Melt chocolates (separately) as directed on packages; spoon into separate resealable plastic bags. Use felt marker to draw 7x5-inch skull shape on piece of paper; tape onto piece of cardboard. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag filled with semi-sweet chocolate; use to trace around skull pattern, then fill in skull with remaining semi-sweet chocolate. Refrigerate 10 min. or until firm. Remove plastic wrap and chocolate skull from cardboard; invert skull onto center of cake. Discard plastic wrap.
