PREPARE cake batter and bake in two 9-inch round layer pans as directed on package. Cool in pans 15 min. (Do not remove cake layers from pans.) STIR boiling water into dry gelatin mixes at least 2 min. until completely dissolved. Pierce cakes with large fork or skewer at 1/2-inch intervals. Pour half the gelatin over each cake layer in pan. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
UNMOLD one of the cake layers onto serving plate; spread with 1/2 cup of the whipped topping. Unmold second cake layer; carefully place on top of cake layer on plate. Frost top and side of cake with 2 cups of the remaining whipped topping. Tint remaining whipped topping with food coloring; spread on top of cake to resemble ice rink. Outline outside edge of "ice rink" with decorating gel. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
DECORATE top of cake with candies. Add graham snacks for the "ice skaters." Decorate ice cream cones with green decorating icing; place around ice rink. Sprinkle cake with the coconut and powdered sugar. Serve immediately or refrigerate up to 2 hours before serving. Store leftover cake in refrigerator.
KRAFT KITCHENS TIPS

How To Remove Cake From Pan Dip cake pan in warm water for 15 sec. to soften any gelatin in the bottom of the pan. Invert cake onto wire rack, then remove cake pan.
