This intricate petal design looks difficult to master, but it's actually a breeze! Try your hand at this frosting technique and use it for years (and cakes!) to come.

Ingredients

Cake

1
box yellow cake mix with pudding
Water, oil and eggs called for on cake mix box

Frosting

1 1/2
cups butter, softened
5
cups powdered sugar
2
teaspoons vanilla
2
to 4 tablespoons milk
Blue, purple, green and orange gel food color

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Grease bottom only of 1 (13x9-inch) pan. Make cake mix as directed on box using water, oil and eggs.
  • 2 Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cook completely, about 1 hour.
  • 3 Meanwhile, beat butter with an electric mixer on low speed until creamy. Beat in the powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, until smooth. Add vanilla and milk, 2 tablespoons at a time until well combined. If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk.
  • 4 Use 1/2 cup frosting to frost a thin layer over entire cake. Divide remaining frosting into four bowls (about 3/4 cup frosting in each bowl). Mix blue, purple, green and orange food color, one into each bowl, until desired hue is reached.
  • 5 Place each color in individual resealable food-storage plastic bag. Cut 1/2 inch off one corner of each bag. Pipe a dot of blue frosting and use back of teaspoon to pull frosting slightly. Repeat with remaining colors, alternating colors as you cover cake, slightly overlapping dots of frosting.
Tips  

You can resume the frosting excess that is on the back of the spoon. Just scrape it into a small bowl as you frost, then spoon back into the plastic bag to reuse.
