Pampered Chef: Question about old checkerboard cake pan set

    I want to make a checkerboard cake to take to a dinner next weekend and I was thinking that since it is July a red, white, & blue cake would be cool. Here is my question. The directions only tell you how to do a two color cake (for example a red & white checkerboard). Does anyone know how to make it three colors?

    How much batter would I need for each color (red & blue) & in what order would I pour them in the pans? TIA!

    If I am making a cake with three cake pans then I use two boxes of cake mix. So I would just use white cake mix and food coloring.

    As for putting it in the pan I would just make sure they were all different - one red, white and blue, one white, blue and red and one blue, white and red so that the colors didn't match sitting on top of each other.

    I know that I would need two mixes. Would you just divide the second one and make half red and half blue?

    I would divide the 2 mixes in 3.

    Ditto. I would mix them seperately but then combine them and divide into three even bowls. Then color as needed.

    just make sure you put a different color in a different ring in each pan.

    I actually changed my mind and I'm going to make the Black Forrest Trifle instead. If I ever get brave enough to try the cake I'll be sure to take pictures!
