  • 3
    In medium bowl, beat remaining gelatin, butter and milk with electric mixer on low speed 1 minute, scraping bowl constantly. Gradually beat in powdered sugar until smooth. If necessary, stir in additional milk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until spreadable.

    On serving plate, place 1 cake, rounded side down. Spread with 1/3 cup frosting. Top with second cake, rounded side up. Frost side and top of cake with remaining frosting. Sprinkle with candies. Store loosely covered.

Expert Tips

  • Once you've made this cake, be prepared to make it over and over again, because kids love it! With all the flavors of gelatin, you can have a different color and flavor every time you make it! You can also use sugar-free gelatin, if that is what you keep on hand. Reserve 1/2 teaspoon dry sugar-free gelatin for the frosting and use the remaining dry gelatin in the cake.
