Louis's Alligator Cake

10 inch bundt cake
16 oz white buttercream frosting
Green food coloring
Large marshmallows
4 malted milk balls
Gummy spearmint leaves
Green M&Ms
White yogurt-covered pretzels

Cut the cake into 3 equal pieces. Slice one of the pieces in half at a 45 degree angle. Arrange the cake pieces on a tray or platter to create a curvy alligator body. Use one of the angled halves, placed cut-side down, for the tail. Slice the other angled half into 4 equal pieces for feet. Stir drops of food coloring into the frosting until you have a deep green. Frost entire cake. Cut the marshmallows in half and place the halves on the cake for eyeballs. Press malt ball up against for pupil. Press 2 more on nose for snout. Press gummy leaves and m&MS into frosting along the body for scales, and add leaf to foot for toes. Break yogurt pretzels in half and stick them into frosting along the side of the cake to create teeth.
