Prep time: 45 mins Baking time: 50 mins. Combine cake mix, 1 pkg of the pudding mix, eggs, water & oil in large bowl. Beat at low speed of electric mixer just to moisten, scraping sides of bowl often. Beat at medium speed 4 mins. Measure 3¼ cups batter; pour into greased & floured 1 ½ qt metal or ovenproof glass bowl. Pour re- maining batter into greased & floured 12" pizza pan. Bake at 350 for 15 mins for the pan & 50 mins for the bowl or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool cakes 10 mins. Remove from pan & bowl; finish cooling on racks. If necessary, cut thin slice from flat end of bowl-shaped cake so that it will lie flat; split horizontally into 3 layers. Pour milk into small bowl. Add remaining pkg of pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk until blended, 1 to 2 mins. Place 12" cake layer on large serving plate or tray. Spread layer with 1 ½ cups of the whipped topping. Center bottom layer of bowl-shaped cake on frosted layer; spread with ⅔ of the pudding. Add second layer; spread with remaining pudding. Add top layer; forming the crown. Spread remaining whipped topping over crown. Sprinkle coconut over cake. Tie ribbon around cake crown to form hat band & bow & garnish with Gumdrop Flowers, if desired. Chill until ready to serve. Makes about 16 servings **Gumdrop flowers: 1. Flatten gumdrops with rolling pin on surface or sheet of waxed paper sprinkled with sugar. Roll until very thin (about 1/16" thick), turning frequently to coat with sugar. 2.

Hold flattened gumdrop at center; overlap edges slightly to give petal effect, pressing piece together at base to resemble flower. For open blossom, bend gumdrop petals outward from center. Insert small piece of gumdrop in centers with wooden pick, if desired. Use wooden pick to attach flowers to cake if necessary. +4-serving size *2-layer size
