– 1 package yellow cake mix
– 8 ounces whipped topping
– 15 large marshmallows cut in half
– 1 package strawberry gelatin
– 1 pink jelly bean
– black decorating gel
– pink decorating gel
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray two round baking pans with cooking spray. Make the yellow cake batter according to the instructions on the package. Add the package of strawberry gelatin. Pour half of the batter into one cake pan and the other half of the batter into the other cake pan. Bake for around 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for about 1 hour. Place one of the cakes onto a serving platter. Frost the cake with whipped topping. Place the other cake on top and frost the second cake with whipped topping as well. Place two of the marshmallows at the top of the cakes about 3 inches apart so that they look like ears. Place the remaining marshmallows around the outside of the entire top cake. Use the black frosting to make eyes and use the pink frosting to make a mouth. Place the pink jelly bean in the middle of the cake to look like a nose.
