MAKE CHEESE SPREAD:

On low speed of a mixer, beat cream cheese, 2 cups of cheddar cheese and blue cheese until blended.
Beat in celery, onion and Frank's RedHot sauce.
Cover and refrigerate until firm, at least 4 hours.




SHAPE PUMPKIN:

Turn mixture out onto a sheet of wax paper. Coat hands with cooking spray; form mixture into a pumpkin shape, about 5-inches in diameter.
Roll it in the remaining 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese.
Transfer to serving plate.
Using a skewer, score vertical grooves into the cheese around the pumpkin.

DECORATE PUMPKIN:

In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave the Velveeta on High in 10-second intervals, until softened enough to pipe. Add water, one teaspoon at a time, if necessary, to thin.
Transfer mixture to plastic sandwich bag; snip hole in one corner of bag. Pipe cheese into groves on the pumpkin. Use 2 bay leaves on top for the pumpkin leaves.
