Ingredients

CAKE

  • Pillsbury® Baking Spray with Flour
  • 1 package Pillsbury® Moist Supreme® Classic White Premium Cake Mix
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/3 cup Crisco® Pure Vegetable Oil
  • 4 large egg whites

FROSTING

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • Pink and blue decorator frosting

Preparation Directions

  • HEAT oven to 350°F. Spray 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan with no-stick baking spray. Prepare cake mix as directed on package, using water, oil and eggs. Pour into prepared pan.
  • BAKE 20 to 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean; cool. Freeze cake 1 hour to reduce crumbs while cutting. Cut cake into pieces using foot-shaped cookie cutter; return to freezer.
  • COMBINE frosting ingredients in small bowl. Blend at low speed until powdered sugar is moistened. Beat at high speed until smooth. If necessary, add 2 to 3 teaspoons water until frosting is of desired drizzling consistency.
  • SET cake pieces on wire rack over 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan or waxed paper. Spoon frosting evenly over top and sides of cake pieces (frosting that drips off can be reused). Using decorator frosting, outline foot-shaped petits fours.
