Pretty & Pink

Hey Loves! F & J here!
Look at this beauty! We are not one's to brag but we have to admit we are really proud of the way this turned out. We have never attempted a multi-layered cake before and we did not even follow any directions! We just made things up as we went along, and it looks like it worked in our favor! 
It took quite a while but we think it was well worth the time.

If you want to make this yourself here's how: 

We took the easy way out, and bought white cake mix, in a box, but obviously you could use your own batter (preferably white, for color sake). 

After mixing it, we filled the pan with a quarter of the plain white batter. Stuck it in the oven moved on to layer two. Remember there is less cake than normal, so it will take less time and you should bake it at a lower temp. We did ours at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for about 12-15 minutes a layer.

Then we added a few drops of red food coloring (you can use whatever color you want), just enough to make a pretty baby pink. Then like the first one we took the same amount out (we used a measuring tool to know how much to put for each layer).

The third and fourth layer we just added more food coloring to make the gradient effect.

After all our layers were baked, we put them on cooling racks, then in the fridge. We waited about an hour to make sure that they were COMPLETELY cool. Even a little warm, will make the frosting melt, and it will be a disaster!

We came back to our cakes and used a knife to make sure all our layers were flat, then came the fun part. We began stacking the cakes, putting a layer of frosting between each other. Then we stuck it back in the fridge, to make sure the frosting was cold. Then we properly iced the whole cake.

When we cut in, the results were really exciting. When the cakes were baked the colors looked whiter, and we thought it didn't work. We were a bit anxious cutting into it, but were pleasantly surprised.

We think that you guys should all try this, because it is not too hard, and looks pretty impressive. We will definitely be making more of these in the future! Share pictures, we love seeing what you guys create!
