  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Generously spray bottoms and sides of 2 (9-inch) round cake pans with baking spray with flour.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cake mix, oil and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Gently fold in 1/2 cup decors. Divide batter evenly between pans.
  • 3
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until cake springs back when touched lightly in center. Remove from oven to cooling racks; cool in pans 5 minutes. Turn cakes out of pans onto cooling racks; cool completely, about 45 minutes.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, stir together 1 container frosting and 1/3 cup decors.
  • 5
    When cakes are cool, level cakes with large serrated knife. Place 1 cake layer on serving plate or cake stand. Top with thin layer of frosting. Place second cake layer on top. Use remaining frosting to cover sides and top of cake.
  • 6
    Cut graham crackers into pieces with large knife; place randomly on sides of cake.
  • 7
    Transfer 1/2 container (2/3 cup) frosting to decorating bag fitted with large star tip. Pipe 12 rosettes around top edge of cake.
  • 8
    Use small round cookie cutter to cut 12 rounds from remaining graham crackers. Place additional decors in small bowl; place remaining frosting in separate small bowl. Dunk each cracker round in frosting then dip into decors. Insert each dipped cracker upright into 1 rosette on top of cake.
  • 9
    Sprinkle top of cake with additional decors. Store cake loosely covered at room temperature.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Substitute Betty Crocker™ Whipped Chocolate Frosting for the Betty Crocker™ Whipped Cream Frosting and chocolate graham crackers for the regular graham crackers to give this cake a delicious chocolate twist!
  • tip 2
    If graham crackers are too crispy to cut cleanly, place them in a zipper-topped plastic bag with two pieces of white bread for 2 to 4 hours. This will make them soft and easy to cut.
  • tip 3
    We like to serve the Layered Confetti Celebration Cake the same day, as the graham crackers will start to soften with storage.
