This was a serious cake. I was celebrating a 14th birthday this past weekend… The birthday girl’s favorite color is pink, so I decided it was the perfect time to try out the fading layer cake which I have been dying to make. This cake is actually really simple. The main thing you need to know is that you need to make white (not yellow) cake, and you need to only use egg-whites (instead of full eggs.) The colors won’t be as pure if your cake is off-white in any way. I used this food coloring for the “electric pink” color (this color paste was also used here.) Basically, you want to start with a drop or two of food coloring, and continue to add more for each batch. The downfall to the coloring paste was that it didn’t come out in drops, so I was guestimating — I also only have two circle pans, so this process took kind of a long time, and it was a tad more difficult not being able to see the 6 batches of dyed cake batter next to each other. But all in all, I think it came out great and it was completely worth the work and huge mess it made in my kitchen! She was completely shocked to cut into the cake and realize it was so much more on the inside then it seemed from the outside.
