Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Size Wise
Enjoy a serving of this cake on occasion, but keep portion size in mind. One cake makes enough for 16 servings.
How to Prevent Air Bubbles
To release any air bubbles from the cake batter, lightly tap cake pans on counter before baking. Any small air bubbles will rise to the surface.
How to Keep the Cake Plate Clean
Make 4-inch square in centre of cake plate with 4 (3-inch-wide) strips of waxed paper. Stack and frost cake layers as directed in centre of waxed paper square. Any frosting drippings will land on the waxed paper, keeping the plate clean! Remove waxed paper strips after frosting top and side of cake with remaining Cool Whip mixture.
How to Swirl Batter
Use a teaspoon to swirl the 2 colours of batter. It is perfect for lifting and pulling the 2 colours together. Do not overswirl, or the colour of the cakes will be all pink and not marbled.
How to Store
Store in refrigerator.
