Cake is universally loved. I mean, really, who doesn’t like cake? It’s so good that people often invent reasons just so they can have cake... or at least I do. This particular cake is one unlike any I’ve ever seen before, and I know I’m going to have to try this.
The first step is to make a separate cake batter that you divide up into a few small bowls and add a different color to each one. Then, you put each colorful batter into its own piping bag and drizzle the batters on top of each other.
If you ever felt like you had the spirit of Jackson Pollock trapped in you, now’s the time to let it out.
Once it’s fully baked, cut even slices and then cut out your numbers using a cookie cutter.
Next, make another plain cake. Fill another cake pan about 1/3 of the way up with the batter. Place your colorful numbers in the pan in a row, and cover with the remainder of the batter so that the numbers are fully submerged. Toss it back in the oven to bake.
Once it’s done, let it cool and then start frosting.
Next, roll up different colored fondant logs together to make a cool, tie-dye style sheet.
Cover your plain frosted cake with this psychedelic marvel of fondant. Then, take a second to admire it before cutting up a slice of number cake.
I can’t get over how cool that looks. The tie-dye patterns are making me think of the 60’s, and the way the number stands out against the white cake is a really cool effect. If you’ve got any cool cake recipes, be sure to send them our way.
