Servings: 10 pieces
- 1 Box vanilla cake mix + ingredients to make it (from the box)
- Gel food coloring
Preheat oven to 350°F for metal and glass pan(s) or 325°F for dark or coated pan(s). Grease sides and bottom of pan(s) and flour lightly.
In a large mixing bowl, combine ingredients from the box cake mix. BE SURE TO USE ONLY EGG WHITES SO THAT THE MIX STAYS WHITE INSTEAD OF YELLOW.
Divide the cake batter into as many bowls as you want colors.
Drop 1-2 drops of gel food coloring into each different bowl. Mix each bowl until the desired color is achieved for each bowl.
In the cake pan, scoop ¼ cup cake mix batter (first color) and pour into pan. This will be your "base color." (If you are using a long pan, place two round scoops, so there are two round scoops side-by-side.)
Drop the next color in a ¼ cup scoop on top of the base color. Repeat process with all colors, pouring them on top of each other, until the cake mix is gone.
Bake cake according to package directions. Add 3-5 minutes to bake time for dark or coated pan(s). Cake is done when a toothpick inserted into the middle is clean. Cool completely before assembling and icing.
If you want a more camouflage cake or swirl cake, drop the batter side-by-side in the pan instead of top of each other.
