And it’s not even my birthday…

Proving that good taste doesn’t stop at what we wear and how we live is literally a piece of cake!  We decided to stir things up this week and step into the kitchen to craft this special edition, edible DIY. Everyone knows that true style is all about layering mixed with little pops of surprise…so channel your inner Betty Crocker and sink your sweet tooth into this wildly colorful dessert that’s a feast for both the taste buds and the eyes!

To create, follow the directions on your cake mix and whip up a tasty batter.  We used two boxes of Betty Crocker French Vanilla, and dropped neon food coloring into four separate mixing bowls.  Follow baking instructions and let cool completely.  Slice cakes in half using a sharp serrated knife. We suggest cutting upside-down on paper plates.  This will raise the cake up slightly and make the cutting process easier.  Alternate cake layers, and spread a thin layer of frosting as you stack. Cover the entire cake with a generous coat of frosting to finish off.  Top it off with a cool marbleized effect. CLICK HERE to watch the video showing how to swirl and create an out-of-this-world design! P.S. – If you liked this little taste of culinary crafting, visit our friend Athena Calderone’s fantastic site eye-swoon for more inspiring recipes, and her unique take on design & style!
