Celebrate the outdoorsman in your life with our fun and tasty Lumberjack Cake. On the outside, this Lumberjack Cake looks like a tree stump. However, once you cut into it you'll discover that the inside is reminiscent of a flannel shirt. How great is that?

Select All
Step 1
Heat oven to 350°F.
Step 2
Line 2 (8-inch) round pans with parchment; spray with cooking spray. Prepare batter for 1 cake mix and bake in prepared pans as directed on package. Cool 10 min. Remove cakes from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
Step 3
Meanwhile, wash and dry cooled cake pans before lining with parchment and spraying with cooking spray for reuse. Prepare batter for second cake mix; blend in 1/2 tsp. food colouring. Pour into prepared pans. Bake and cool as directed for first 2 layers.
Step 4
Microwave unsweetened chocolate in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 min. or until completely melted, stirring every 30 sec. Cool 5 min. Add sugar, butter and vanilla. Gradually add milk, beating after each addition with mixer until frosting is light and fluffy.
Step 5
Spoon 2 cups frosting into separate bowl; stir in remaining food colouring.
Step 6
Stack black cake layers alternately with red cake layers on serving plate, spreading about 2/3 cup black frosting between each layer.
Step 7
Spoon 1/2 cup of the chocolate frosting into resealable plastic bag; reserve for later use. Frost top and sides of cake with remaining chocolate frosting.
Step 8
Use toothpick to draw circular lines in frosting on top of cake to resemble top of tree stump. Use spatula to draw additional lines in frosting on sides of cake to resemble tree bark. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of frosting-filled bag; use to pipe knobs of frosting around base of cake to resemble tree roots as shown in photo.

Fun Ideas
A small toy ax makes the perfect complement to this fun cake. Press blade of ax gently into top of frosted cake before serving.
If tops of cake layers are domed in the centres, use serrated knife to cut the domed tops from the cooled cake layers before frosting and decorating as directed.
