Polka Dot Cake.
I live for these kinds of creations.
For me, it was love at first sight. I knew immediately that I would make it, even if it meant buying yet another kitchen applicance, the cake pop maker.
Totally worth it….the cake and the pop maker.
I made the Polka Dot Cake for my son’s 6th Grade graduation pot luck. It joined the Purple Ombré Cake that I wrote about here, a tiered marble and rainbow cake and some rainbow cupcakes. Here I am with my cakes.
It is so cool to see the delighted faces when the inside polka dots are revealed as the cake is sliced.
The biggest problem with serving the cakes at a school function was trying to get some good photographs of the insides without the kids and other parents thinking I was a freakin’ nutcase. :)
2 boxed white cake mixes (plus the oil, water and eggs to make them according to the package)
Your favorite icing (I used this buttercream recipe)
Sprinkles or candy to decorate the cake
Cake Pop Maker
Food coloring gel in the colors of your choice
Bowls to divide batter
3 (6 Inch) cake tins
1. Turn on cake pop maker to warm it up.
2. Make batter from one of the cake mixes according to package directions.
3. Divide batter evenly into bowls based on the number of colors you want to use. (three or four colors is good). Color the batter using food gels.
4. Following the directions for cake pop maker, make cake balls using each of the colors. Cool.
5. Preheat oven to 350℉.
6. Prepare the second cake mix according to package directions. Grease the 6″ round pans with non-stick spray and set a circle of parchment paper in the bottom of each one.
8. Bake layers for about 30 minutes until a tester comes clean.
9. Turn cake layers onto a rack to cool completely.
10. Decorate as desired.

Recipe from eASYbAKED. Definitely check out Ruthanne’s gorgeous cake and lovely photos. She has also put together a ‘Tips and Tricks’ section for her readers who had some problems making the cake.
Well, this song is just perfect for today. Cheerful and covered in polka dots.
Also the band cites cakes and bubbles among their interests, so even better.
