3 whole eggs
1 cup water
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 sticks butter (1 cup) softened
1 7 ounce container marshmallow cream, or fluff
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350. Mix cake mix as directed. Place ghost tins on cookie sheet. Pour/scoop cake mix into ghost tins. Cooke for 17-19 minutes. Remove from ghosts from cookie sheet and put on cooling rack. Cool.
Frosting: Beat butter in a large bowl with mixer on medium until creamy. Beat in Marshmallow Fluff. Then, beat in powdered sugar and vanilla. Increase speed to high and beat until fluffy. Makes 3 cups.
Decorate ghosts as desired. Use red hots or mini M & M’s for eyes.
*Chocolate Frosting: Melt 3 oz unsweetened baking chocolate as pkg directs; cool slightly. Follow directions for Vanilla Frosting, adding chocolate when beating the butter and 1 Tbsp milk when adding powdered sugar.
I like this frosting because, well I like marshmallows! It’s a bit sticky but very tasty. I got the recipe for this frosting in an issue of Woman’s Day Magazine.
