    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Spray 6 (10-ounce) straight sided ramekins with cooking spray. Place ramekins on 15x10x1-inch baking sheet; set aside. Make cake mix as directed on box, using water, oil and eggs. Pour about 3/4 cup batter into each ramekin.

    Bake 22 to 26 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from ramekins to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

    Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on low speed until creamy. Beat in powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, until smooth. Add vanilla and milk, 1 to 2 tablespoon at a time, until frosting is piping consistency, adding milk as necessary. Beat in food color.

    Using serrated knife, cut rounded tops off each cake to make a level surface. Place, cut sides down, on serving platter. Cut each cake in half horizontally to make 2 layers per cake. Spread 3 tablespoons frosting on the bottom half of each cake. Place remaining cake halves, bottom sides up, over frosting
  • 5
    Use pastry bag fitted with a large 2D star tip to pipe remaining frosting around and up sides and on tops of cakes to resemble frills. Top with edible pearls.

Expert Tips

  • If you don't have ramekins, spoon batter into 8 jumbo muffin cups instead of the ramekins. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool, cut in half and decorate as directed.
