Cookies.Recipes's picture
Ingredients
  Spice cake mix 18 1⁄4 Ounce (1 Package)
  Eggs 2
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Creamy vanilla frosting mix 30 Ounce (2 Packages, 15 Ounce Each)
  Butter/Margarine 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Green food coloring 1 Drop
  Red food coloring 1 Drop
  10x confectioners' powdered sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Decorating sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) (Red Colored)
Directions

1. Grease a deep square 10-cup glass-ceramic casserole. Or use a 10-cup deep round casserole; flour lightly.
2. Prepare cake mix with eggs and water, following label directions; pour into prepared casserole.
3. Bake in moderate oven (350°) 50 minutes, or until top springs back when lightly pressed with fingertip. Cool in casserole on a wire rack 10 minutes; turn out onto rack; cool completely.
4. Prepare 1 package of the frosting mix with 1/4 cup of the butter or margarine and warm water, following label directions; frost cake.
5. Prepare remaining package of frosting mix with remaining butter or margarine and warm water, following label directions; measure out 1/2 cup and tint green with food coloring. Fit a #2 writing tip onto a cake-decorating set; fill with green frosting; press out onto sides of cake to form lattice.
6. Stir 10X sugar into remaining frosting until smooth and very stiff. Divide in half; tint one half green and the other pink with food colorings.
7. Pinch off green frosting, 1/2 tea-spoonful at a time, and shape into ovals; flatten each with palm of hand to make leaves; draw on markings with a wooden pick; let firm.
8. Pinch off pink frosting, 1 tea-spoonful at a time, and shape into strawberries; roll in red sugar on wax paper to coat well.
9. Arrange strawberries, tips up, on top of cake; tuck leaves between strawberries to cover top and look like a basket of strawberries. Serve with a ginger ale and orange juice punch and strawberries, if you wish.
