Taking you cake batter prepare as it states on the back of the package. Once done, take your Vanilla Instant pudding and apply to the rest of the cake batter. Grab your muffin cups and paper-line them. Carefully spoon your cake batter into each of your 24 muffin cups and bake as stated on the back of the package. Once completed allow to the cool for 5 to 10 minutes. While your cupcakes are cooling, grab a medium bowl and mix your cream cheese, butter, and teaspoon of vanilla with an electric mixer on medium speed until everything has been combined and smooth. Begin to gradually add your sugar, beating after every addition of sugar. Take your cupcakes and begin to arrange them in the picture seen above from Kraft’s Recipes. Once you’ve gotten the shape down, spread your frosting on top. Take 2 Oreos and place them onto the cake as eyes. Grab your decorating gel and outline a mouth for the ghost. Crumble your remaining Oreos and sprinkle into the outline of the ghost’s mouth. Then store in refrigerator until ready to be served!
