Paint Splatter Birthday Cake!

 I would love to be able to take credit for this ingenious 'colored pattern INSIDE the cake', but alas it's not mine to claim. The mastermind behind this can be found at:
I adopted her idea and used cupcakes to replace her cake balls (which I don't have the patience to make!) Our gorgeous birthday loved her 'Paint Splatter birthday's just what she ordered!

I baked 12 multi-colored cupcakes. Two of each color (yellow, orange -a mixture of yellow and red as I didn't have any orange on hand,  super red, sky blue, electric green and royal purple). I had enough batter leftover to make a 6" tie dyed cake.

I used one boba tea straw cut in half. Leaving the pointed end intact to jab into the cake.
 I then used a small piece of paper towel folded up and inserted into the straw that I cut lengthwise. Doing this allowed me to push the sections of cake out of the pointed end with ease.

 Sorry about skipping a few photos, such as cutting the cupcakes into miscellaneous shapes of my choosing, spooning approx. 1" of cake batter into the bottom of a greased 9x13" pan lined with parchment paper. Placing my colored cake and cupcake pieces all around on the batter. Some I stood on end, some I layed flat, but my goal was to make sure that every slice of cake would have a colored part included. I then spooned white cake mix until all the colored cake was covered. (See for exact instructions.
This is a photo of what the inside of the cake looked like!! So cool...many thanks to Deborah Stauch (aka FairlyOddMother) for her brilliant idea!!
