Prep Time



Total Time






package Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box
containers Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
to 20 drops green food color
sugar-style ice cream cones with pointed ends
cup marshmallow bits from 1 1/2 cups Lucky Charms® cereal
Betty Crocker® yellow decorating gel or icing (from 0.68- or 4.25-ounce tube)
tablespoons yellow candy-coated fruit-flavored bite-size candies
Yellow paper baking cup, cut in half
Betty Crocker® green sugar, if desired
  1. Heat oven to 350ºF (325ºF for dark or nonstick pan). Make and bake cake as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Cool 10 minutes. Run knife around sides of pan to loosen cake; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  2. Cover large flat tray or piece of cardboard with foil or plastic food wrap. Place cake on center of tray.
  3. Spoon frosting into large bowl. Stir in food color until well blended. Reserve 1/2 cup frosting. Frost cake with remaining frosting. Spread outside of ice cream cones with reserved frosting. Arrange cones with pointed ends up on one corner of cake for trees. Decorate each tree with 12 to 14 marshmallow bits.
  4. Arrange 2 rows of marshmallow bits from trees to within 4 inches of other short end of cake for walking path. At end of walking path, create pot of gold, using candies and baking cup. Sprinkle green sugar around top edges of cake. Store cake loosely covered.

Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
You can use any type of small candies to make the walking path and decorate the trees.
Ice cream cones make great trees! If you want your trees to be darker green than the rest of the cake, add 8 to 10 more drops of green food color to the reserved frosting.
Create an attractive display by covering a piece of sturdy cardboard with wrapping paper, then plastic food wrap. Stretch and secure with tape. Or cover cardboard with foil or cooking parchment paper.
