I decided to try out the Halloween rainbow cake technique, with different colors. The perfect recipient is a community member who is currently battling breast cancer. Since October is breast cancer awareness month, pink seemed to be the way to go.
I followed the recipe, with my base cake being strawberry (pink). I then used white cake, dividing it in half. I left half white and used Wilton icing color in Rose.
When it came time to ice the cake, I divided one can of white frosting into thirds. I kept 1/3 white, colored 1/3 light pink, and colored the final 1/3 neon pink (Wilton icing color in Rose).
Here’s the cake:
With the extra strawberry cake batter, I made cupcakes, iced with the light pink frosting and topped with hot pink sugar sprinkles.
