Tie-Dyed Cake:)

I just love it when someone asks me to do something I've never done before.  My client's daughter is having a rainbow/tie-dyed theme party.  She asked if I could make a "tie-dyed" cake...    Here's the teaser.... batter in the pan!

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!
