  • 2 Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 8-inch rounds, using water, oil and eggs. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 1 hour. For easier handling, refrigerate or freeze cakes 30 minutes to 1 hour or until firm.

Top with second cake layer, rounded side up. Spread thin layer of orange frosting over cake to seal in crumbs. Refrigerate or freeze 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • 4 Frost top and side of cake with orange frosting, using back of spoon to create texture.

  • 6 Unroll remaining fruit snack; wrap around ice cream cone. Insert skewers at top of cake; attach cones to look like horns.
