Nutrition has been calculated on the cake and frosting only for this recipe.
Save the scraps! The cake scraps can be crumbled and sprinkled over ice cream or made into cake pops. Visit bettycrocker.com for a variety of cake pop recipes.
The first layer of frosting for this cake coats and sets the crumbs so they don’t combine with the final frosting. Freezing the cake makes frosting easier.
Don't worry if you didn't get your cake cut out perfectly. Use a little extra frosting to smooth out those not so perfect parts. Once you assemble and decorate, it will look doggone cute!
When swirling the frosting with the toothpick, wipe off extra frosting that gathers on the tip or grab a new one to keep the design consistent.
Inserting the sucker just before serving will prevent the color from the sucker from melting onto the frosting.
