I'm posting this because of the photos and the technique, not for the recipe itself.

As we have some very talented cake bakers on this forum, I'm sure they can do this with their own recipes.

I think it is spectacular and there are many other colors that would work in the same way.

Meagan have you seen these before http://www.healthykidz.com.au/about-us/make-it-yourself/natural-food-colourings - I have never used them but maybe they are a little better than the normal food colorings?

Here in the US we can get  India Tree Natural food colors  They are located in Seattle, Washington state.

There should be something similar available in other countries.

Sure you might need to remind me though! I have so many recipes in the 'to post' pile but just never seem to have the time!! I am at the outdoor cinema at the moment. Waiting for DH to bring the pizza and the muppets to start Smiley child free!

Interesting looking cake - but I agree re the artificial colours
And also using cake mixes. I have a woman's weekly baking book that's lovely save for the fact that it tells you to use a cake mix for some of the party cakes. Not even an alternative recipe given. Though I realise I could do something of my own.  Just irks me that the focus is on what it looks like with no apparent consideration for taste or health.

Rant over. I too appear to be tired and cranky! Sorry.
