.The Monster Bride.

The Monster Bride Halloween Cake Recipe

1 can (12 oz) vanilla frosting
Green paste or gel food color
8 Twinkies Snack Cakes (from a 15-oz box)
1 can (12 oz) milk-chocolate frosting
White, red and black jelly beans
1 tube black decorating icing

1. Have ready 2 plastic pastry bags and a 1/4-in. basket weave piping tip. Unwrap snack cakes; place on a baking sheet lined with nonstick foil.

2. Spoon 1/2 the vanilla frosting into a microwave-safe bowl and tint pale green. Microwave (stir every 5 to 10 seconds) just until frosting is thinned to a glaze.

3. Taking care not to frost flat bottom of snack cake, dip half of each cake into frosting to cover one end. Place on lined baking sheet; refrigerate until set. Cover and reserve remaining green frosting.

4. Fit piping tip in a pastry bag. Add chocolate frosting; pipe hair on unfrosted part of cakes. Cut white jelly beans in half for eyes and nose; attach with remaining green frosting. Cut red and black jelly beans in half. Attach red halves for rouged cheeks, black halves for bolts.

5. Using black tube frosting, place a dot of frosting in center of eyes, then outline eyes and pipe on eyelashes and a smiling mouth.

6. Wash piping tip and place in other pastry bag. Add remaining white frosting and pipe squiggly white streaks in hair on 2 sides as shown. Refrigerate until serving to firm up frosting.
