Ruffle Birthday Cake

Ruffle Birthday Cake

 




I made this cake in pastel colors yesterday and it turned out great!
For the cake, butter cake recipe that I usually made it.
Separate batter into 3 bowls with about 1 cup of cake mix per bowl. Add desired food coloring to each bowl (purple, pink and green).

Bake cakes in 6" round pans, but make sure you check the cake about 10 minutes before it’s supposed to be done. With less mix in each pan, they can cook faster.
For the frosting, mix together softened (room temperature) butter and softened (room temperature) Crisco vegetable shortening until well combined. Add strawberry flavor Combine. Slowly add in powder sugar.

Cake assembly:

I try to first level, each layer of cake with a large bread knife. For the rainbow cake, especially if all the layers are level, then they will evenly display when you cut into it.

Start with the green layer first. Put the green layer on your cake stand or plate. Add enough frosting to cover the layer and some to spill over the edges, anywhere from 1/2 to one cup of frosting. Run the
flat, straight side of a knife around the cake to smooth out the edges.

Add the final layer of the cake (purple color). Put frosting in the middle, start spreading out frosting with the flat, straight side of a knife so that it covers the cake and falls out over the edges. Then run your knife, around the outside edge of the cake to smooth out the sides.

Put the cake into the fridge for at least 2 hours or freeze for 1 hour.
Repeat with pink layer.
Put cake into fridge for at least 2 hours or freeze for 1 hour.
Cover cake with marshmallow fondant.
