Black Cat Cake:
1 package super moist devil's food cake mix
2 yellow colored M&Ms or yellow gumdrop
Creamy dark chocolate frosting
1 small black gumdrop
black shoestring licorice
Take two cake pans or stainless steel pans of different sizes. One should be bigger than the other. For eg. One of 5 ½ inch and other of 7 ½ inch diameter.
Grease both these pans, only at the bottoms, with a little vegetable oil, just as you would do to a cake pan.
As per the instructions given on the cake mix packet, mix flour, oil, water and egg. Pour the prepared mixture in the pans, in equal depths.
Heat oven to 3500F and keep the cake mix-filled pans in the oven. Bake as per the instructions. Usually 40 to 45 minutes are sufficient. For being sure about the cake being baked properly, insert a toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean, the cake is baked.
Run a blunt knife through the edges of both the pans to free the cakes and invert on the wired cooling rack. Cool it completely in around an hour.
Cut the bigger cake into shapes such as ears, cat's face and tail (refer to the above given diagram). Arrange the cut pieces properly.
After assembling the pieces, frost the top and sides of the cat cake with the dark chocolate frosting. Place the yellow gumdrops or M&Ms to resemble the eyes, and use black gumdrops to make the nose. Use the black shoestring licorice to make the whiskers, eyeballs and front paws.
Store the cake loosely covered. Before just a few minutes to the party feast, remove the cover and place the black cat as the centerpiece of the dining table.
