Flavorful fruit-candy ribbons are wrapped all over this delicious gift cake that's perfect for birthdays or to serve during the holidays.

What you'll need

  • Vanilla frosting
  • Fruit rolls (e.g. Fruit Roll-Ups) or fruit leather
  • Fruit snacks shaped as circles
  • Kitchen scissors

How to make it

  1. Follow the directions on the cake mix box to create a layer cake. If you wish, bake in 9x13-inch pan and cut to make a layer cake.

  2. Let the cake cool completely.

  3. Frost the cake, be sure to put a layer of frosting between the layers of cake.

  4. Use the fruit rolls to make ribbons on the cake.

  5. Make a V cut on each of the tails of the ribbons (see photo).

  6. To make the bow, simply cut the fruit rolls into a strip and curl to make a circle. Make 2 small circles, 1 large circle, and 2 circles slightly smaller than the large circle.

  7. Cut a piece of the fruit rolls to use as the ribbon to hold the circles all together.

  8. Pinch the 3 largest circles together in the middle (see photo).

  9. Place one smaller circle on either side of the pinched circles. Hold on to only the inside closest to the other circles, but don't pinch in both side (see photo).

  10. Run the ribbon though the circles to hold together. Pinch to adhere.

  11. Lay the bow on top of the cake in the middle.

  12. Use the fruit snacks on the open area of the cake for decoration.

  13. Place birthday candles inside the fruit snacks.
