Mardi Gras Cake


White Cake Mix
2 Containers Whipped Vanilla Frosting
Vegetable Oil
3 Eggs
Food Coloring
Sprinkles, optional, for topping


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together cake ingredients according to box instructions. Separate the batter into (3) bowls or however many bowls you are going to add different food coloring to.
  3. Add a few drops of food coloring to each bowl of batter and stir. Pour into your baking pans.
  4. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let cool completely.
  5. Remove cake from pans and place the bottom layer on a plate or cake stand. Gently level off the top using a bread knife. You don’t want the top of each layer to be domed.
  6. Add a layer of frosting. Then place another layer of cake on top and gently level off the top. Repeat until all layers have been assembled.
  7. Add sprinkles to the top and chill until ready to serve.
