Here’s a simple homemade cake mix for ya.  I halved the recipe for mine.  We were going for a thinner two layer cake for this particular occasion.  I spunked it up though and added purple food coloring for my granddaughter’s birthday party.  She was doing a very colorful party theme.

The frosting I made for this was a Creamy Whipped Nutella Frosting.  Man that was some awesome frosting.  You could use any frosting you want, but this went real well and was a huge hit!

Sometimes I just want to go the easy route. OK, I do that a lot actually.  But this cake was easy to make and was AH….something to taste. Very fluffy and light. No hard to find ingredients here. You probably have all of the ingredients on hand right now.


Sorry about the picture quality and lack of some.  First, it was crazy making all the food that day and then I had to wait to take the final pictures during the party with a room FULL of people.  If you’re a food blogger like me, then you know the staging is not that easy with everyone all up in your way.

Have you ever dyed a cake?
