Cotton Candy Dreams

Dreams really do come true. I know I need to believe that right now in my own life. We all need to hold onto hope-filled dreams. This cake is as Kermit says, and he knows something about dreams. It's for "lovers, the dreamers and me." I even used the Duncan Hines Confetti Cake Mix. Why? Because when you bring this cake, your gonna have a party, right? =) I used my Wilton 9" petal pan.

Baking Instructions

  1. Pour pack of Duncan Hines® Frosting Creations™ Cotton Candy Flavor Mix into can of Duncan Hines® Frosting Creations™ Frosting Starter. Stir until evenly blended.
  2. Prepare cake mix according to box directions. Cool completely before decorating.
  3. Level cake. Place just a small amount of icing over one layer; top with remaining layer.
  4. Ice Cake, making sort of cloud swirl on the top. You should have frosting left. Stir in a bit of blue food coloring, mix completely. Add 1/4 cup of powdered sugar and mix until thoroughly blended.
  5. Attach #5 icing tip to icing bag. Fill with with darker blue icing.
  6. On the top write: "Somewhere over the rainbow... dreams come true."
  7. Decorate outside of cake with gummi worms making rainbow shapes.
  8. Take large marshmallows, cut in half and manipulate into clouds. I used a bit of icing on my hands to give just a slight blue hue to the clouds.

To improve any box mix, substitute buttermilk for the water in the recipe and add 2 Tbl of instant pudding powder. (Chocolate pudding powder for Choc cakes, Vanilla for all other cakes). Mix and bake as usual, adding a minute or two more to the baking time. The cake will be level on top, for easier icing, and is very moist, tasting like homemade. My family can't believe the difference!

I like to add mayo for moisture into the batter. I only put a dab into the mix.
