    For the Cobweb Cake:
    1. Make cake according to package instructions. Bake in a long bread pan. When cooled, melt the chocolate frosting in the microwave for 30 seconds and pour over cake. Melt 3 cups of mini marshmallows in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir to melt. Wait for about 1 minute and then dip your fingers into the marshmallow cream and stretch and pull over the cake. (Disposable plastic gloves make this process less messy.) Add skeletons or other spooky decorations on and around the cake.
