I want to make a Mondrian cake, but I'm not sure how to get the deep blue, red, and yellow colors. I found a tutorial here:
http://www.savvyhousekeeping.com/mondrian-cake-recipe/
I want my cake too look more like the first picture, not the second. The second's colors aren't quite right. Any suggestions? And could you get those deep colors by making one cake and coloring it after, or do you think you'd need to make 4 cakes, all different colors, and then assemble?
Thanks!
