I have been so inspired by all the multi-colored cakes around that I tried another, I previously made Summer Solstice cupcakes.
My mom works for the US Army and her office was having a bar-b-que luncheon. I had this idea of a camouflage cake for a while, I was going to make it for the Army's birthday but didn't get to it in time.
The finished product!
So I had a ribbon cake pan and made one for my mom's luncheon.
I made one and I guess because this oven is new to me, I used gel food coloring that I had never used before, gas oven, and the oven is in Celsius the cake burned on the top and bottom but was basically still liqued in the middle, but I cup the top and bottom off and saved it for my mom and I at home! Lol
These are pictures of the batter I used for that one.
The different colors that I mixed up.
The batter in the pan(cake 1).
Then after my mom went to the store to get me more ingredients I tried again. My mom helped me determine the done-ness since the cake hated me! Lol The second cake was still liquedy in the middle too, so we kept checking it over and over and finally took it out. It burned the top slightly. I think maybe the pan sucks and that's part of the issue too!
Then I iced the cake and made it look like a yellow ribbon(yellow is for the soldiers). I had only used a piping bag once before(on my summer solstice cupcakes) so I didn't really know what to do. But I think it came out ok!
The pic of the top of the cake is at the top of this post!
Then when we cut it at my mom's work everyone thought it was pretty cool!
Needless to say there wasn't anything left!
