How to make a tie-dye cake

The first step is making your base cake mix.

Preheat your oven to 350. Combine your flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.

Cream your butter then add in your sugar. Next, add in the vanilla, eggs, and milk and mix until combined.

Add the flour until parts and blend well without over mixing.

Now comes the fun part, adding the colors! To start you’ll want to divide the batter into three even parts.

Add red gel food coloring to one, green gel food coloring to another, and leave the third part plain white. (Tip: Make the red and green darker than you think it needs to be as it will lighten upon baking.)
