  3. Frost the top of the cooled cake with a thin 1/4″ layer of frosting.
  4. Attach a size 12 (or similar size) decorating tip to a decorating bag and fill it with frosting.
  5. Squeeze the frosting out over the cake randomly to look like spaghetti until the entire cake is covered

The Garnishments

The “Meatballs”

  • 12 Chocolate Wafer Cookies
  • 1/2 cup Buttercream Frosting
  • 1 Tbsp Cocoa
  1. Crush the cookies to a crumbly consistency.
  2. Mix together with frosting and cocoa.
  3. Form the mixture into  five or six 1 &  1/2 inch “meatballs.”
  4.  Place them randomly on top of the frosting “noodles.”

The “Marinara Sauce”

  1. Stir well, one jar of Strawberry Preserves.
  2. If necessary add water 1 tsp at a time until it is the consistency of thick spaghetti sauce.
  3. Pour mixture over the top of the cake to look like spaghetti sauce.

The “Parmesan”

  1. Crush one or two vanilla wafer cookies and sprinkle over the top of the cake to look like Parmesan Cheese.
