Pour the cold water on top and mix until incorporated. Pour batter into your USA Pan 8" square cake pan. Bake for approximately 30 minutes until cake is set. Remove from oven to cooling rack. This cake tastes great even without frosting! If making the graveyard cake, once cake is cool, frost with your favorite chocolate frositng, or use our recipe. Once frosted, we scattered the cookie crumbs over the top. Then, we've added our "graveyard" decorations. The tombstones, ghosts, pumpkins and worms. Then, we scattered some green colored sugar around for grass. ENJOY!!
