Jack-O-Lantern Cake

1 (2-layer size) yellow cake mix
1 (3/4) pkg. vanilla flavor instant pudding
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. butter, softened
1 drop red food coloring
4 drops yellow food coloring
1 tsp. vanilla
About 4 1/4 c. powdered sugar, sifted
1 Tbsp. green colored sugar
2 miniature marshmallows, cut in half
5 Oreo cookies, divided

Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 24 cupcakes, blending dry pudding mix into batter before spooning into prepared cups. Cool completely. Beat cream cheese, butter, vanilla and food colorings in medium bowl with mixer until well blended. Gradually beat in sugar until well blended. Arrange cupcakes on large platter to resemble a stemmed pumpkin (two cupcakes will make the stem). Frost with creamed cheese mixture. Use green colored sugar to fill in stem. Add two cookies for eyes. Crush remaining cookies, sprinkle over cake for the mouth. Arrange marshmallow halves in mouth for the teeth
