For the cake you will need:
1 box Super Moist Cake Mix (white or vanilla)
Required ingredients for cake mix (eggs/oil/water)
Red Food Gel (coloring)
Blue Food Gel (coloring)
Sprinkles of choice (I actually changed my mind at the last minute and used jimmies instead)
Bundt pan of choice
Pam & Flour or Wilton's Cake Release
Separate batter equally into 3 bowls. Add red coloring to one bowl and mix well. Add blue coloring to another bowl and mix well. Leave the 3rd bowl of batter as is.
Step 6: Take the platter you want to serve the cake on and put it upside down on top of the exposed cake above. Then carefully hold the platter and the bottom of the bundt pan and flip the two over together to get your cake onto the center of the platter gently :) The cake should just "slide" out!!
For the icing you will need:
Homemade Buttercream Recipe (4c powdered sugar, 1 stick butter, 1/2c Crisco, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 Tbsp milk)
Red food gel (coloring)
Blue food gel (coloring)
3 sandwich ziplocks or piping bags
Step 7: Make a batch of buttercream icing & put 1/3 of it into a sandwich size ziplock for piping. *note: to hold ziplock open while filling it with icing, place it into a cup and fold edges over the rim of the cup
Step 8: Put another 1/3 of icing into a bowl and set aside for a moment. Then to the remaining last 1/3 of icing in the mixer, add red coloring and mix well.
Step 9: Put the red icing into a separate ziplock. Then add blue coloring the icing in the bowl and mix well. Put blue icing into a separate ziplock.
Step 10: Cut a corner off each icing bag with scissors. Drizzle the icing over the cake & add sprinkles!
Step 11: Cut & Enjoy!!
