Beautiful Butterfly Cake

Servings: 16 servings
This cake is great for a party with a Butterfly theme!

1 package (2-layer size) cake mix, any flavor
1/3 cup raspberry jam
12 OREO Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
1 tub (8 oz. size) Non-Dairy Whipped Topping, thawed
Assorted food colorings
1 cup Fruity Pebbles Cereal
Decorations, such as assorted Life Savers, Roll Candies and Mini Bite Size Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Prepare and bake cake batter as directed on package for 2 (9-inch) round layers. Cool completely on wire racks.

Cut layers crosswise in half. Spread 2 of the cake halves with jam; top with remaining 2 cake halves to form 2 stacks. To assemble, arrange cookies in center of large board or tray with edges slightly overlapping to form the "butterfly's body," securing cookies to each other with small amount of the whipped topping. Arrange cake stacks around body to resemble the butterfly's wings.

Tint remaining whipped topping with food coloring as desired. Spread onto cake stacks. Decorate body with tinted whipped topping, cereal, candies and mini cookies.

Makes 16 servings.
