Expert Tips

You can use different food coloring to use this recipe for another occasion.

Independence Day is almost here and the best way to celebrate is with a patriotic cake. One fun way to celebrate with the kids at home is by having them help with this cake. Pass them a spoon and let them mix in the food coloring. I'm sure you'll be able to use this recipe for other occasions.

You can use orange or almond extract instead of lemon zest.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. You'll need a bundt cake mold (10x3 1/2), greased and floured.
  • 2 Prepare the cakes as per the instructions found on the box, remember to double the amount because you're using two boxes.
  • 3 Once everything is well combined you'll need to divide the mixture into 3 medium bowls. Two of the bowls will be 3 cups each. Once they have been divided, pour the contents of the red food coloring packet into one of these bowls and the blue into the other. Mix well using a rubber spatula.
  • 4 The rest of the mixture, about 4 cups, will remain in its original color.
  • 5 You can start filling the mold with a ladle. One spoonful of each color layered on one at a time until you finish the mixes. You don't have to move the mold, just let the colors mix themselves as you pour.
  • 6 Bake for approximately 1 hour and use a knife to make sure it's ready.
  • 7 Remove from the oven and let cool completely before removing from the mold.
