Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Grease or spray two 8-inch round pans; place 8-inch round piece of cooking parchment paper in bottom of each pan. Grease or spray parchment paper. In large bowl, beat 1 box cake mix and ingredients called for on box with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on high speed about 2 minutes or until smooth. Spread in pans. Bake as directed on box. Cool 10 minutes; run knife around sides of pans to loosen cakes. Gently remove from pans to cooling rack; remove parchment paper. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Repeat to make 2 more layers.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Don’t have a 4-inch round cutter? Cut out a 4-inch circle of cooking parchment paper, and use it as a pattern.

This cake is filled with blue candies to represent a boy but to reveal that you are expecting a girl, simply fill the cake with pink candies.
