2 boxes of red velvet cake mix

2 16 oz canisters of black frosting

1 bag of black colored chocolate

Cake pop sticks



  1. Bake both boxes of red velvet cakes into 3 separate pans.

  4. Cover the entire cake in black frosting.
  5. Melt chocolate according to package.
  6. On wax paper, create 3 triangles of chocolate for the nose and ears of the cat. Make sure they are thick so they don’t crumble and let cool.

  8. Place the chocolate ears on top of the cake sticking up and place frosting on the back of the nose, sticking it between the whiskers.
