  • Bake the cakes and allow them to cool completely.
  • While they are cooling, prepare frosting.
  • Place one cake on a cake stand or serving dish.
  • Spread frosting on top with a spatula.
  • Then, place the other cake on top and press gently to secure it in place.
  • Now, frost the entire cake completely.
  • Run the spatula vertically all around the cake until there is a line pattern.
  • Run the spatula on top of the cake in a circular motion until there is a circle pattern. Keep aside.
  • Drop a spoonful of melted chocolate on a sheet of wax paper.
  • Stick the Trix cereal in the shape of a flower on top of the melted chocolate.
  • Allow the chocolate to set and harden at room temperature (about 10 minutes).
  • Make these cereal flowers in multiple colors.
  • Remove cereal flowers from wax paper and stick them randomly all over the cake.
  • Stick some cereal balls around the base of the cake. Enjoy!
