12 servings

What You Need

pkg.  (2-layer size) white cake mix
 Food coloring: 8 drops red or blue, 1 drop each green and yellow, divided
pkg.  (4 oz.) BAKER'S White Chocolate
 ring-shaped butter cookies
small  gumdrops
oz.  BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
container  (16 oz.) ready-to-spread vanilla frosting
cup  thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
Tbsp.  assorted sprinkles (flat-candy dot and pearl ball)

Make It

HEAT oven to 350ºF.

PREPARE cake batter as directed on package; spoon 2 cups batter into 10-cup fluted tube pan or 10-inch tube pan sprayed with cooking spray.

SPOON 1/2 cup of the remaining batter into small bowl; tint with red food coloring for baby girl, or with blue food coloring for baby boy. Spoon colored batter into resealable plastic bag. Snip one corner off bottom of bag; use to pipe colored batter into ring in center of plain batter in pan. Carefully spoon remaining plain batter over batters in pan, completely covering tinted batter.

BAKE 36 min. or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan 10 min. Loosen cake from sides of pan with knife; invert onto wire rack. Gently remove pan; cool cake completely.

MEANWHILE, melt white chocolate as directed on package. Pour half into separate bowl. Tint chocolate in one bowl with green food coloring; tint remaining melted chocolate with yellow food coloring.

DIP 2 cookies in bowl of green-tinted chocolate, turning to evenly coat both sides of each cookie. Place small gumdrop in hole in center of 1 cookie. Place both cookies on parchment-covered plate. Repeat with remaining cookies, gumdrop and yellow-tinted chocolate. Refrigerate 15 min. or until chocolate coating is firm. Place gumdrop-filled green cookie perpendicular to plain green cookie to resemble pacifier, securing with remaining green-tinted chocolate. Repeat with remaining coated cookies to make second pacifier. Refrigerate 10 min. or until firm.

MEANWHILE, melt semi-sweet chocolate as directed on package; cool slightly. Spoon into resealable plastic bag. Snip corner off one bottom corner of bag; use to pipe question marks halfway onto 5 lollipop sticks on parchment-covered baking sheet. Refrigerate until ready to use.

MIX frosting and COOL WHIP until blended; spread onto cake. Insert stick-ends of chocolate question marks into cake. Decorate with sprinkles and pacifiers.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size Wise
Enjoy your favorite foods while keeping portion size in mind.
Special Extra
Use flower-shaped sprinkles to make additional question marks on side of cake.
Omit canned frosting and COOL WHIP. Beat 1 pkg. (8 oz.) softened PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, 2 Tbsp. softened butter and 1 tsp. vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually add 3 cups powdered sugar, beating well after each addition.
