Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
2 containers Betty Crocker Whipped fluffy white frosting
Green colored sugar
3 candy canes, broken to remove curved ends
Assorted small gumdrops, if desired
Heat oven to 350 degrees F (325 degrees F for dark or nonstick
pan). Make and cool cake as directed on box for 13 x 9-inch pan.
Freeze cake uncovered 1 hour for easier frosting. From the
middle of one short side, make a diagonal cut to each corner
on opposite side, making 3 triangular pieces. Make tree shape
by arranging 2 outer pieces with straight 13-inch sides together
on foil-covered tray, cutting board or cardboard; frost top.
Place remaining center piece on top.
Frost sides and top of cake. Press candy cane pieces in end
of tree to make trunk. Sprinkle with colored sugar to look like
boughs. Arrange gumdrops on cake to look like lights or ornaments.
Store loosely covered at room temperature.
