Pull Apart Pumpkin Treat

Put together a bunch of carrot cake cupcakes and decorate them as one to get this super cute Jack-O Lantern Pumpkin Pull Apart. In fact if you don't put the face on makes for a super cute Thanksgiving Treat as well. Hope you all enjoy

Mini–cupcake liners
1 box (18 oz) carrot cake mix
1 can  (8 oz) crushed pineapple       
1 cup  sweetened flaked coconut 
4 1/2 cup(s) vanilla or cream cheese frosting
Orange and green gel food color
1 cup chocolate frosting    
 Heat oven to 350ºF. Line miniature muffin pans with paper liners. (Don't worry if you have only one pan. After baking a batch, remove baked cupcakes to rack. Then just place the pan in your freezer to cool down quickly before lining and baking the next batch.) Prepare cake mix as package directs; stir in crushed pineapple and coconut until blended. Spoon a Tbsp into each muffin cup. Bake 15 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cupcakes cool in pan on wire rack 5 minutes before removing to rack. Cool completely. Tint 4 cups vanilla frosting orange. Tint remaining 1⁄2 cup vanilla frosting green. Spoon green and chocolate frosting into separate quart-size ziptop bags and snip off a tiny corner for piping. On a 20 x 16-in. flat platter, arrange cupcakes into a pumpkin shape. Frost body of pumpkin orange. With skewer, sketch face onto pumpkin as a guide; pipe face and stem with chocolate frosting. Pipe green frosting for leaves and vines.
