Picture #1 The only two ingrediants (2 boxes of cake mix and 24 oz. of clear pop) in the cake PLUS my two special ingredients (vanilla extract and a little applesauce). You can do the pop thing with any white cake recipe, apparently, and just bake it according to the directions on the box/recipe
#2 What happens when you put pop and cake mix together.
#3 The six pretty colors
#4 Just before going into the oven
#5 Halfway baked
#6 Done baking and cooling down
#7 My hideous frosted cake (24 oz. generic Cool Whip and two small boxes of vanilla pudding, with a little milk). I was worried that I wasn't going to have enough (I used a lot to hold the brittle cake together) so I mixed more in that I had on hand.
#8 After the cake had been cut into
Just some notes
This was a YUMMY cake! It had FANTASTIC flavor; it just didn't turn out very pretty is all. I think this recipe (the pop thing) would work better as a single layer cake. I have made several layered cakes, but I have never had so much trouble before. I had a request from our 4 1/2 year old nephew (who doesn't really care for sweet stuff) and our 2 1/2 year old neice for a rainbow cake. My oldest sister is even trying to think of an excuse to have one. My entire family loved it, despite how bad it went together. M isn't big on sweet stuff, although he eats them now and then, but even he loved it too. Needless to say it was a big Memorial Day weekend campout hit!
I must say this. I have been looking for a good homemade white cake recipe for a long time and haven't found one. I take that back... I found a good one once, but the recipe got lost. This is really good though!
Although it got put together really badly, my dear friend C told me something very improtant once, "Never apologize for anything that comes out of your kitchen." I live by that now.
