Red Planet Cake w/ Ice Caps Icing

Not my photo: Credit goes to Lisa over at:
Stop and Smell the Chocolates

This is part of the Mars Collection
Mars aks " The Red Planet" due to the color of the planet.

This cake is a low cholesterol. The icing is very good- you only need a little so that reduces the calories. It is a moist cake, caution it will go fast. Will Serve about 12 people,serving size 3x3 inch piece.

1 package of Betty Crocker Super Moist German Chocolate Cake mix
1+1/3 cup water
1/2 Cup Vegetable oil
3/4 cup Egg beaters with yolk (these EB do not have as much Saturated fat as an egg)
Mix well; beat low speed for 30sec than high for 3 minutes.

I use a silicone baking pan 12x9 inch. Grease only the bottom. The cake will not stick so you need no Flour.

Bake in 325 Fahrenheit degree oven for 25-30 minutes. until a toothpick put in middle comes out clean.
Remove and cool completely in pan.

Ice Caps Frosting

3oz Philadelphia Cream cheese (do not use Low or fat free it does not hold up)
1/2 cup Cool whip Light Whip topping.
2 cups of Powder Sugar.

Cream- Cream cheese and powder sugar together- add Cool whip mix til blended.
remove cooled cake from pan and top with icing. Refrigerate leftovers.
