Orange and black frosting dripping over a bundt cake

Hello people of the internet! I've been very addicted to Pinterest lately. October-December is probably my favorite time to use it. I find the themed recipes and decoration so appealing. I came across this absolutely wonderful bundt cake a few weeks ago. It's been calling my name ever since. This cake is simple to make but it's very festive and pretty! I always think my downfall with baking is icing cakes. This one is foolproof! 

Velvety vanilla cake mix, devil's food cake mix, chocolate fudge icing, vanilla buttercream icing, food coloring.

You will need: Vanilla Cake Mix (and all ingredients it calls for), Devil's Food Cake Mix ( and all ingredients it calls for), Chocolate Fudge icing, Vanilla Buttercream, orange food coloring, black food coloring, and purple (or red and blue) food coloring.

Messy kitchen table.

Start by preheating your oven according to the instructions on the cake box. Make your Chocolate cake first. Then take a chopstick and dip the end into your black food dye. Mix that amount into your batter and keep adding dye bit by bit until you achieve a dark enough color. Next pour 3/4 of your batter into a greased bundt tin.

Layer three: orange and black swirl

Make your vanilla cake mix and separate it into two bowls. Add your orange food dye to one and purple to the other. My purple wasn't all that purple unfortunately! Afterwards, start pouring your purple batter on top of the black. Do not stir them. Then pour your orange over that one. I took a little bit of the left over black batter and swirled it on top of the orange batter. You don't have to do that at all. Especially since this with be the bottom of your cake! Now you just need to pop it into the oven. Mine took around 35 minutes to bake even though it said it should take 25 minutes on the box. I just continued to check mine every five minutes until it was baked all the way through.

Orange buttercream frosting

While your cake is in the oven you will need to color your icing. I made the chocolate frosting black and the vanilla, orange. Just keep adding dye until you achieve your desired color.

Take your cake out of the oven and let it cool properly. Once it's cool enough, remove it from the tin and place it on a plate. Let it cool even more before icing it. To get a good consistency for drizzling your icing pop it in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time. I used orange first. I took a spoon and poured little bits of icing over the cake. Then I repeated the process with the black icing. I let it cool off again before serving. I've never been so happy with a cake before!

There you have it! A beautiful marbled and festive cake! This would be so much fun to do with Christmas colors too. It was so delicious too. My family loved it so I guess it was a success! I'm so proud of this little creation and I can't stop looking at all of these pictures!
