Prepare and bake cake following package directions for 9-inch round layers;

vanilla pudding; cover with banana slices then top with second layer. Make

remaining frosting on top and sides of cake.

Using green frosting, pipe "Happy Birthday" on top of cake. Decorate with
as many butterflies as you wish. Makes 10-12 servings.

To make the butterflies: On a sugared surface, flatten purple gumdrop
slices, one at a time, with rolling pin. Cut into 2-inch long strips for
bodies. Split strips at one end and separate for "feelers". Secure "bodies"
in frosting. Split orange or lime gumdrop wedges and place a half slice on
each side of body to resemble wings.

Creamy Orange Butter Frosting:

5 Tablespoons soft butter or margarine 2 teaspoons finely grated orange
peel 3 cups confectioners sugar, sifted 2 to 3 Tablespoons Florida orange

Blend butter or margarine, orange peel, sugar and 2 Tablespoons orange
juice until smooth and easy to spread. If frosting seems too thick,
gradually add a little more orange juice.

Makes enough to frost one 9-inch 2 layer cake.
