I'll be sure and post more pictures once the cake is complete... I have to admit... I'm a bit giddy:)
Some tricks for this effect? Knowing the approximate weight of your batter helps... I knew I needed to divide my batter into roughly 6 - 8 ounce portions. I chose the colors purple, orange, yellow, blue, pink and green. I used the Ameri-Colors "electric" colors whenever it was an option. Nothing but vibrant colors here:)
I dolloped the batter by spoonfuls throughout the pans trying to somewhat evenly distribute the colors. When I was finished, I tapped the pan on the counter to make it "settle" into an even layer... then I took a small knife and zig-zagged it through the batter.... first up and down.... then left and right. Not too much! I think it would have made the colors muddled.
Can't wait to get a picture of it being sliced into!
