Ingredients


Baking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease two 9x5-inch loaf pans.
  2. Prepare the batters with water, butter and eggs as directed on the package. Pour pink batter in first pan and yellow batter in second pan.
  3. Bake 30 to 33 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean of crumbs.
  4. Cool cakes on wire rack 25 minutes. Remove cakes from pan and cool completely.
  5. Slice each cake horizontally in half lengthwise. Then slice each half vertically to create 4 strips of pink cake and 4 strips of yellow cake. If needed, trim cake strips to even them up.
  6. Place one pink and yellow cake strip side by side on serving platter. Spread frosting on top. Repeat the process three times to make four layers. Make sure you alternate colors each time.
  7. Spread the entire cake with a thin layer of frosting. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Spread remaining frosting on cake.

Tips

Turn it Vegetarian

Turn it Vegetarian

My kiddo is allergic to eggs, so baking a regular cake presents a problem. Here is my solution: Replace the eggs on the back of the box with either flavored soda or applesauce. There is no exact amount. You just add it in until you get the right consistency. Less than one can of coke or root beer for a dark cake, sprite for a white cake, or a flavored soda for a flavored cake or about a cup of applesauce for any flavor should be enough to take care of your vegetarian baking needs!!

Sometimes when I make a large batch of brownies, I line the pan with either parchment paper or foil. After they have cooled, I lift them out of the pan and cut them with a pizza cutter. You can pre=cut them on the edges and roll right thru. Otherwise, if leaving in the pan, use a plastic knife. They seem to glide right thru also..just don't cut while everything is still hot--melted plastic never smells good!
