Marbled Team Colors Bundt Cake

I don’t know about y’all, but sometimes…cake mix happens. It just does, and I’m okay with that. Some weekends you go out of town, and then have zero time for baking. But you really have to bake a cake. So cake mix it is! Typically I keep one or two in my pantry just in case. If I have learned anything from baking, it’s that it’s always good to have a back-up plan. Definitely red velvet during football season, since one of UA’s colors is crimson. (The color of champions. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Today, I decidedย to shareย how I like to doctor up my cake mixes on those rare occasions that I do use them. This cake is specifically made for tailgating and game-watching. So if you’re cooking up a lot of food for the game, I think a cake mix could come in handy. I used red velvet and white cake mixes because those are my team colors, but you could just use white cake mix and whatever food colorings you want.

My real goal for this cake was to get a nice swirl. First I added a layer of red velvet cake batter to my bundt cake pan, and then topped it with white cake batter. The layers get repeated one more time, or until the pan is about 3/4 full. If you’re using two cake mixes like I did, you’ll probably have a little batter of each leftover. Then I used a long toothpick and went through the middle of the batter one time.

That’s it! Came out perfectly swirly. I think if the batter had been thinner, I coulda squeezed some extra layers in there.

So if you’re looking for a cake that’s perfect for game day, try a marbled bundt cake! In addition to being easy to make, you don’t have to worry about frosting a layer cake. You can just drizzle some glaze or powdered sugar on top. It’s easier to serve than a layer cake too. And lastly, I think if you’re travelling somewhere, whether it’s a college campus for a tailgate or a party at your friend’s house, transporting a bundt cake is a lot less nerve racking than transporting a layer cake, or even cupcakes. I’m just always afraid those things are going to fall over in my car. And I’ve definitely had frosting slide off a cake while in the car before.

Speaking from experience here, people. Go with the marble bundt cake!
