Servings: 6 Prep 1 hr 10 mins total Bake 350°F 30 mins


  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 1 1/2 cups marshmallow creme
  • 3 cups powdered sugar, plus more for dusting
  • Yellow food coloring
  • Red food coloring
  • 1 cup prepared lemon curd
  • 1 can (16 ounces) prepared white frosting

Make It

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare cake mix according to package directions and divide evenly among three 6-inch round cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Cool 5 minutes in pans; invert cakes to wire rack and cool completely.

2. Meanwhile, in bowl, blend marshmallow creme and 2 cups of the confectioners sugar. Knead in remaining 1 cup confectioners sugar. Set aside 1/4 of dough. Evenly knead yellow food coloring into larger dough piece, dusting with more sugar, if needed.

3. Trim cakes level. Freeze one layer for later use. Stack remaining 2 layers with 1/4 cup lemon curd. Spread 1/2 cup lemon curd on top and sides of cake. Roll yellow dough in large circle (about 12 inches). Drape yellow dough circle over cake, smoothing with hands (there will be a seam). Trim dough to fit, pressing seams together. Roll out untinted dough; cut into assorted-size flowers with small cutters. Tint canned frosting pink with red coloring. Pipe circles for centers onto cut-outs; fill in with frosting. Glue flowers to cake with lemon curd. Wrap cake in plastic; store in refrigerator.
