  • Prep Time 30 min
  • Total Time 1 hr 35 min
  • Servings 12



box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ French vanilla cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
cup Betty Crocker™ Decors rainbow mix


container Betty Crocker™ Whipped whipped cream frosting
cup Betty Crocker™ Decors rainbow mix


cinnamon graham cracker squares (3-inch)
container Betty Crocker™ Whipped whipped cream frosting
Additional Betty Crocker™ Decors rainbow mix




  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Generously spray bottoms and sides of 2 (9-inch) round cake pans with baking spray with flour.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat cake mix, oil and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Gently fold in 1/2 cup decors. Divide batter evenly between pans.
  • 3 Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until cake springs back when touched lightly in center. Remove from oven to cooling racks; cool in pans 5 minutes. Turn cakes out of pans onto cooling racks; cool completely, about 45 minutes.
  • 4 Meanwhile, in medium bowl, stir together 1 container frosting and 1/3 cup decors.
  • 5 When cakes are cool, level cakes with large serrated knife. Place 1 cake layer on serving plate or cake stand. Top with thin layer of frosting. Place second cake layer on top. Use remaining frosting to cover sides and top of cake.
  • 6 Chop graham crackers into pieces with large knife; place randomly on sides of cake.
  • 7 Transfer 1/2 container (2/3 cup) frosting to decorating bag fitted with large star tip. Pipe 12 rosettes around top edge of cake.
  • 8 Use small round cookie cutter to cut 12 rounds from remaining graham crackers. Place additional decors in small bowl; place remaining frosting in separate small bowl. Dunk each cracker round in frosting then dip into decors. Insert each dipped cookie upright into 1 rosette on top of cake.
  • 9 Sprinkle top of cake with additional decors. Store cake loosely covered at room temperature.


Expert Tips

If graham crackers are too crispy to cut cleanly, place them in a zipper-topped plastic bag with two pieces of white bread for 2 to 4 hours. This will make them soft and easy to cut.

A chocolate Dunkaroos® version can be made by using Betty Crocker® Whipped chocolate frosting in place of the whipped cream frosting.
