Step 1
Start by baking the cupcakes using your favourite cake flavour. After the cupcakes are cool, frost with white icing to which you have added a couple of drops of electric green gel to make the bright green.

Step 2
To make the cake pops, choose your favourite Duff Cake Mix, preheat oven to 160°C (325°F). Grease and flour baking pan. Mix ingredients together for 1 minute or until well blended. Bake for 25-30 minutes (baking times vary with ovens). Let the cake cool.

Step 3
Crumble the cooled cake into a large mixing bowl. Add packet of icing and mix into the crumbled cake. Take spoon-fulls of the mixture and roll into ball shapes. Set on cookie sheet. Freeze for 15 minutes.

Step 4
Melt the melting chocolates in microwave oven for 1 minute 45 seconds (time may vary with microwaves). Dip one end of the stick into the chocolate and insert that end into the bottom of the cake pop and set cake side down on cookie sheet.

Step 5
Dip the cake pop into the chocolate, fully submersing them to cover the entire cake pop. You can also use a spoon to scoop the melted chocolate onto the cake pop rotating the cake pop slightly as you cover the entire surface with chocolate. Remove and tap on side of bowl to remove the excess chocolate from the pop.

Step 6
To make the ghosts decorations use fondant, roll out white fondant and lay over cooled cake pop. Shape red, black and white fondant to create the witch legs. Use black and red fondant to create the ghost eyes and bows.
