I'm sticking with boxed mixes!
I made a yellow cake, as directed on the package.
Added some green gel coloring.
Divided the batter between two 9" round pans.
Baked & cooled as directed.
Once my cake was cool, I put the first layer (top side down/flat side up) on my pedestal.
Then, for the sake of keeping things tidy, I tucked some wax paper around the edges of the cake.
Frosted the top.
Arranged the top cake layer- rounded side up.
Frosted the sides.
Frosted the top, removed all the wax paper and..
*And by 'voila' I mean 'I don't know how to properly frost a cake so it looks a little rough!'
