Heat oven to 350°F for shiny metal or glass pans (or 325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Spray bottoms and sides of 4 (8-inch) square pans with baking spray with flour. In large bowl, beat both cake mixes with amounts of water, oil and eggs for both mixes as directed on box. Divide batter among pans (about 21⁄3 cups for each pan). Refrigerate 2 pans of batter while 2 pans bake. 2. Bake 2 pans at a time, following times on cake mix box for 8-inch round pans. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. 3. Cut off domed top from each cake so they will be flat when stacked. On tray, place cake A (see diagram); spread with 1⁄3 cup chocolate frosting. Top with cake B; spread with 1⁄3 cup chocolate frosting. Top with cake C; spread with 1⁄3 cup chocolate frosting. 4. Cut fourth cake into quarters. Place one quarter (piece 1) on top of stacked cakes; spread top with 1 tablespoon chocolate frosting. Cut second quarter horizontally in half; place half of second quarter on top of first quarter and spread top with 1 tablespoon chocolate frosting. Cut third quarter into 2-inch square; place on center of cake stack. Freeze cake 1 hour. (Discard remaining cake or reserve for another use.) 5. Reserve 2 tablespoons frosting in resealable foodstorage plastic bag. Spread remaining chocolate frosting over entire stacked cake. Place fudge-dipped cone upside down on center of cake. Place 4 regular ice cream cones upside down on corners of cake. 6. Dip edges of miniature cones in white decorating icing; sprinkle with colored sugar. Place upside down on top of larger cones. Top each cone with candy star, attaching with small amount of white icing. 7. Cut 1 wafer cookie in half. Snip tiny corner from bag of frosting; pipe frosting on 2 whole and 1 half cookies for window panes. Place windows on castle. Insert ends of pretzels slightly into cake for drawbridge. Place 2 cookies on drawbridge for door; press tops slightly against cake. Add cinnamon candies to doors and front of cake. Add licorice for bridge wire. 8.
