This must-make cake is undeniably impressive, but easier than it looks thanks to Betty Crocker™ cake mix and frosting.

Ingredients

2
boxes Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ vanilla cake mix
2
cups milk
1
cup vegetable oil
6
eggs
1 1/2
teaspoons almond extract
1/2
cup seedless strawberry jam
4
containers Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting
1
box (4.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ Fruit by the Foot™ strawberry chewy fruit snack rolls
Red, green and lime green paste food color
1
Gift Tag Cookie

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 3 (8-inch) square cake pans with shortening; lightly flour.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat cake mix, milk, oil, eggs and almond extract on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes. Divide batter evenly among pans.
  • 3 Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4 With serrated knife, cut off domed top of each cake layer to level. Carefully brush off crumbs. Place 1 cake layer, cut side up, on serving plate; spread with 1/4 cup jam. Spread 3/4 cup frosting over jam. Repeat with second cake layer, cut side up, 1/4 cup jam and 3/4 cup frosting. Top with remaining cake layer, cut side down. Using large spatula, carefully spread thin layer of frosting over sides of cake, then over top, to seal in crumbs. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Apply second thicker layer of frosting to sides and top of cake, spreading until smooth.
  • 5 Cut 4 (8-inch) pieces from fruit snacks. Place on top and sides of cake, pressing gently into frosting to look like ribbon. Spoon 1/4 cup frosting in mound on center of cake. Cut remaining fruit snacks into 4-inch pieces. Fold each piece in half to look like loops of bow; press into frosting mound to create large bow.
  • 6 Place 1/3 cup frosting in each of 3 small bowls; tint 1 bowl red, 1 green and 1 lime green. Spoon each color frosting into separate small resealable food-storage plastic bags or disposable decorating bags; seal bags. Cut off tiny corner of each bag and fit with writing tip. Squeeze to pipe dots on cake. Place Gift Tag Cookie on cake.
