DIRECTIONS

  • You will also need: 1 40x20 cake board covered in foil or paper Cut each bundt cake in half, NOT horizontally, vertically.
  • Position pieces end to end to make a serpentine shape (like an"S" on it's side) Set it on the cake board with a little bit of frosting as the glue.
  • Tint your frosting whatever color you'd like your snake to be.
  • I did a green color.
  • Frost entire length of cake with the colored frosting, frosting halfway down the sides.
  • If you do the whole thing you'll need another can or two of frosting.
  • Place the chocolate chips in a zip bag.
  • Microwave on MEDIUM (50%) power for 20 to 30 seconds.
  • Mush the bag a bit and microwave 20 more seconds on medium power until chocolate is melted.
  • Clip the corner of the bag and use it to make a diamond pattern along the snake's back.
  • cut the fruit roll-up into a strip that has a forked tongue shape on the end and set under one end of the cake Decorate the eyes and nostrils with the candies (I use M&M's).
