Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Grease bottoms and sides of 2 (8-inch) round cake pans with shortening or cooking spray.
  • 2 Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 8-inch rounds. 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.
  • 3 On serving plate, place 1 cake layer, rounded side down. Spread with 1/2 cup of the frosting. Top with second cake layer, rounded side up. Frost top and sides of cake with remaining frosting.
  • 4 On sugared surface, use rolling pin to roll gumdrops into oval shapes.
  • 5 Place 23 gumdrop ovals around the edge of the top of the cake, overlapping slightly. Create a second circle inside the first circle using 15 gumdrops. Repeat once more in the center of the cake with the remaining 7 gumdrops. Place a miniature marshmallow in the center of the cake to form the center of the flower.
