This adorable cake is as easy as it is delicious,

1 pink jelly bean
1 tsp.   black decorating gel


1. HEAT oven to 350°F.

2. COVER bottoms of 2 (9-inch) round pans with parchment; spray with cooking spray.

3. PREPARE cake batter as directed on package. Stir in dry gelatin mix; pour into prepared pans.

  1. That's really cute and a great idea with the marshmallows! I have always used two round cakes and cut ears out of one of the rounds.
