1
box white angel food cake mix
1 1/4
cups water

2
containers fluffy white whipped ready-to-spread frosting
Teal, bright green and yellow gel food color

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Make and bake cake mix as directed on box using water. Immediately turn pan upside down onto a heatproof funnel or bottle. Let cake hang about 2 hours or until completely cool. Remove from pan.
  • 2 Use 1/2 cup of the frosting to thinly coat surface of cake. Add 3 to 4 drops teal color to 3/4 cup frosting to make desired color, add 3 to 4 drops green color with 3/4 cup frosting and add 3 to 4 drops yellow color to remaining 1 cup frosting for desired colors.
  • 3 Frost cake with a horizontal strip of teal, a horizontal strip of green and a horizontal strip of yellow to cover the cake completely and down the center. Use an offset spatula to blend the colors together to achieve a watercolor appearance. Top cake with paper bunting for decoration, if desired.
Tips  

To make paper bunting, cut a 12-inch piece of kitchen twine or string. Cut 9 small triangles out of paper cupcake liners. Wrap wide end of each triangle base around twine and secure with tape. Tie ends of twine around two straws or wooden skewers. Press ends of straws into top of cake.
