Color Vision Cake


This recipe appeared in a story for the 50th anniversary of boxed cake mixes. The Color Vision Cake, developed by the Betty Crocker kitchens, uses the fruit gelatin powder of your choice to create a vibrant color and flavor. Recipe from General Mills.



  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package pudding-included white cake mix
  • 3 tablespoons dry gelatin powder from small box fruit-flavored gelatin; reserve remaining powder


  • Reserved gelatin powder
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 3 tablespoons evaporated milk, or more as needed
  • 3 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour 2 (8- or 9-inch) round pans, or use cooking spray.
  2. Cake: Prepare cake mix as directed on package, except add the 3 tablespoons of dry gelatin with the water. (Reserve remaining gelatin for frosting.)
  3. Divide batter between pans. Bake and cool as directed on package.
  4. Frosting: Beat reserved gelatin, butter and evaporated milk in medium bowl on low speed 1 minute, scraping bowl constantly.
  5. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until smooth. If necessary, stir in additional evaporated milk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until spreadable.
  6. Fill layers and frost side and top of cooled cake with frosting.
