Party Tri-Colour Cake

In case you missed the overview (click here to check it out), here's a little background. M turned 11 last month and wanted to have a colourful party. She chose to invite two friends for a sleepover instead of lots of friends for a shorter party. I plan on posting about several different elements of her party and will link them all back to the overview.

For her cake, M asked for a multicoloured cake. She picked through the food colouring and decided on purple, pink and teal.

First I prepared two boxes of vanilla cake mix, following the directions on the box. Once it was prepared, I separated it into three separate bowls. In each bowl I added some food colouring and stirred until it was evenly mixed. I then baked it according to the directions on the box.

Once the layers had cooled, I put them together with a layer of store-bough vanilla icing in between each colour. Don’t be alarmed that the edges look a little brown; that’s just from baking it.

I finished icing it and added a few sprinkles. From the outside it looks like a plain, vanilla cake.

However once you cut into it you see the beautiful colours.
