1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

2 tablespoons light corn syrup

6 to 7 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Fat Free Half & Half


2 waffle cones

Fruit roll

1 gummy fruit ring

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F. Generously grease and flour 1 1/2-quart oven-safe bowl. Generously grease and flour 12- or 13-inch round pizza pan with at least 3/4-inch high rim. Set both aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all cake ingredients except decorator sugar in bowl. Beat according to package directions. Gently stir in orange decorator sugar.

  3. STEP 3

    Pour about 3 cups cake batter into prepared bowl. Pour remaining batter into prepared pizza pan, spread evenly. Bake batter in pizza pan 15-17 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; loosen sides of cake with knife and invert onto round 14-inch or larger serving plate. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Bake batter in bowl 45-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; loosen sides of cake with knife and invert onto cooling rack. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine all frosting ingredients except half & half in bowl. Beat at low speed until mixed. Beat at high speed, adding enough half & half for desired frosting consistency.

  6. STEP 6

    Frost top and sides of cake brim with about 1 1/2 cups frosting. Place crown, top side down, on center of frosted brim. Frost crown. Press 1 waffle cone gently into top of crown. Top with another waffle cone turning until it is level. Holding tip of cone, frost upward from base of crown to cover cones and to push frosting between cones for securing into place.

Tip #2

-Gummy or gumdrop fruit rings are available in the bulk candy section of the supermarket or sometimes in bags in the candy aisle.

- A 1 1/2-quart oven-safe bowl will hold 5 to 6 cups of water when filled to the top. To check to see if your bowl is large enough, fill it with water, 1 cup at a time.

Tip #4

- To ensure ease of removing cake brim from pan; line pizza pan with parchment or waxed paper. Grease and flour as directed.
