White and dark chocolate bars are "key" to decorating this piano cake baked from an easy mix.

Ingredients

1
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ cake mix (any flavor*)
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
Tray or cardboard (15x12 inches), covered with wrapping paper and plastic food wrap or foil
2
bars (3.5 oz each) white chocolate candy
1
bar (1.55 oz) milk chocolate candy
1 1/2
containers Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy chocolate frosting

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Make cake as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Cool 10 minutes. Run knife around sides of pan to loosen cake; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour. For easier handling, refrigerate or freeze cake 30 to 60 minutes or until firm.
  • 2 Use serrated knife to cut cake as shown in diagram (for piano bench, cut 4 1/2x1 1/2-inch piece; cut horizontally in half to make bench lower than piano, if desired). Place cake on tray. Place about 2 tablespoons frosting in small resealable food-storage plastic bag. Frost cake with thin layer of frosting to set crumbs. Refrigerate or freeze 30 to 60 minutes to set frosting. Frost entire cake.
  • 3 Cut 1 bar white chocolate into 1 3/4x1/2-inch strips. From remaining bar, cut 2 1/2x1 1/2-inch piece for music. Cut milk chocolate into 1x3/8-inch pieces. Place white and milk chocolate pieces on cake for piano keys. Cut off tiny corner of bag with frosting; pipe frosting notes on white chocolate "music." Place above keys. Store loosely covered.
Tips  

*For all chocolate and devil's food cake mixes, use only 1 cup of the water.

To make it easier to cut chocolate bars, have chocolate at room temperature. Heat a sharp knife in hot water and dry before cutting chocolate.

Pick up an extra white chocolate candy bar in case one breaks.

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.
