Be sure to check out the more recent Rainbow & Peace Sign Wonky Birthday Cake!
Over this past weekend, I baked up a really fun cake! For Jordan’s birthday, she wanted a cake that was tie-dyed on the inside with a peace sign on the outside.
She had been at Kaylees party with the Wonky Peace Sign Rainbow cake and she wanted the same bright colors, but slightly different!
So, here’s how I made the tie-dyed cake in 10″ pans (I had a little batter left over). Sorry about the photo quality… my laptop is in the shop and the computer I’m using won’t read my SD cards, so I took those pics with my cell phone and transferred them from it.
I doubled my recipe for vanilla cake, then divided the batter evenly into 6 bowls. I used Ateco Electric gel colors and made each bowl of batter a different “electric” color: pink, orange, yellow, green, blue, & purple.
Then I started spooning the batter randomly into the prepared pans until they were about half full (again, I had some leftover, but I didn’t want to over fill them and the middle not cook!)…
After baking them, I flipped them out onto a cooling rack…
By the way, I used 2 identical Wilton pans, baked them side-by-side in the oven for the same amount of time… and one got “browner” than the other. Anybody know why? I don’t!
Anywho…then I leveled the tiers (I love how bright these colors are!!).
