Sountrack: Flogging Molly
Supplies: angel food cake pan big bowl ziplock bags whisk spatula Ingredients: (topping) 1 box white cake mix *and eggs/oil that it calls for! food coloring frosting
apparently i’m on a baking kick…with a few tweaks
the website linked does a really good job explaining this recipe – honestly it is so so easy to mix up these colored batters. just pull together a basic white cake box mix and divide the batter into ziplock bags. put the most amount of batter in the one that you plan on adding red food dye to and scale down as you progress through the rainbow. leave some plain white to put in the bottom of the pan.
make a layer of plain white batter. cut a small!! hole in the corner of red ziplock bag and make a rather large ring. repeat process with all of the colors - making smaller and smaller rings as you layer the colors.
bake according to directions on cake box.
i opted to move away from the green grass theme and leprechaun trap and instead frosted mine with fluffy vanilla clouds.
- i should have flipped the cake over and covered entirely with white frosting but i thought the rainbow effect looked way too awesome to hide. i flipped it using a cake stand and pie plate just before serving and it turned out great.
- final result photos should have been prior to end of St. Patricks day meal and copious amounts of wine. it really looked impressive but unfortunately the only proof is this wee bit tragic looking pic…
