- Preheat oven according to package directions.
- Spray a Bundt cake pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
- In a large bowl, beat the cake mix, eggs, milk, butter, oil, and vanilla until smooth, about 3 minutes.
- Remove one cup of the batter and place into a smaller bowl; remove another cup of batter and place into another smaller bowl.
- Add red food coloring to one of the smaller bowls and stir until well mixed and until it becomes the shade of red you want (we used about 1/2 tsp).
- Add blue food coloring to the other smaller bowl and stir, adding more color until you achieve the shade you want (again, we used about 1/2 tsp).
- Pour half the white batter into the bottom of the cake pan.
- Next, carefully pour the red batter on top of the white batter, then pour the blue batter on top of the red batter.
- Finish by pouring the rest of the white batter on top. Do not stir the batters together; just layer them one on top of the other.
- Bake according to package directions.
- Remove from oven, let cool for 5 minutes, then remove from the pan and allow to cool on a rack set on a cookie sheet for 30 minutes.
- Heat the can of frosting in the microwave for about 30 seconds on high power, or until it becomes melted and pourable.
- Pour 1/3 of the frosting into one small bowl; pour another 1/3 into another small bowl.
- Add red food coloring to one of the smaller bowls and stir until well mixed and until it becomes the shade of red you want (we used about 12 drops).
- Add blue food coloring to the other smaller bowl and stir, adding more color until you achieve the shade you want (again, we used about 12 drops).
- Using a spoon, drizzle the white frosting on top of the cake, allowing it to drip down the sides.
- Drizzle the red and blue frostings on next, again allowing them to drip down the sides.
- Add sprinkles on top of the frosting before it cools and sets.
Stella and Daniel Antic'S RECIPE NOTES:
This being the week of Independence Day, I’ve been keen on patriotically themed goodies. I was particularly intrigued by the concept of a multicolored Bundt cake, done by layering different colors of batter and letting them meld together in the oven. Here, a moist cake shines in a multitude of patriotic colors. The color combinations can be changed up, too: red and green for Christmas, blue and white for Hanukkah, pink or blue for a baby shower, etc. Be creative!
