When I make the Sock-It-To-Me cake on the "butter golden" cake box I decorate it according to the occasion. For Christmas I dye the frosting green and put candy canes in the center, for Easter yellow frosting and I tint coconut green and fill center with jelly beans, etc. For birthdays I find out favorite candy or such and decorate as close as I can. People pay me to make them for occasions. It is such an easy cake to make and decorate.
