Christmas Tree Cake


1 box Betty Crocker® Gluten Free cake mix (any flavor)
  Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
2 containers Betty Crocker® Whipped fluffy white frosting
  Green colored sugar
3 candy canes (gluten free), broken to remove curved ends
  Assorted small gumdrops (gluten free), if desired


1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Make and cool cake as directed on box for 13×9-inch pan.
2. Freeze cake uncovered 1 hour for easier frosting. From the middle of one short side, make a diagonal cut to each corner on opposite side, making 3 triangular pieces. Make tree shape by arranging 2 outer pieces with straight 13-inch sides together on foil-covered tray, cutting board or cardboard; frost top. Place remaining center piece on top.
3. Frost sides and top of cake. Press candy cane pieces in end of tree to make trunk. Sprinkle with colored sugar to look like boughs. Arrange gumdrops on cake to look like lights or ornaments. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Follow High Altitude cake mix directions for 13×9-inch pan.



Special Touch
Want a green Christmas tree? Tint frosting by stirring in a few drops of green food color before frosting the cake. Create “tinsel” by sprinkling frosting with gold edible glitter.
