This cake is a easy cake to make. You can get yr kids
involved and their enthusiasm will make the process easy.

The colors of the cake were so appeasing but what made me
try this cake are the ingredients. Very different and yet
easily available at home.

I followed the recipe, but added less sugar and was wondering
how it wud turn out after it was baked.

I have no regrets. It was a yummy cake and I plan to
double the portions for my daughters upcoming birthday party
for sure the kids will love the zany colors.

Must try recipe!
