Makes one 9-inch cake
  • 1 purchased 9-inch angel food cake
  • 2 recipes Seven Minute Frosting at room temperature
  • Small sugar candy eyes, 2 for each ghost
  • 10-inch cake plate for serving
  • Small offset spatula
  • Disposable decorating bag
  • Assorted eggcups and salt wells, for serving
  1. Place the cake on the cake plate. Reserve 1 cup of frosting to make additional ghost figures. Using an offset spatula, fill the hole in the center of the cake with frosting and then spread frosting over the top and sides in a wavy pattern.

  2. Add the reserved frosting to the decorating bag; snip off the tip of the bag to create a 1/8-to 1/4 inch opening.

  3. Referring to the photo, pipe as many ghosts as you like onto and around the cake and into the eggcups. For each, apply pressure until the ghost is the desired size; stop the pressure and lift off the bag. Add two candy eyes to each ghost.
