• 1 cup butter, softened
• 2 cups sugar
• 6 egg whites, room temperature
• 2 teaspoons vanilla
• 3/4 teaspoon salt
• 4 teaspoons baking powder
• 3 cups cake flour
• 1 cup whole milk
• Red food coloring
• Blue food coloring


• 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
• 1/2 cup shortening
• 2 teaspoons vanilla
• 5 cups powdered sugar
• 2 tablespoons heavy cream
• Sprinkles


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray two (or three) round cake pans with cooking spray.

In a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in egg whites, one at a time, followed by vanilla. Mix until well combined. Mix in salt and baking powder. Add half of the flour, mixing until just combined, followed by half of the milk. Repeat with remaining flour and milk. Mix until just combined and no streaks combined.

Divide batter equally between three bowls. Using food coloring, make one bowl blue and the other red. The third bowl remains white.

Add small spoonfuls of each colored batter to your cake pans. Scatter colors randomly. When all batter has been used, gently swirl colors with a butter knife. Do not over mix!

Bake until cakes are done. Let cool completely.

Make frosting: in a stand mixer beat butter and shortening until light and fluffy. Add vanilla. Add one cup of powdered sugar at a time. Add cream. Frost cake layers individually and then all over the top and outside. Top with sprinkles.
