So I made the cake parts, not once but TWICE yesterday and whined & moaned almost the entire time... LOL!!!! Now I have it figured out and tweaked the recipe to fit ME! :-D
Buy 2 WHITE cake mixes (one will be coloring w/ red food coloring, the other blue)
One cake mix at a time add 3 eggs, 1 & 1/4 cup buttermilk and 1/3 cup veg oil
ONLY TO THE RED BATTER WILL YOU ADD 1 Tbs of unsweetened cocoa powder
(which makes a cheating version of red velvet cake)
TO THE BLUE BATTER ADD 1 tsp. of almond extract
Beat each for 2 minutes in your mixer
Bake each in a PAM sprayed 8" pan for about 45 min or until set. (your making 2 different cakes)
Cool then, cut outer edges off so you get the pretty color inside. Then cut into big chunks for layering.
1 pint of whipping cream & 1/2 cup sugar to peaks, set aside
Whip/Beat/Mix until fluffy
2 - 8 oz. pkgs of cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar & 2 tsp. of vanilla
Then fold all together, thats your whipped layer.
blue chunks, cream, red chunks, cream, blue, red, then more cream then top with sliced strawberries & blueberries
Keep chilled :-)
