Ingredients

Cake

  • 1
    box Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ cake mix (any flavor*)
  • Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
  • Tray or cardboard (18x15 inches), covered with wrapping paper and plastic food wrap or foil

Frosting and Decorations

  • 1 1/2
    containers Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy or Whipped vanilla frosting
  • Green food color
  • Yellow food color
  • 1
    roll Betty Crocker™ Fruit Roll-Ups® strawberry chewy fruit snack rolls
  • 4
    fudge-striped cookies with chocolate-covered bottoms
  • 1
    tube (0.68 oz) Betty Crocker™ brown or black decorating gel
  • 8
    ring-shaped hard candies

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Make and bake cake as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Cool 10 minutes. Run knife around side of pan to loosen cake; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour. For easier handling, refrigerate or freeze 30 to 60 minutes or until firm.
  • 2
    Cut cake as shown in diagram. Tint 1/3 cup of the frosting with 3 drops green food color. Arrange pieces on foil-covered tray to form skate as shown in diagram, trimming pieces to fit. Attach pieces of cake with frosting. Frost with a thin layer of frosting to seal in crumbs. Refrigerate or freeze 30 to 60 minutes to set frosting. Frost entire cake.
  • 3
    Outline inner throat and tongue of skate with toothpick. Tint 2 tablespoons white frosting with 2 drops yellow food color; frost inner throat. Frost tongue and back of throat with green frosting. Use fruit snack to form brake, strap and back of throat. Make 4 slits in bottom edge of blade, and insert cookies for wheels. Outline skate and blade with decorating gel. Use ring candies for eyelets and wheel axles. Cut 1/4-inch-wide strips of fruit snack and use for laces. Store loosely covered.

  • *For all chocolate and devil's food cake mixes, use only 1 cup of the water.
  • Ice skating, anyone? Just eliminate the wheels and brake, and you’ll slide through another great celebration.
  • 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.
