  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups Country Crock® Spread
  • 6 large eggs

  3. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes on wire rack; remove from pans and cool completely.
  4. Frosting and Filling: Beat confectioners sugar, Spread and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Cut a hole in the center of 2 of the layers using a 3-inch round cutter; remove. (Discard the circle slices or enjoy them while decorating!)
  5. Put 1 of the cake layers with a hole on serving plate. Frost top with some of the frosting. Top with the other layer with hole; frost top. Fill hole with candies. Place the remaining layer on top. Frost top and sides with remaining frosting. Decorate, if desired, with colored sprinkles. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
