Prepare as directed, using any flavour cake mix.
Prepare cupcakes and frosting as directed, omitting the green food colouring. Arrange cupcakes in triangular shape on platter, with 1 cupcake in the top row, 2 cupcakes in the second row, 3 cupcakes in each of the third and fourth rows, 4 cupcakes in the fifth row and 6 cupcakes in each of the sixth and seventh rows. Reserve 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp. of the frosting. Spoon 3/4 cup of the remaining frosting into separate bowl; stir in 4 drops yellow food colouring and 2 drops red food colouring until well blended. Add 6 drops yellow food colouring to larger amount of the remaining frosting. Frost the 6 cupcakes in the top three rows with the white frosting; frost the 7 cupcakes in the middle two rows with the orange frosting and frost the 11 cupcakes in the bottom 2 rows with the yellow frosting. Keep refrigerated.
Let your imagination run wild and create your own unique cake. Just assemble the cupcakes into a shape such as a ghost, jack-o'-lantern or witch face, then frost and decorate. It's easy!

I made this last year for my grandson's grade 3 class. They went crazy for it. Making it again this year for grade 4 class. He helps to make the cupcakes, AND helps to decorate, so not terribly difficult. It is Halloween after all. Have fun. We have fun making AND eating. Get your children involved.
