A Smashing Sneak Peek

I love this little cake (obviously, the cake is not finished in this photo; what would be the fun in that?) 

These little layer cakes are quick and easy for a colorful treat! 

You will need: 
1 box white cake mix (and ingredients)
Food coloring, various
Frosting of choice

To make: 
  • Preheat oven as directed on cake box
  • Grease and flour your baking dishes (it will vary depending on size you want and how many colors)
  • Make cake mix as prepared
  • Divide batter into equal portions in separate bowls
  • Tint divided batter with food coloring (I used quite a bit of food color to make sure my colors were bold) 
  • Bake according to package directions, check with a toothpick
  • Let cakes sit for a few minutes before inverting and allowing to cool on a flat surface (these cakes don’t hold up well against wire cooling racks)
  • Allow cakes to cool all the way before frosting
  • Frost in between each layer of cake to help the layers stick while you stack them
  • Frost the cake
  • Cut into the cake, enjoy the beauty, and then eat up!
