Paint Palette Cake


Yesterday we celebrated my daughter's 7th birthday party will all her little school friends. Her actual birthday is still a few weeks away but because it ends up being in the middle of the summer, many of her friends are gone on vacation. Since my daughter Maia loves art, we decided to book her party at an art studio. To match the theme I created a paint palette cake! I was really happy on how it turned out and she loved it!



The coolest part about the cake was the inside! Here is how you can make your own...


You will need 2 white cake mix boxes. Follow the directions on the packaging. Once your batter is ready, divide it into as many colours as you want to make by pouring it into smaller bowls. (I made six) Next add gel food colour to each bowl, a little at a time until you've reached your desired shade.


Pour your cake batter into your tins, alternating colours as you like (I used two 10 inch round cake pans.) Bake as per box instructions. Cool and ice your cake, decorate as desired! 

Here is a photo of the inside of the cake, isn't it so cool!


Since I like to use fondant to decorate my cakes, I freeze my cake until I am ready to decorate it. This way they are much easier to ice.  


Thanks for visiting today... Hope I have inspired you to add a little colour to your next cake! It sure was fun to make and even better to eat! It will surely be a hit at your party :) Stay tuned for more details on the Paint Party!

Happy Crafting or in this case Baking :)
