Let's Make It
1
Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare cake batter as directed on package. Pour three fourths of the batter into greased and floured 10-cup fluted tube pan. Sprinkle dry gelatin mix evenly over batter in pan; cut through batter with knife several times for marble effect, being careful not to cut through to bottom of pan. Top with remaining batter.
2
Bake 45 min. or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Invert pan onto wire rack; cool 5 min. Remove cake from pan; cool completely.
3
Cut out one third of cake. Cut removed cake piece in half; set aside. Stand remaining larger cake piece, cut-ends down, on cake board or tray. Place the smaller cake pieces on each end of large cake piece to resemble a curved caterpillar's body as shown in photo. Tint whipped topping with food coloring; spread onto cake. Drizzle with the melted chocolate to resemble the stripes on a caterpillar's body. Decorate with remaining ingredients as shown in photo. Store in refrigerator.
