Step 1


Use Color Right base colors and QuickCount color formulas to tint batter in the following shades:

? Pink (formula 190): 4 cups batter + 6 P + 8 R

? Yellow (formula 109): 4 cups batter + 1 O + 7 Y

Step 2

Make layered cake. Divide batter into 4-cup portions. Tint each portion following QuickCount color formulas above. Bake and cool three 8 in. cake layers in blue, pink and yellow.

Step 3

Prepare icing. Level, fill and stack layers on cake pedestal, for a 3-layer cake, 5 in. high.

Step 4

Decorate cake. Use toothpick and cake dividing chart to divide cake sides and top into 10 sections. Mark divisions in half to create 20 sections. Use tip 1M, a cut disposable decorating bag and icing to pipe zigzags in each section.
