  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 2 (9-inch) round layers, blending food colouring into batter before pouring into prepared pans. Cool cakes in pans 10 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely.
  • Beat cream cheese and sugar in small bowl with mixer until blended. Gently stir in Cool Whip. Spread onto tops and sides of cakes.
  • Cut each cake into 8 wedges. Insert peppermint stick into bottom of each cake for the tree trunk. Decorate with remaining ingredients to resemble Christmas trees.

Special Extra

To decorate trees with tinted coconut, just mix 1/4 tsp. water with a few drops of food colouring. Add to coconut in resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Shake until coconut is evenly tinted. For a darker shade, add additional food colouring to the water; seal bag and shake until evenly tinted.

Size Wise

Sweets can add enjoyment to a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions. One serving of this cake is one tree.
