2 round chocolate cookies or 2 chocolate covered peppermint patties (2-1/2 inches in diameter)
8" oven-going skillet - those with handles that can withstand oven temperatures (check the manufacturer's instructions). If you do not have an 8 inch oven-going skillet, bake the cake in an 8 inch round baking pan. Remove and cool the cake, then slip it into an ordinary 8 inch skillet and decorate.
Grease and 8 inch oven-going skillet. pour batter into skillet and bake in a 350° for 30 to 35 minutes or till a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in skillet on wire rack.
Reserve 1/2 cup of the frosting. Combine the remaining frosting and the cinnamon; spread atop cake to the edge of the skillet.
Spread the reserved white frosting atop cake to form two "egg whites". Place apricot "yolks: in the center of "egg whites". place cookies or mint patties alongside "eggs" to resemble sausage patties.
