Butterfly Cake

I made this for Sierra's birthday yesterday and I got it from kraft foods.

What You Need:

1 pkg. (2-layer size) yellow cake mix
1/3 cup raspberry jam
12 OREO Cookies
1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed, divided
food coloring
1 cup fruit-flavored sweetened rice cereal
Decorations: assorted ring-shaped hard candies and Mini OREO Bite Size Chocolate Sandwich Cookies (I used Spree candies)

Make It:

PREPARE cake batter and bake in two 9-inch round baking pans as directed on package. Cool 10 min.; remove to wire racks. Cool completely.

CUT cakes crosswise in half. Spread two of the cake halves with jam; top with remaining two cake halves to form two stacks. To assemble, arrange cookies in center of large board or tray with edges slightly overlapping to form the "butterfly's body," securing cookies to each other with small amount of the whipped topping. Arrange cake stacks around body to resemble the butterfly's wings.

TINT remaining whipped topping with food coloring as desired. Spread onto cakes. Decorate with whipped topping, cereal, candies and cookies. Store in refrigerator.
