  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom and sides of 13x9-inch pan with shortening or spray with cooking spray. Make and bake cake as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan, using water, oil and eggs. Cool 10 minutes. Remove cake from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 2
    On 13x9-inch cake board or platter, place cake upside-down. Cover surface of cake with 1 container of the frosting, using off-set spatula. Refrigerate cake 45 minutes or until frosting is firm.
  • 3
    Apply second coat of frosting to cake, evening surface and filling any gaps that may be present at bottom edge of cake.
  • 4
    Score top of cake with dull edge of large knife to make 12 squares. Decorate alternate squares with multicolored sanding sugar. Fill in remaining squares with clear sanding sugar.
  • 5
    For flowers, cut each marshmallow in half using clean kitchen scissors. Dip green marshmallow halves into green sanding sugar; dip yellow marshmallow halves into yellow sanding sugar. The sugar will coat cut edges of marshmallows. Place dime-size dot of frosting in center of each white square on cake. Arrange 5 marshmallow “petals” into flower shape, sugared-side-up, on top of each frosting dot; press to adhere. Press yellow sugar pearl into center of each flower. Store cake loosely covered.

Expert Tips

  • Blue and pink sanding sugars can be used to create a baby blanket cake for showers.
  • Yellow candy-coated chocolate candies can be used for the flower centers.
  • Use any flavor Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® cake mix in place of the white cake mix.
  • White miniature marshmallows can be used if you can’t find multicolored marshmallows.
