  • Step 2: Bake the cake Prepare the cake mix according to the package directions, pour the batter into the star-shaped pan, bake it according to package directions, and set it aside to cool.
  • TIP: Prepare both the cake and marshmallow treats the day before to allow both to firmly cool and set.
  • Step 3: Decorate Liberty island Frost the top of the cake with green frosting for the grass, and then frost the edges with gray frosting for the weathered brick.
