Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Prepare cake batter and bake in two 9-inch round baking pans as directed on package. Cool 10 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely.
  • Cut cakes crosswise in half. Spread two of the cake halves with jam; top with remaining two cake halves to form two stacks. To assemble, arrange cookies in center of large board or tray with edges slightly overlapping to form the "butterfly's body," securing cookies to each other with small amount of the whipped topping. Arrange cake stacks around body to resemble the butterfly's wings.
  • Tint remaining whipped topping with food coloring as desired. Spread onto cakes. Decorate with whipped topping, cereal, candies and cookies. Store in refrigerator.

Variation

For a refreshing citrus cake, prepare as directed using lemon cake mix and substituting orange marmalade for the raspberry jam.

Substitute

Substitute any flavor cake mix for the yellow cake mix.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a wonderful idea. What a wonderful idea. I am going to make this cake tonight to bring to my mom's for Palm Sunday (as it is also the first day of spring). The Butterfly and all it's colors will be a wonderful reminder of the beautiful season that is just around the corner. I read though all the ratings on this cake and I love the substitutions for the Oreo cookies ie., lady fingers or Twinkies. (I plan on using lady fingers too. Hint: Anyone contemplating making any of the posted recipes should read through the comments. We have a lot of very creative people in this club who have great subtitute ideas. It's always worth reading through the comments!

I searched long and hard to try and find just the right cake for my son's first birthday and I made a super choice when I decided on this one! It was very simple to do and very cute! All my guests raved at how complicated it looked, and I just smiled. I did however use strawberry preserves instead of the raspberry, I used applesauce in the cake mix instead of oil, I used fat free cool whip, and I decorated with fruity pebbles, baby oreo's, and colored sugar crystals. This is a great recipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter saw this cake in your magazine and wanted it for her birthday. My daughter saw this cake in your magazine and wanted it for her birthday. We used a strawberry cake mix and used the strawberry flavored cool whip instead of tinting it. We used sprinkles instead of the fruity pebbles, and I let my daughter and son use M&M mini's to decorate. My husband loved it and he is not a cake person. Next time I will try the Jello-poke method instead of the jam. We loved it!

I just make this cake this weekend, for my grandchildren, ages 23 down to 3 and it was okay, just a box cake, the jelly was something my mother did from WWII. I trimmed up the tray it was on with additional candies, and the little Oreos' all the kids, age did not matter, seemed more interested in the trimmings on the tray and the cake, more so than the cake itself. My husband enjoyed the cake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made this for my Grandma who loves butterflies. Made this for my Grandma who loves butterflies. I used strawberry jam because I could't find raspberry. To make it fresher, I substitued vanila wafers for the oreos. I cut out all of the candy and outlined the wings with blue berries and used cut strawberries and kiwi to make the design in the wings. Everyone loved it and it was really pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 11 year old daughter and I made this cake last night for her birthday party. My 11 year old daughter and I made this cake last night for her birthday party. We used Chocolate Cake and Chocolage whipped frosting (choc cool whip would have been easier to spread). We had such a good time decorating it and it looks really super!!! I love a recipe that is kid friendly and looks impressive!!!! We are all about presentation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've made this cake three times. I've made this cake three times. Each time it was a hit. The only changes I made was using sprinkles or colored sugar instead of the fruity pebbles, although the fruity pebbles weren't bad either. I also used zingers for the body of the butterfly instead of oreos and stuck licorice in the top of one of the zingers as antenae. It was great!

But i soon figured out that the cool-whip was the topping! whoops!
