Loved this cake! The cake mixes now are only 16.25 ounces, so I bought an extra cake & added 2 ounces from it to be sure the cake turned out good for a birthday party. Also subbed in white chocolate instant pudding mix to keep the batter whiter. I used 25 drops of red food coloring for the red layer, and still had pink batter & 15 drops of blue gave a light blue. Will use even more next time. The frosting recipe does not say to sift the powdered sugar before measuring, but I did since most frosting recipes I've used say to do that. Perhaps because of that, I only needed 1/2 c. heavy cream to get the frosting to a spreadable consistency. Even so, I had enough frosting for the cake, with a little left over. My guests were impressed & the cake was delicious.
