Sailboat Cakes - Very Easy

1. Bake box cake mix in 8” or 9” square pans.  Each mix does 2 layers; each layer is a boat. For the cake picture, I did 2 mixes, using 3 9" square layers for the sailboats and 1 6” round for the sun.) 

2. Cut and assemble on your cake board as shown below.  (Pattern by Betty Crocker).   

(Note: the pattern calls for a 9x13 cake, but I prefer to use the square pans and make 2 boats.  Cut the square cakes just as shown here.) 

3. Frost with Buttercream tinted as you like.

4. Decorate with licorice for the mast, life savers, and other candies, or use Wilton icing tubes with round tip to hand-draw patterns on the sails. 

Tip:  this is a good design for when you want different flavors of cake or if you need to do a special recipe.  One of the boats is made without eggs, as we had an egg-allergy to accommodate.
