  • Separate candy rolls into 8 pieces of each flavor; reserve remaining candy for another use. Place 8 pieces of one flavor candy in small plastic bag and crush with rolling pin until pieces are about 1/8-inch in size. Repeat with remaining flavors.
  • Prepare cake mix batter as directed on package; divide into 5 small bowls. Fold one flavor crushed candy into each bowl. Pour into well greased and floured coffee cans. Place filled cans on cookie sheet.
  • Bake at 350°F for 30 to 35 minutes or until cake pulls away slightly from edge of can and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in cans on wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from cans; cool completely on wire rack.
  • Trim cakes across top so all cakes are level and of uniform height, about 2-1/4 inches. Spread 12-inch strip vanilla frosting on serving platter (this will hold cake roll in place). Stand cakes on rounded side in frosting strip, end-to-end, to make LIFESAVERS Candy Roll, spreading frosting in between cakes to attach.
  • Make gray icing by mixing 1/2 cup vanilla frosting with 1 tsp. black decorator icing. Spread on both ends of cake and 1/4-inch onto cake roll at each end to resemble foil ends of candy roll.
  • Using star tip attached to white decorating icing tube, pipe the word 'LIFESAVERS' onto center of cake roll to resemble candy roll package. Attach writing tip to blue icing tube and fill in around letters to form a rectangle. Use white icing with star tip to pipe flag beneath blue rectangle; spread with knife to smooth flag surface. Use blue icing with writing tip to outline flag; use red icing with writing tip to write 'Five Flavor' on white flag. Using star tip on the decorating icing tubes, pipe green, white, orange, yellow and red stars to make flavor stripes o cake roll to resemble candy roll package.
