  1. Prepare cakes according to package directions using eggs, oil and water, adding lemon peel to the batter. Bake one 8-inch round and one 9-inch round. After cakes have cooled, trim around the 8-inch layer so that it's 6 inches in diameter. Place 9-inch layer on a 12-inch platter or cake circle. Spread some frosting in the middle of the 9-inch layer and center the 6-inch layer on top. Cover cake with a smooth layer of frosting. (Note: You may not need to use all of it, but you never want to skimp on a party cake.) If desired, score frosting with a fork to resemble the basket weave look of a straw hat. Unwrap fruit roll and use as a hat band, loosely tying at the back and allowing the ends to trail down the back of the brim.
