Prep Time: 15 Min

Total Time: 105 Min

Servings: 16 servings


  • 1 pkg. (2-layer size) yellow cake mix
  • 1/3 cup raspberry jam
  • 12 chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 1 tub (8 oz.) whipped topping, thawed, divided
  • Food coloring
  • 1 cup Fruity Pebbles Cereal Decorations: assorted ring-shaped hard candies and bite-size chocolate sandwich cookies


  1. Prepare cake batter and bake in two 9-inch round baking pans as directed on package. Cool 10 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely.
  2. Cut cakes crosswise in half. Spread two of the cake halves with jam; top with remaining two cake halves to form two stacks. To assemble, arrange cookies in center of large board or tray with edges slightly overlapping to form the "butterfly's body," securing cookies to each other with small amount of the whipped topping. Arrange cake stacks around body to resemble the butterfly's wings.
  3. Tint remaining whipped topping with food coloring as desired. Spread onto cakes. Decorate with whipped topping, cereal, candies and cookies. Store in refrigerator.
