Ingredients

1
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ white cake mix
Water, oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box
Red and blue gel food colors
2
containers Betty Crocker™ Whipped fluffy white frosting
6
PEEPS® patriotic vanilla crème flavored chicks
1/2
cup red, white and blue jimmies candy sprinkles

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Make cake batter as directed on box. Divide batter equally among 3 bowls. Tint 1 bowl of batter with red food color, 1 bowl with blue food color, and leave remaining bowl white.
  • 2 Spray 2 (8- or 9-inch) round cake pans with cooking spray. Line bottoms of pans with cooking parchment paper, if desired, to prevent sticking. Spoon 1/3 cup red batter into center of each cake pan. Spoon 1/3 cup blue batter into center of red batter in each pan, followed by 1/3 cup white batter in each. Repeat with remaining batter until used up.
  • 3 Bake as directed on box for 8- or 9-inch round cake pans. Cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4 On serving plate, place 1 cake layer, rounded side down. Frost top of cake layer with 1/2 cup frosting from one of the containers. Top with second layer, rounded side up. Frost side and top of cake with remaining frosting from container.
  • 5 Divide remaining container of frosting into two bowls. Color one bowl with red food color and the second with blue food color. Place frostings in two resealable food-storage plastic bags with one corner cut off each bag. Pipe fireworks shape on top of cake, using photo as a guide.
  • 6 Press sprinkles around side of cake to finish. Top with PEEPS® chicks. Cut into slices to serve.
