LOCATION

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Grease or spray two 8- or 9-inch round cake pans. In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Divide batter between pans. Bake and cool cake as directed on box for 8- or 9-inch rounds. For easier handling, freeze cooled cake 45 minutes or until firm.
  • 2 Cut 1 cake in half lengthwise, making 2 half-circles. Sculpt 1 half-circle into a head and the other half-circle into a tail. For body, cut 1-inch slice from edge of remaining whole cake. From cut edge, cut out a small inverted U-shaped piece. Place body on tray; arrange head and tail pieces next to body.
  • 3 Spoon frosting into large bowl. Stir in enough food color until desired green color. Attach cake pieces with a small amount of frosting. Frost cake with a thin layer of frosting to seal in crumbs. Refrigerate or freeze cake 30 to 60 minutes to set frosting. Frost entire cake.
  • 4 Decorate with yellow candies. Add chocolate chips for eyes. Store loosely covered.
