I have a request for "funfetti" effect--something I for people from time to time by adding colored sprinkles to my own batter since I hate working with cakes from mixes--the problem is that the cake has already been baked and I would like to figure out a way to add the color now rather then start all over again.
My boyfriend's parents have a diabetic cat and use very tiny syringes to give the cat insulin. I am considering using those to inject color in little specks throughout the cake. I'll probably use colored lemon juice.
Is this a sound approach? Does anyone have any other ideas or experience with coloring cakes already baked? Any help or ideas would be appreciated.
My advice - rebake.
When I saw your post I thought about the people who poke holes in the cake and pour liquid jello but that would tint the cake differently than funfetti. I would say freeze that one for later and rebake...sorry.
I agree with the others. Re-baking would probably faster then trying to inject a million little specks of color in the cake.
may i ask, what is a funfetti cake? i googled it and a box mix image came up but i have definatel ynever seen that here in aust. is it something you can make by altering a different box mix/recipe? thanks for any help! it definately soun ds interesting!!
