Ingredients to use

  • Use moist plain cake mix or opt to take 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1 and ¼ cups of water
  • 1/3rd cup of vegetable oil
  • 3 gel food colors or paste form of food colors like green, blue, red and orange


For the frosting

  • 3 pounds of white chocolate bars or squares that are chopped
  • 3 tbsp of whipped cream
  • ½ cup of butter
  • 3 cups of powdered sugar

How to make?

You need to preheat the oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit. Spray the bottom of the baking pan with cooking spray and set aside. Take a large bowl in which you need to start mixing the cake batter ingredients like eggs, oil and water along with the flour or cake mix. In case you are starting from scratch, you need to add the baking soda to the flour and sift the same. Put it aside and beat the eggs separately, with a whisker or an electric mixer. Once the egg mixture is white and frothy, add in the oil and the sugar. Mix the same at medium speed for about two minutes. Divide the batter now in four medium bowls. Add in the food colors in each of the bowls that will give you different colored cake batter. Take the cake pan and add in different colored layers. By alternating the colors you will form a psychedelic cake mix.


Alternate the colors and allow the cake to bake for about thirty minutes or more till a toothpick inserted comes out without any sticky batter on it. Allow the cake to cool. Meanwhile, add the whipping cream along with white chocolate and microwave on high heat for a minute. Cool the mixture and beat in butter along with powdered sugar. Add in the white chocolate and mix well. Add in the remaining sugar as well and beat the mixture till it becomes smooth. Now you can add in orange food color and use the frosting to layer it on top of the cake.
