    6       oz           Vanilla milk chips or

      1/4   c            Light corn syrup

   Grease 13*9 pan; line with waxed paper & grease
   again. Prepare cake as directed in recipe or according
   to pack directions. Cool slightly; carefully remove
   cake from pan. Remove waxed paper from cake; cool
   completely. Invert cake onto large tray or foil
   covered cardboard. Frost sides & top. To prepare
   ribbons & bow, in small saucepan combine vanilla chips
   & corn syrup. Melt over low heat until mixture is
   smooth, stirring constantly. Refrigerate 15-20 minutes
   or until mixture is firm enough to knead. Knead until
   smooth. Divide mixture into 2 parts, making 1/4 & 3/4
   portions. Knead a few drops of green food coloring
   into 1/4 of mixture. Wrap in plastic wrap. Knead a few
   drops red food coloring into 3/4 of mixture. Place red
   mixture between 2 sheets of parchment paper or on
   surface sprinkled lightly with powdered sugar; roll
   out mixture into 16*6 rectangle. With knife or pastry
   wheel, cut lengthwise into 3/4 strips. Place strips
   on cake to resemble ribbon on a package; fold
   additional strips to form bow. Roll out green mixture
   as directed about to 1/8 inch thickness. Using holly
   leaf cutter, cut out 8 leaves. Score veins with tip of
   knife. Tuck leaves around bow for garnish. Sprinkle
   ribbon & leaves with edible glitter.
   
   TIPS: Edible glitter is available at kitchen specialty
   shops.
   
   To keep parchment paper from slipping while rolling
   out ribbons, tape to counter.
