The Technicolor Birthday Cake

I mentioned last month that I was planning to make Technicolor Cake for my sister's birthday. It was a huge hit and looked very cool. I doubled the recipe (using two boxes of cake mix) and did the Weight Watcher's thing by adding in some diet lemon-lime soda (for ease). The only issue I had was baking time. You are essentially baking an entire box of cake mix in one 8" round pan. That's a lot of cake! That baby baked for 45 minutes and still wasn't totally done. I think that I layered too much cake batter on top -- concentric circles is the key.

We frosted it with strawberry frosting, but agreed that Cool Whip would have been just fine!
