Buttercream Frosting & Colored Cake

Well I really messed this cake up, but that’s okay because it still tasted great! My original plan was to have each layer of the cake be a different color, but when I made the first batch of batter I forgot to dye it before baking so I just made the other 2 layers green and blue. I was also going to make each frosting layer a different color to go with the cake layer color, but since that got messed up I decided to just make the frosting pink. Anyway though, like it said, it still tasted amazing and got eaten so I guess it doesn’t matter!


Here’s What You’ll Need:
-2 boxes of white cake mix (and the ingredients on the box to make cake)
-Food coloring
-2 cups butter
-7 cups powdered sugar (maybe more)
-2 teaspoons milk

-2 teaspoons vanilla
-1/4 teaspoon salt
Directions:
-Make cake mixes according to box
-Divide each cake batter in half into 2 separate bowls (You should have 4 bowls total)
-Add a few drops of different colored food coloring to each bowl
-Pour the batter into 9inch cake bans and bake according to package
-In a large bowl mix together butter, powdered sugar, and salt until well blended
-Add in milk and vanilla and beat several minutes until creamy
-If your icing is too runy or not thick enough add some more powdered sugar
-If you are going to make your icing a different color just add some food coloring to it
-When cakes are finished baking let them cool completely on a wire rack
-After cooling cut off the tops of each cake so they will layer evenly and flat
-Alternate cake layers with icing in between each layer
-Ice the top and sides of the cake
