This is an easy way to make a cake that requires NO slicing and is much easier than making and frosting a cake that is made up of a bunch of individual cupcakes stacked together. Ours was designed to look like a snowball, but that “snowy” look is totally optional!
NOTE: This actually makes TWO cakes!
Prepare white cake mix according to package directions.
Using two 9″ round pie plates, nestle 12 cupcake papers into each.
Fill the wrappers half-way with batter:
Bake according to box directions for a layer cake. Once they start to barely brown, stick a toothpick in the center to see if it comes out clean – if so, they’re done! (I cooked these just a bit too long.)
Let the cake cool thoroughly, and then transfer to a serving plate. It’s ok if the pieces come apart while you’re doing this – it’s easy to fit them back together like a puzzle. Frost with your favorite frosting.
