Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat two 8-inch round cake pans with cooking spray. Prepare the cake mix as directed; divide the batter between the pans and bake as directed. Let cool 15 minutes, then remove to a rack to cool completely.

Step 2

Trim the domed tops of the cakes with a long serrated knife to make them level. Spread frosting on one cake layer, then invert the other layer on top. Spread a thin layer of frosting around the outside of the cake and on top. Reserve 1/4 cup frosting for the wasabi.

Step 3

Melt the candy melts in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, until smooth. Add the cereal and stir.

Step 4

Mark a 3 1/2-inch circle in the middle of the cake with a paring knife. Arrange the dried mango in half of the circle, trimming as needed. Toss the apple with the lemon juice and arrange cut-side up next to the dried mango, pushing it into the cake.
