If you are looking for an easy sweet treat to enjoy on St. Patrick’s Day, this St. Patrick’s Day Bundt Cake is it. It’s fun, festive, and tastes fabulous.
This cake includes 3 colors of cake and frosting. It’s kind of hard to tell in the pictures. I used gel food coloring from the grocery story. You will get better results with Wilton gel food coloring.
You start with a white cake mix. Dry white chocolate pudding in added in to add flavor and even more moistness to the cake. Then you divide the batter into thirds. You leave 1/3 as is. Then you add some green food coloring to 1/3 to make a light green. With the last 1/3, you add food coloring to make a dark green. When you put the batter in the pan, it then get’s layered and then swirled.
For the frosting, you also divide in in thirds and doo the exact same method. One third of the batter is left alone, 1/3 is coloring light green, and the last 1/3 is colored dark green. Then you put the frosting on the cake in layers.
The finishing touch is sprinkles. It makes the cake even more fun looking. I used green sugar sprinkles and green little shamrock sprinkles. You will love how easy but inpressive this St. Patrick’s Day Bundt Cake is.

- Pour the white batter into a greased and floured (I always use Pam Baking spray – it’s gotta be the baking kind) 10 inch fluted tube pan and spread evenly. Do the same next with the light green batter and follwed with the dark green batter. Take a wooden skewer and swirl it through the cake batter.
- Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
- Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pan to wire rack to cool completely. Once cake is cooled, prepare the frosting.

- Place each color of frosting into it’s own quart sized ziploc bags. Snip one corner off each bag and then pipe the frosting over the cake beginning with the white followed by the light green, then dark green. Sprinkle the sprinkles over the cake. Makes 12 to 15 servings.
