Patriotic Bundt Cake

I saw this crafty red-white-and-blue bundt cake idea on Pinterest this past summer, and had to give it a try!  Really quite simple and it was an absolute hit at our 4th of July BBQ.  Our fun-filled summer left very little time for blogging, so I thought the 10 year anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the WTC and Pentagon would be a fitting time to remember the stars and stripes!  

**Begin with any white cake recipe, prepared as directed, separated into three bowls.  Add red and blue food coloring as desired to two of the bowls, leaving the remaining batter white.  Grease and flour your bundt pan well, then add alternating globs of each different colored batter.  Do not swirl or mix, as this will make your cake pink, dark pink and purple instead of red, white and blue!  Bake as directed.

Repeat the same food-coloring process with three bowls of your favorite buttercream frosting, but add a teaspoon of milk to each to thin the frosting to drizzle-consistency.  Use the grooves of your bundt cake to alternate each color and cover entire cake with patriotic yumminess.  God bless the USA!
