5. St. Patty's Day Cake -This cake is easier than you think. You will need to make three 8 inch cakes. Color each batter with green food coloring. Each should be a different shade of green, darker to lighter. After baked and cooled, place toothpicks around the cake measuring evenly from the bottom. Use a string and wrap it around the center of the cake. Be sure the string is even all the way around and you have enought to cross in the front. Cross the string and grab each end then pull.. The string will split your cake evenly. (see helpful tip #155) Then stack each layer with frosting in between from dark colors to light. Frost entire cake and enjoy.
