  • 2 Orange cakes Round, 8×2 each
  • 6 cups Buttercream icing Colored orange, yellow, white


  • Bake cakes and allow them to cool completely.
  • Place one cake on serving dish and spread white icing on top.
  • Place the other cake on top and press gently to secure into place.
  • Frost the entire cake in white buttercream icing.
  • Fill three piping bags- one with orange icing, one with yellow and one with white frosting. Attach Wilton's Tip #1M to each bag.
  • Let's decorate the side of the cake first- Squeeze yellow, orange and white icing randomly around the cake. Now, run your spatula in an upward direction. Do this all around your cake.
  • Let's decorate the top of the cake now- Pipe a swirl of orange frosting around the outer edge of the cake in the shape of a circle. Pipe white frosting inside the orange circle. Pipe yellow frosting inside the white circle. Pipe orange frosting inside the yellow circle. Finally, pipe a white star in the center of the orange circle. Enjoy!
