STEP 4 Assemble the 2-layer cake using the vanilla icing between the layers and to crumb coat the outside of the cake.

EXPERT TIP: Chill cake between crumb coat and finishing coat.

STEP 5 Using Cake Mate® Gel Food Color in Neon Pink, Neon Purple, Neon Green, Classic Blue, tint 4 tubs of frosting – one for each color.
