Zebra Cake

I saw this zebra cake on Baking Bites and I thought it was the coolest thing ever! lol.. So I decided that I wanted to give it a try but I wasn't really in the mood to start baking at 10:00 at night. So I made a Duncan Hines boxed cake.. I know, I cheated lol. I figured that it was all about the technique and it really didn't matter what kind of cake I made or what color it was, and it didn't. I made it pink and purple and I liked it! =P

If you want to try it out, Here's what you do:

After you've made your cake of choice split your batter in half and add whatever color food coloring you'd like. Take 3 tablespoons of one color and put it directly in the center of the pan. Then take the other color and put it right in the middle of the last color you put down. Repeat that until you've finished putting all the batter into the pan. Just make sure that you don't shake the pan or move it around so it will spread. You have to let it spread on its own! It seems like it isn't spreading until you get to the last few tablespoons of batter and then you notice how much it actually spread. Good luck! =]

Kinda looks like Pac Man, No? lol.. I decorated with some neon
dinosaur sprinkles and plain pink and purple sprinkles..
It was so good, I love Duncan Hines!..
I made them opposite, I think i like the bottom layer better though =]
