Back Of The Box - Speciality Cakes

Post  justmecookin on Wed Oct 29, 2008 8:50 am

Pink Castle Cake

2 boxes Betty Crocker SuperMoist yellow cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix boxes
3 containers (12 oz each) Betty Crocker Whipped fluffy white frosting
Red food color
Tray or cardboard (18x18 inches), covered with paper or foil
5 ice cream cones with pointed ends
1 flat-bottom ice cream cone
Pink decorating sugar
5 candy stars
28 sugar cubes
4 pink gum balls
5 pink sugar wafer cookies
1 tube (4.25 oz) Betty Crocker white decorating icing



Heat oven to 350 (325 for dark or nonstick pans). Grease bottoms and sides of 4 (8-inch) square pans with shortening or cooking spray. Make 1 cake mix as directed on box, using water, oil and eggs. Divide batter between 2 pans. Bake 2 pans at a time, following times on cake mix box for 8-inch round pans. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Repeat with remaining cake mix.

Spoon frosting into large bowl. Stir in enough food color until desired pink color. Using serrated knife, cut off domed top from each cake so they will be flat when stacked. On tray, place 1 cake, cut side down; spread 1/3 cup frosting over top. Add second cake, cut side down; spread top with 1/3 cup frosting. Add third cake, cut side down; do not frost.

Cut fourth cake into quarters. Spread small amount of frosting on bottom of 1 quarter; place frosted side down on top of stacked cakes. Spread top of stacked cake quarter with 1 tablespoon frosting. Place second quarter on top of first quarter; spread top with 1 tablespoon frosting. Add third quarter; do not frost.

Cut fourth quarter into quarters to create four 2-inch squares. Spread a small dollop of frosting on the top center of the second tier of cakes. Place one 2-inch piece on the center; spread top with frosting. Top with one more 2-inch piece. (Discard remaining 2 pieces.)

To "crumb-coat" cake, spread thin layer of frosting over layered cake to seal in crumbs. Freeze cake 30 to 60 minutes.

Frost cake with remaining frosting. Place 1 pointed-end cone on upside-down flat-bottom cone for center steeple. Frost stacked cones with pink frosting; roll in pink sugar. Place the stacked cones upside down on the top cake layer. Frost remaining 4 pointed-end cones with frosting; roll in pink sugar. Place 1 upside-down cone on each corner of the first cake layer. Top each cone with a candy star.

Place sugar cubes around edges of the first and second layers. Top each of the 4 corner sugar cubes with a gum ball. Attach 2 cookies on one side of first layer to create doors. Cut 2 additional cookies to desired size for windows; place each cookie on opposite sides of doors. Cut remaining cookie in half; place 1 half in center of second layer to create accent window. Pipe on window panes and doorknobs with white icing. Makes 30 servings

2 containers (1 lb each) Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
Red food color

1/4 cup Betty Crocker star-shaped candy decors



Heat oven to 325. Grease 1 (1 1/2-quart) ovenproof bowl (8 inches across top) and 2 (8-inch) round cake pans with shortening; coat with flour (do not use cooking spray).

In large bowl, make both cake mixes as directed on box, using water, oil and eggs for each mix. (Two boxes of cake mix can be made at one time; do not make more than 2 boxes, and do not increase beating time.) Pour 3 1/2 cups batter into 1 1/2-quart bowl and 2 1/2 cups batter into each cake pan.

Bake cake pans 35 to 40 minutes and bowl 45 to 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Remove cakes from pans and bowl; place rounded sides up on cooling racks. Cool completely, about 1 hour. If necessary, cut off rounded tops of cakes baked in 8-inch pans. Cut 2-inch-diameter hole in center of all 3 cakes.

Spoon frosting into large bowl. Stir in enough food color until desired pink color. Place one 8-inch cake on serving plate; spread 1/3 cup frosting over top. Top with second 8-inch cake; spread with 1/3 cup frosting. Top with bowl cake.

Wrap hair and lower half of doll with plastic wrap. Insert doll into center of cake. Trim side of cake if necessary to make a tapered "skirt."

To "crumb-coat" cake, spread thin layer of frosting over side and top of layered cake to seal in crumbs. Freeze cake 30 to 60 minutes.

Fit #24 star tip into decorating bag. Spoon 1/4 cup pink frosting into decorating bag; set aside. Starting at waist of doll, frost cake with downward strokes to make ruffled skirt. Use star tip to cover bodice of doll and add decoration to skirt if desired. Gently press star decors into frosting to decorate neckline and skirt. Unwrap hair. Makes 30 servings
