Add food coloring. a teeny bit at a time and cocoa powder, to tint the frosting until the color resembles cooked spaghetti, Be careful because if you add to much, you can't go back.

  6. Spread 2 cups of the frosting in an even thin coat over cake.
    Fill a pastry bag with some of the remaining frosting. Use a #5 plain piping tip . Beginning at bottom edge of cake, pipe "spaghetti" strands around sides, looping and overlapping all over the bottom area working upward. Using up frosting and refilling bag as needed, continue pipping so strands are densely piped around sides, extend those nearest top slightly higher than top edge of cake, creating a well.

    2 jars strawberry preserves-equal to 20 ounces together
    White chocolate
    In small saucepan, heat preserves over very very low heat, stirring until just barely warm and pourable. Transfer 1/2 cup :"sauce" to pie pan. Put meatballs in sauce in dish, roll to coat.
