|You gotta have bats and skeletons and tombstones and ghosts. A bowl helps too.|
I have such steep competition that I almost threw up my skeletons and said, “Forget it!” But I can’t quit without a try, so here’s my Creepy Cake N Bake entry,
R.I.P ✟ W.I.P.
Creepy Step 1: Gather all your gear.
Creepy Step 2: Put on your best witch hat and if you have creepy fingers, put those on too. Then take out Betty. She’s perfected the German Chocolate Cake, so why try to outdo perfection, especially when it’s late and you needs some cake . . . fast?
Creepy Step 3: Dump the contents into a mixing bowl, add two eggs, 2/3 C. of oil, 1 1/3 C. water and beat the heck out of the batter for a couple of minutes.
Creepy (and most risky) Step 5: Taste, using long green finger. Yum!
Creepy Step 6: Bake with small chunk of brimstone (about 350 hellish degrees) for 45 minutes. When cool, frost with devilishly creamy chocolate. Frosting must include Vampyre bats and Ghostly peeps melted slowly and painfully in cauldron (not pictured here.) And Viola! R.I.P ✝ W.I.P is complete. Want to see the results? BEWARE. It’s CREEPY!
