I first saw a tutorial for this on Pinterest, and now I have no idea which website it was. So I do not know who to give the credit for this. But it is AWESOME, and so much fun!! All you need is 1 box of white cake, water, oil, eggs, food coloring, and as many smaller bowls as you have colors. Let the fun begin. I took pictures of pretty much every step along the way to make things super easy for the novice baker... sort-of like me. :) Here ya go.
Start with the essentials. I went with the 4 egg white option.
Add in your oil, eggs, and water.
Mix them all together.
Divide the mix into as many bowls as you will have colors.
I mixed red & blue to have purple for my 5th color! <3
The more food coloring you put in, the darker the color will become.
I love how they all look, sitting there all happy, and just waiting to get baked and eaten!
Now, randomly plop all your colors in your cake pan.
I think it looks like the food in the food fight scene of the Robin Williams movie 'HOOK'.
Happy, colorful, dirty dishes.
I wasted a lot only using 1 knife to mix all the colors. So to stop this, use different utensils for each color.
It's getting there!
Hot from the oven!
Another tip--- If you ever use whipped frosting, do not try to ice a warm cake. It will not get all melty and yummy looking, it will separate! I got whipped by mistake. Next time I will definitely pay more attention when picking up frosting!
