Firecracker Red White and Blue Cake

I discovered this cake searching for something to make for 4th of July 3 years ago…  The Firecracker Red White and Blue Cake


It was really easy to do – and people seemed pretty impressed by it…



I even made it with different colors over the past few years for different occasions – Orange, Blue, and White are for Syracuse basketball games…


Here’s how you make it…

1 box Betty Crocker Supermoist white cake mix
vegtable oil
egg whites
food coloring
frosting and toppings

Step 1: Heat oven to 325. Grease bunt cake pan. Make cake batter like the box tells you. Pour the cake batter into 3 bowls. Mix your food coloring into you bowls making your colors (one should be white).

Step 2: Pour one color into cake pan. Pour white into cake pan. Pour second color into cake pan.

Step 3: Bake as directed on the box. Let cake cool.

Step 4: frost and decorate your cake after it cools.

Microwaved chocolate cake…

Last night I was dying for cake.  I don’t know what it was.  I just HAD TO HAVE CAKE.  I was like well, I dont want to go out and buy a piece of cake…. I could make a cake!  I have everything to make a cake… but then I’d have to wait.  So I googled microwave cake for one……. which I’ve heard about before because my sister said she did it I think.  So I made chocolate cake for one in the microwave.  I should have expected it to be just as good as microwaved chicken nuggets… not very good but done within minutes.  Sooo… I’d put the recipe up here but I don’t recommend it (you could easily google it yourself if you wanted).  Take the time to bake your cakes not microwave them.
