Grandma/Grandpa Cake
Grandma/Grandpa Cake

You will need:

  • 1 box cake mix, any flavor, plus ingredients listed on box
  • 1 can frosting (you can make Grandma/Grandpa any color you want)
  • 1 tube red frosting (to decorate face – you can use other colors too)
  • 1 store-bought mini cupcake (for nose)
  • 4 cookies (for eyes and ears)
  • Shredded coconut (for hair – use food coloring to change the color of shredded coconut)


  1. Follow directions on the cake mix box for a one layer cake. (You should use a 9 inch round cake pan). Let cake cool.
  2. Remove cake from pan and put it on a plate larger than the cake itself. That leaves extra room for drips!
  3. Frost cake all over top and around sides using a spatula. Make swirls for the cheeks and “draw” a smile into the frosting for the mouth.
  4. Place the cupcake in the center for the nose.
  5. Squeeze the tube of frosting to create his eyebrows, mustache, eyeglasses, and smile. Mix frosting for cheeks.
  6. Add cookies for ears and eyes and coconut for hair.
