Rated 5 out of 5 by from has anyone tried reserving a 1/4 cup of dry cake mix and mixing with the choc chips then handing blending into batter? I do that with nut and dried fruit for my holiday cakes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was super easy and fun to make, everyone said WOW. but all my chocolate chips went to the bottom and on the edge of my cake but I added some chocolate chips on top at the end and it still look great! The green pen are hard to color onto fondant maybe because I have shortening on it, next time will use icing sugar or draw on the other side of my fondant! Thanks Wilton!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I baked my version of this cake and took it to a picnic today. They loved it. I increased it to 10" and added a second layer. I used strawberry cake mix and added a touch more color. I also iced the top pink and added "seeds". I striped the fondant with gel color and alcohol and they recognized that it represented a watermelon. I even had children lined up for a slice of my cake instead of a store bought sheet birthday cake. This was the first time that I've put fondant on a cake and it won't be the last. I would encourage anyone to make this cake and I will every chance that I get. Am adding it to my favorites.
