Kathleen describes this cake as: “made of rich red velvet cake, frosted with cream cheese frosting, and drenched in sweetened coconut. With fangs made of frosting and chocolate horns, he’s irresistible!”

Here is the recipe!

  • 1 box red velvet cake mix
  • Ingredients needed for cake mix
  • Cream cheese frosting (homemade or store bought)
  • 1-2 cups sweetened coconut
  • Melted chocolate for horns
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Prepare your miniature spring form cake pans. (mine were 5 inch)
  3. Prepare the cake batter according to box and distribute among pans to bake one layer at a time.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Once cakes are cooled after baking frost the entire outside, leaving the entire top naked.
  6. Spread melted chocolate on top of cakes and put in fridge to harden.
  7. Using a piping bag, pipe the frosting on top of the hardened chocolate into a “jack-o-lantern” face.
  8. Drench the cake with the coconut.
  9. Pipe some large eyes with the frosting, and using a #2 wilton tip, carefully pipe some sharp fangs.
  10. Using the melted chocolate (or chocolate frosting) pipe lips around the mouth.
  11. Using melted chocolate make horns on some parchment paper and harden in the freezer before applying to the wampa face.
  12. Blood is optional :)
