I couldn't decide what flavor birthday cake to make, and this creation was then born. It looked really cool, and those at the party loved it! My mother had never heard of this approach to a cake before, so I thought this was definitely an idea worth sharing!

  • 0.5 (18 1/4 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
  • 0.5 (18 1/4 ounce) package vanilla cake mix
  • 0.5 (18 1/4 ounce) package strawberry cake mix
  • 6 small eggs
  • 2 14 cups water
  • 12 cup vegetable oil
  • white whipped frosting


  1. Prepare 1/2 of the cake mix as directed on the boxes for each flavor. Cook in three 9-inch round pans. You will have prepared one chocolate cake, one vanilla cake and one strawberry cake. Cool and frost each layer whith white whipped frosting. (You can always prepare the whole box for each of the three flavors, and then you will have two 9-inch three layer cakes.) Decorate as desired and enjoy!
