  • 1 box spiced cake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 (12 oz.) containers cream cheese icing
  • green food coloring
  • red ribbon
  • artificial red berries on wire
  • leaf tip
  • icing bag


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Place cake mix, water, oil and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Lightly spray your temp-tations® Fluted Tube Pan with non-stick spray. Pour in batter and bake for 45 - 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the top comes out clean. Cool for 30 minutes and then turn out onto serving tray. Place in refrigerator to completely cool. 
  3. Place the icing into the bowl of a stand mixer and beat with the paddle attachment for 1 minute. Add in a few drops of food coloring and mix well. Continue adding food coloring until a nice holiday green color is achieved. 
  4. When the cake is completely cool, spread a thin layer of the icing over the cake. 
  5. Place the leaf tip in the icing bag and fill with green icing. 
  6. Starting with the top of the cake - a little inside of the tube hole - make a 1-inch leaf horizontally, going to the right. Continue making the leaves vertically in a straight line until you reach the bottom of the cake. 
  7. Rotate the cake a little counter-clockwise and repeat making the line of vertical leaves, overlapping the first row of leaves by a little bit. Repeat the process until the entire cake is covered. 
  8. Make a bow with ribbon and place on top of the cake. Sprinkle red berries around the bow. Enjoy!
