|Red Bandanna Birthday Cake.|
Note: In the years before I started this blog Grandpa was a "Cowboy Shooter" and shot in many as well as sponsored many S.A.S. sanctioned Cowboy Shooting Matches, thus the cowboy motif.
Here is how they did it.
First they buttered and floured a 12" cake pan and 2, 9" cake pans and preheated the oven per the package directions using 2 German Chocolate cake mixes. Next they prepared the mixes per the directions. They used 1/2 of the batter in the 12" round pan and baked it per the 9 x13 directions and split the other half between the 9" pans and baked according to the time given on the box.
After cooling for 10 minutes they removed the layers from the pans and completely cooled on racks.
Using 4 cans of canned plain white butter cream frosting and black food color paste they colored 1 1/2 cans black and frosted the 1st layer reserving about 1/2 cup for pipping. They placed the first 9" layer centered on the 12" layer and frosted then the second both with plain white butter cream.
Next Emily pipped on the black and Katie the white in the bandanna pattern!
Needless to say Grandpa was IMPRESSED! Thanks girls!
