Ingredients

    3 cups all-purpose flour
    4 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
    2 1/3 cups sugar
    5 large egg whites, room temperature
    2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    1 1/2 cups milk, room temperature


    1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
    1 packages (12-oz) cream cheese, at room temperature
    4 cups icing sugar, sifted
    1 teaspoons vanilla extract





Tips

Thick batter, great for layering colors. USE WILTON FOOD COLORING GEL or your batter will be too runny. Found at Bulk Barn or party stores.


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 C.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar. Slowly add egg whites and mix until well combined. Add vanilla and mix until fully incorporated. Add flour mixture and milk in two alternating additions, beginning with the flour and ending with the milk. Mix until well combined.

Divide batter evenly between six medium bowls. Add enough of each color of food coloring to each bowl, whisking, until desired shade is reached. Transfer each color to an individual cake pan. Transfer to oven and bake until a cake tester inserted into the center of each cake comes out clean, about 15 minutes (working in batches if necessary).
