Bake a cake in two layers, as directed on Betty Crocker White Cake Mix package.

Cool thoroughly and cut each layer in half, like picture below.

Using 2 packages, make Betty Crocker Creamy White Frosting Mix as directed on package, being careful to double amounts of butter and water.

Spread frosting on one side of three halves. Set halves side-by-side on cut edges with icing between to form a long rounded cake which makes the igloo.

Place in custard cup

1 square unsweetened chocolate (1 ounce) 1/4 teaspoon shortening

Set cup in a little hot water in saucepan. Heat until melted. Remove saucepan from heat, but leave custard cup in hot water.

Frost igloo with remaining icing. Pictured in color on page 40.

After icing is no longer soft and has a slight crust on top, mark igloo lines very lightly with a knife using a ruler as a guide. Then dip a small paintbrush into melted chocolate and paint along lines.

There is a color photograph of the Igloo Cake on page 40.
