I added some pretty colored sugar sprinkles to the batter, but it still didn't look quite pretty enough. Something seemed lacking. So, I decided to marble the cake with food coloring.
I divided the cake batter into two round cake pans and dotted neon food coloring on top. Then, I ran a toothpick through the colors in a figure eight pattern... dragging the toothpick in and out of each color until the batter took on a marbelized look.
After baking, I iced the cake with a thin layer of lemon icing and put it in the freezer to set. Once the icing had hardened a bit, I frosted the cake with cream cheese frosting and decorated it with her name in tinted lemon icing and a rhinestone tiara.
Cutting into the cake was a thrill with each layer revealing delicate strands of color inside. Everyone loved it!
