Bake a box mix cake using instructions on the box. (Doesn't matter if vanilla or chocolate). Cut in half.
Frost half the cake and flip the other side on top of it.
Place unto serving platter with wax paper sheets underneath.
Begin frosting the top of the cake. It helps to put a large dollop and spread around so that the cake doesn't "smear."
Then carefully complete the sides.
Place a heaping dollop of frosting onto the middle of the cake. Then, lay Fruit Rollup strips coming in a cross shape from the middle (like a present). Snip at ends, when the Rollup reaches the plate.
Cut remaining Fruit Rollups into 2-3 inch strips.
Roll into circles and press on ends, sticking them to each other.
Place them onto the middle dollop. Pull out wax paper sheets from the bottom.
Add gingerbread cookies to the sides of the cake, 2 on each side.
Enjoy your present!
