I’ve been obsessed with a blog post for weeks.
A cake. A beautiful verigated cake. Not a rainbow cake that I’ve seen on so many blogs. But a beautiful, mellow, pink shaded cake. I made it today here at the lake.
My 16 yr.oldĀ  nephew from Florida is visiting and my son, Matt, is here, so I had eaters!
The cake is from a blog called Call Me Cupcake
Here’s MY version!

Cake Mix & Bowls
Cake Mix. an assortment of Bowls, and Food Coloring

Butter and Oil
Box calls for Oil. I used 1/4 cup butter and the rest oil to get to 1/3 cup.
Cake Mix & Food Coloring
I added a drop of food coloring after each pan. I made 6 pans of cake. I used Pink Gel coloring and eventually added red to the darker cakes.
Parchment Paper
I used Parchment Paper in the bottom of each pan. I only had 2 pans, so I had to make several circles! I used each pan 3 times to make 6 cakes. I used 5 in the final cake.
Cooled Cakes
