Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom and sides of two 9- or 8-inch round cake pans with baking spray with flour. In large bowl, beat cake ingredients on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pans.
  • 2 Bake and cool as directed on box for 9- or 8-inch rounds.
  • 3 Meanwhile, in small microwavable bowl, microwave candy coating uncovered on High 1 minute, stirring twice, until melted and smooth. Stir in 2 teaspoons oil. Spoon about half the melted coating into another bowl; stir in 2 or 3 drops food color to tint light pink.
  • 4 Line 6-oz custard cup or other small bowl with foil. Pour half of the untinted coating into foil-lined bowl. Drop half of the pink coating on top; pull a knife through coatings to make marbled design. Repeat with remaining untinted and tinted coatings, adding on top of marbled coatings. Refrigerate about 20 minutes or until set; remove from refrigerator. (If refrigerated longer, let stand at room temperature 10 minutes to soften.)
  • 5 In large bowl, beat butter, shortening, 1 teaspoon almond extract, the powdered sugar and 4 tablespoons of the milk with electric mixer on low speed until well blended. Beat on medium speed, adding enough of the remaining 1 tablespoon milk until fluffy and spreadable.
  • 6 Place 1 cake layer, rounded side down, on serving plate; frost top. Top with second layer, rounded side up. Frost side and top of cake.
  • 7 Remove coating from bowl; peel off foil. With vegetable peeler, make curls by pulling peeler around outside edge of block of coating. Place curls on top of cake. Store loosely covered.
