Now that the table decor and party essentials are covered, we’ve got the ultimate show-stopper for dessert. Introducing our Mean Green Neon Confetti Cake, crawling with bright orange spiders. Let’s get started!

Ingredients:

– 2 packages white cake mix

– 6 eggs

– 2 1/2 cups diet Sprite (one 20-oz. bottle)

– Orange and green colorburst batter bits

– 4 12-ounce tubs vanilla frosting

– Neon green food coloring

– Plastic orange spider rings

Instructions:

1. Place cake mix, eggs and Sprite in a large bowl and beat with a blender until smooth. Divide the batter between two bowls. Fold green batter bits into one bowl and fold orange batter bits into the other bowl.

2. Divide the green batter between two 9″ cake pans. Divide the orange batter between two 9″ cake pans. Bake according to package directions. Let cool.

3. Combine frosting tubs with a few drops of green food coloring. Keep adding food coloring until your frosting is a bright “glowing” neon. Frost the top of each cake layer and stack.

4. Cover the outside of the cake with a thin crumb coat of white frosting and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

5. Add a thick layer of green frosting. Top with orange plastic spiders. Enjoy!
