For a winter birthday or the hottest day in summer! Go on an around-the-house explorer’s party, ending at the North Pole with box lunches, sugar snow, funny little gnomes and Igloo Cake.
1 package of our devils food cake mix
1 package of our fluffy white frosting mix
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
¼ teaspoon shortening
Bake cake in 2 layer pans, 8 x 1½ inches, as directed on package. Prepare frosting mix as directed on package.
Cut layers into halves to make 4 semicircles; put halves together with frosting to form igloo. Place cake upright on cut edge on serving plate or tray. Frost top and sides of igloo.
Melt chocolate and shortening over low heat. Using teaspoon, drizzle melted chocolate on top and sides of igloo in parallel crisscross lines to make ice block squares. Surround igloo with sprinkling of granulated sugar for snow.
Into each box lunch, tuck a whole carrot, an apple, a small chocolate bar for quick energy and at the last minute, 2 hot crusty fish sticks. Stories about penguins, polar bears and walruses will keep the children happy during lunch.
