    Pipe icing to outline window shapes on cake; top each window with 1 banana-shaped candy. Push 1 candy wafer, flat side up, into cake at bottom edge of each window to look like windowsill.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Bake and freeze the cake before your big celebration. Tightly cover unfrosted cake, and freeze for up to 2 months. Thaw and decorate the day before your celebration.
  • tip 2
    Create an attractive display by covering a piece of sturdy cardboard with wrapping paper, then plastic food wrap. Stretch and secure with tape. Or cover cardboard with foil or cooking parchment paper.
