Tie-Dye Jar Cakes with Pudding Icing

Use this technique to create delicious cakes with a tie-dye look.  We chose to stick with red and blue to go along with our Tie-Dye 4th of July.  Using a rainbow of colors is really great as well.

Tie-Dye Jar Cake Recipe

  • Mason jars (These jars make a man-sized portion.  Use jelly jars or prepare in a standard muffin pan for something a little smaller.)
  • white cake mix (and the ingredients to bake as directed)
  • food coloring (we used blue and red for our Tie-Dye 4th of July, but you can use any colors you want)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly spray the Mason jars with cooking spray.  Prepare cake mix as directed.  Divide evenly among three bowls.  Keep one bowl as is.  Using food coloring, dye the cake mix in one of the other bowls red and the cake mix in the last bowl blue.

Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, drop dollops of each color into the jars filling between 1/3 and 1/2 of the jar.

Place the jars on a cookie sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes until done.  Use a toothpick to assure the cake is baked.

Pudding Icing

  • 1 box (3.9 oz) pudding
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 8 oz. frozen whipped topping, thawed

Mix pudding, milk and powdered sugar in  large bowl.  Add whipped topping.  Top cake with generous portions.  Refrigerate any unused portion.
