1
(18.25-oz.) pkg. pudding-included chocolate cake mix
1 1/4
cups water
1/3
cup oil
3
eggs
1
(16-oz.) can chocolate frosting
2
green gumdrops
2
small pieces black licorice
2
miniature milk chocolate covered peanut butter cups
1

1

  • 1 Prepare and bake cake mix as directed on package in two 9-inch round cake pans using water, oil and eggs. Cool 45 minutes or until completely cooled.
  • 2 Place cooled cake rounds side by side with sides touching on 18x11-inch serving platter or foil-covered cardboard. From 1 cake round, cut crescent-shaped piece from outer edge for tail; remaining portion of cake round is the head. (See diagram.) Cut 2 small triangles from each end of "tail;" place on top of "head" for ears. Place "tail" to side of "body," trimming to fit as needed.
  • 3 Spread frosting over cake. (If frosting is difficult to spread, heat frosting for a few seconds in microwave.) Cut green gumdrops and place on "head" for eyes; top with licorice pieces. Place peanut butter cups and red gumdrop on "head" for "nose". Place strip of fruit snack around "neck" for collar; add chocolate coin for tag. Break each piece of spaghetti into 3 equal pieces; insert at an angle next to "nose" for whiskers.
