1 18 1/4 ounce package white cake mix
1 3 ounce package watermelon gelatin
1 1/4 cups water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 containers of vanilla or cream cheese frosting
red and green gel food coloring
In a mixing bowl, combine dry cake mix, gelatin, eggs, water and oil. Beat on
low speed just until moistened then on high for until well blended. Pour into
two greased and floured 9 inch round baking pans.
Bake at 350F for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for
10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
Set aside 2 to 3 tablespoons frosting for decorating. Place one container into a
bowl; tint red. Tint second container green. Place one cake layer on a serving
plate; spread with 1/2 red frosting to within 1/4 inch of edges. Top with second
cake. Frost top with remaining red frosting to within 3/4 inch of edges. Frost
sides and top edge with green frosting.
Place reserve white frosting in a small plastic baggie, cut 1/4 inch hole in one
corner. Pipe around top edge of cake where green and red frosting meets. For
seeds, insert chocolate chips upside down into the cake top.
