A Pizza Cake with Pizzazz! Recipe

This Great Cake Contest entry was submitted by Cleopatra14k from Eugene, Oregon: A fabulously fun cake to serve for a pizza birthday party!

What you'll need

  • 1 Pizza box
  • Crust: 1 box Yellow Cake Mix with eggs, oil and water necessary to prepare as directed.
  • Pizza Sauce: 1 tub white frosting mixed with 1 packet Kool-Aide Cherry Flavor.
  • Cheese: 1 lb shredded coconut
  • Pepperoni: 1 box cherry jell-o
  • Green Peppers: 1 box lime jell-o
  • Olives: black licorice bits, 1/2 cup
  • Pineapple: dried pineapple

How to make it

  1. For easiest cake creation at least 1-2 days before: Bake cake, and prepare jello pepperoni & peppers. Dice up pineapple and olives. Color coconut. Assemble pizza up to 24 hours before. Place on large plastic lid, or cardboard covered in foil, or a pizza pan if it fits into the pizza box. Store in refrigerator until serving time. Use plastic wrap, or the cake pan to keep cake covered. Surprise the child with "pizza" for dinner, allow them to open
  2. Mix cake mix as directed baking in an extra large cake pan, be sure to use parchment paper on the bottom to keep the cake from sticking. After baking, remove from pan by turning upside down over cooling racks. Cool, and then freeze for a minimum of 2 hours.
  3. Mix white frosting with food coloring or powder Kool-Aide, and spread on the cake for the "Pizza Sauce.
  4. Sprinkle coconut over cherry frosting 'sauce' on cake. Reserve cup. In small bowl, add 3-4 drops yellow food coloring to the remaining coconut and stir to color. Sprinkle yellow coconut across white "cheese.
  5. Pepperoni: 1 lg box cherry Jell-O: Make jello using only 1 cup boiling water. Pour into 9 x 13 pan that has been sprayed with Non-Stick cooking spray. Allow to set in refrigerator for 2 hours, then use something to cut out small circles (I used a Gatorade sports drink lid). Remove and place in plastic storage container until pizza preparation.
  6. Green Onions: 1 small box lime jello. Make using only cup water. Pour into small flat dish or bread pan that has been sprayed with Non-Stick cooking spray. Allow to set, and use a knife, or even a pizza cutter to cut Green Pepper shapes. Remove and place in plastic storage container until pizza preparation.
  7. Olives: Black licorice cut into small pieces.
  8. Pineapple: Dried pineapple cut into tidbit sizes.
