We Indian love everything colourful..so as food.. I have tried so many versions of pattern cakes, zebra cakes. Then I thought to experiment something that is more colourful as well as healthy and
came up with this cute colourful and healthy cake. This is sure a hit with kids and as a party dessert.

2.Beat butter, vanilla extract and sugar in a medium bowl until very light and froathy. Now add eggs one by one beating vigorously. Sift flour baking soda and baking powder together. Now add flour mix and milk to the egg mix an stir until well combined.
3. Divide mixture into three bowls. add pink color and strawberry flavour to one bowl, cocoa powder and extra milk to another bowl and leave one bowl plain. Now you have 3 bowls of cake mix brown, pink and cream.
4. drop alternate spoonful of mixtures in cake pan, plain, pink and yellow repeating until all mixture is consumed. pull a skewer backward and forward through the cake to create marble effect.
5. Bake the cake for one hour or until a skewer come out plain. stand in pan for 5 mins, turn onto a wire rack to cool.
