    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    A Belgian inventor named Joseph Merlin introduced the first recorded roller skate in 1760. In 1863, James Plimpton, a businessman from Massachusetts, invented a roller skate that could turn. It was called a "rocking" skate -- the first one that really let people skate curves and turn. The National Museum of Roller Skating is located in Lincoln, Nebraska

    Skating Wonderland Cake

    1 pkg. (2-layer) white cake mix
    2 cups boiling water
    2 pkg. (4-serving size each) JELL-O Brand Strawberry Flavor Gelatin
    1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed, divided
    2 drops blue food coloring
    blue decorating gel
    20 candy-coated chocolate pieces
    6 TEDDY GRAHAMS Graham Snacks
    2 COMET Cups
    green decorating icing
    2 Tbsp. BAKER'S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut
    2 Tbsp. powdered sugar


    PREPARE cake batter and bake in two 9-inch round layer pans as directed on package. Cool in pans 15 min. (Do not remove cake layers from pans.)

    STIR boiling water into dry gelatin mixes at least 2 min. until completely dissolved. Pierce cakes with large fork or skewer at 1/2-inch intervals. Pour half the gelatin over each cake layer in pan. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.

    UNMOLD one of the cake layers onto serving plate; spread with 1/2 cup of the whipped topping. Unmold second cake layer; carefully place on top of cake layer on plate. Frost top and side of cake with 2 cups of the remaining whipped topping. Tint remaining whipped topping with food coloring; spread on top of cake to resemble ice rink. Outline outside edge of "ice rink" with decorating gel. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.

    DECORATE top of cake with candies. Add graham snacks for the "ice skaters." Decorate ice cream cones with green decorating icing; place around ice rink. Sprinkle cake with the coconut and powdered sugar.

    Serve immediately or refrigerate up to 2 hours before serving. Store leftover cake in refrigerator.

    Makes: 16 servings
