How to build a colorful layered cake

Ingredients: (This time I used readymade cake mix)

1. Pillsbury Cooker Cake Mix - 175 gms pack
2. Oil - 1 tbsp
3. Milk - 2/3rd cup
4. Three Leaves brand Edible Food Colours - 2 (green and crimpson red) 1 tsp each
5. Tuti Fruti - 1 tsp each


1. As directed on the back side of the pack, I mixed cake mix, oil and milk in a bowl using a whisk and remove all lumps.
2. Now I poured the cake batter into 3 small bowls which were greased using cooking oil and dusted with a coat of all-purpose flour before hand.
3. To make a layered cake with each layer of a different colour, to one bowl I added red colour, to another green colour and to one I didn't add any colour.
4. Now in pressure cooker I placed a stand and poured 1 inch high water and placed these 3 bowls on the stand and baked the cake as directed on the backside of the pack for about 30 minutes without any whistle on a medium flame.
5. After 1/2 hr remove lid and insert a knife or tooth pick. It should come out clean ensuring ur cake is baked perfectly.

6. Now take out the bowls using tongs and let them cool down completely for 1/2 hr.

7. Now demould the cakes and serve by garnishing with tuti fruti.

Serving Suggestions:

1. I made only 3 layered cake. If you use VIBGYOR colours(VIBGYOR - Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange and Red) then you can make a Rainbow cake which is very popular.
