Jelly Bean Cake {yum!}

This is such a fun spring recipe!  We made this yesterday for Easter dessert, but it is a fun one to do all spring long!!  

Just mix up a regular white cake mix.

Divide up the cake mix into several bowls.  Use food coloring to create the desired colors.  I just mixed up the basics:  Red, yellow, blue, purple, orange, and green.

This is where kids love to help!  My nephew was a regular artist.  Just take spoonfuls of colored cake batter and start plopping them into a cake pan, taking turns to create color patterns.  (I used a bundt pan this time, but it works just as well in a  rectangular pan too!). I remember as kids, trying to make sure that we didn't let the same colors touch.  

When you're done, it looks something like this!  Van Gogh couldn't do much better than this lovely work of art!

Bake according to the directions.  I realize I could have decorated this MUCH cuter (how about using green-colored coconut for grass??), but this was an impromptu idea.  So we just went for good ol' yellow frosting.

Then devour. It is lovely with vanilla ice cream.  Just one more...  YUM!

    Adorable cake! My four year old would love all the fun spring colors.

    Since you made it in a bundt pan, you could fill the middle with jelly beans and top the frosting with tinted green coconut and put colorful peep bunnies and chicks on it!

  6. WOW! Bake-a-Holic, I needed you on Sunday. What a fabulous idea. Next year, I am definitely doing a jelly bean cake extravaganza.
