We’re Expecting A…Baby Cake

Did you just find out that you’re expecting a girl or a boy?  Frost with white frosting and serve cake slices or cupcakes as a creative way to announce the big news!


1 white cake mix

Food coloring (blue or red)

Mix up the white cake mix according to directions.  Pour 2/3 of the cake mix into the prepared pan.  Mix the appropriate food coloring (you know: red/pink for girls, blue for boys) into the remaining 1/3 cake mix.  Make sure you use enough to get a strong color, or the layer will be too subtle.  If you are making a pink cake, start with just 2 drops and test the color so you don’t accidentally end up with a red layer!

Pour the blue (or pink) cake mix on top of the white mix and use a knife to gently swirl the color through the cake; don’t mix it in completely.  Bake according to directions.

When the cake is cooled, frost it with white, blue, or pink frosting of your choice.
