       Title: Fig Spooks
  Categories: Holiday, Halloween
       Yield: 1 batch
  
       1 pk Cake mix
            -- gold, spice or white
     1/2 c  California dried figs
            -- stemmed
            Soft white butter icing
  
   Make cake according to package instructions, folding in figs which have
   been cut into small pieces.  Fill cup cake pans 2/3 full.  Bake 25 minutes
   at 375 F.  To make Spooks, turn cup cakes upside down.  Place a dab of
   icing in the center, and set whole California dried fig upright with the
   stem standing erect at the top.  Let stand until firm, then ice the whole
   thin with soft white butter icing.  Let icing flow around the base of the
   cake to resemble a sheet.  Mark off slits for eyes.  Weird-looking;
   wonderful-tasting!
