1/2 cup butter, softened

5 tablespoons milk
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 red Fruit Roll-Ups, unrolled
Shredded coconut and black food coloring
Assorted candies of your choice:

1 Prepare and bake cake according to package directions, using two greased 9-in. round baking pans. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to cool completely. Cut two pieces from the lower edges of each cake, forming a pirate’s head (save small pieces for another use).

3 For pirate’s bandanna, place Fruit Roll-Ups over top edge of cake. Tint coconut with black food coloring; sprinkle over chin for goatee. Decorate pirate’s features with assorted candies. Yield: 10-12 servings.
