A Witch-on-a-Broom Shaped Cake

Ingredients:
Cake-Shaping Strip (from 10 sushi-mat segments)
Heavy-duty aluminum foil
Sheet pan
Prepared cake batter (see the Mexican Chocolate Cake batter or prepare batter from about 1 box of cake mix)
Chocolate frosting/ganache (2 16-oz. containers of chocolate frosting or use Mexican Chocolate Ganache)
1/2 (16-oz.) container of white frosting, dyed orange

Instructions:
1. Line a sheet pan with 2 sheets of aluminum foil. Shape the Cake-Shaping Strip into a shape of a witch on a broomstick. Exaggerate the spatial features, as they'll seem smaller after you unwrap and ice the cake. Wrap the bottom foil layers around the strip. Cut the foil or add extra bottom foil strips as needed to wrap around the strip. Press small balls of loosely packed foil into outer corners or edges if you think that the foil didn't wrap around the portion well enough to prevent cake-batter leakage.

2. Prepare your cake batter. Spray the strip and foil with cooking spray. Pour the cake batter into the prepared "pan" and bake until done. Let the cake cool.

3. Cut away any cake batter that leaked through the strip. Carefully remove the Cake-Shaping Strip. Insert the flat edge of a table knife between the strip and the cake if this helps.

4. Place small sheets (about 6-inches wide) of wax paper under the edges of your cake. Pour/spread the ganache over the cake. Let the ganache harden. Remove the wax paper sheets and wipe up any extra ganache on the tray.

5. Using the orange-dyed frosting, pipe on an outline of the witch and the broom. Microwave remaining ganche for 15 seconds at a time until it is soft enough to pour/spread. Pour/spread on an extra layer of ganache inside the outline of the witch's cape's outline.
