  • Step 1: Prepare cakes Prepare the box of cake mix according to the package directions using water, the egg, and oil. Preheat oven.
  • Step 2: Place in pan Divide the batter between the 8-inch pan and the 9-inch pan and bake.
  • TIP: Cut paper Let the cake cool completely before cutting or frosting.
  • Step 3: Cut paper Use the scissors to cut a 6-inch circle out of parchment paper and place it on top of the 8-inch cake. Trim the cake around the parchment paper so the cake is 6 inches in diameter.
  • Step 4: Place cake Place the 9-inch cake on the 12-inch cardboard round. Spread some frosting on the middle of the 9-inch cake and place the 6-inch cake on top.
  • Step 5: Frost cake Frost the cake with the spatula, starting at the sides. Decorate the cake by putting ribbon around the top layer of the cake to form a hat ribbon, and place flowers on the "brim."
