Ingredients
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • 1⁄3 cup vegetable oil
  • 16.5 oz./470 g pkg. white cake mix
  • Desired food color
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • -------------------------------
  • 1 pkg. vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 8 oz. container whipped topping
Instructions
  1. Cake:Combine eggs, water, and oil in base of Power Chef™ System, fitted with the paddle whisk attachment. Cover and pull cord to process until combined. Add cake mix to liquids, cover and pull cord to process until combined.
  2. Measure 1-1⁄3 cup of cake batter, add 50 drops (about ½ tsp.) of desired food color, mix thoroughly and pour into greased TupperWave® Stack Cooker ¾-Qt./750 mL Casserole/Cover.
  3. Measure 1-1⁄3 cup of cake batter and add 15 drops of desired food color, mix thoroughly and pour into greased TupperWave® Stack Cooker 1¾-Qt./1.75 L Casserole.
  4. With the remaining 1-1⁄3 cup of cake batter, add 5 drops of desired food coloring, mix thoroughly and pour into greased TupperWave® Stack Cooker 3-Qt./3 L Casserole. Stack Casseroles in ascending order and microwave at 70% power for 8 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center of cake comes out clean. Any uncooked cake layers return back to the microwave and finish cooking at 70% power. Check periodically for doneness. Allow layers to cool thoroughly before frosting.
  5. Frosting: Pour milk and pudding into Quick Shake® Container and shake until pudding thickens. Place whipped topping into a Thatsa® Bowl Medium. With a Saucy Silicone Spatula, fold pudding into whipped topping. Chill while layers are cooling and assemble. Add about 1 cup of frosting between the middle layers and the remaining frosting to the top of cake.
Notes
Tips:
• Cooking times may need to be adjusted based on microwave wattage.
• To expedite the cooling process, place cake layers, unstacked, into freezer for 10-15 minutes. Removing layers from the Stack Cooker will also speed the cooling process.
• Check your white cake mix for exact amount of water, oil and eggs. Some white cake mixes may require egg whites.
• If desired, a 12-oz./350 g can of prepared frosting can be substituted. ½ cup in between layers and ¾ cup on the top.
• For best results, frost the cake with chilled frosting or chill the assembled cake
before slicing.
• Thatsa® Bowl Mini is a great size for mixing the batter and food coloring.
• If layers cook unevenly, then it may be necessary to trim the edges of layers in
order to stack.
