Red, White, & Blue Cake Recipe

You don't have to make this cake red, white, and blue. I made it those colors for Independence Day :)

Ingredients: (need 2 separate mixes in 2 bowls)
1 cup sugar x 2
1/2 cup butter x 2
2 eggs x 2
2 tsp vanilla x 2
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour x 2
1 3/4 tsp baking powder x 2
1/2 cup milk x 2

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 2- 9" round cake pans

In 2 medium mixing bowls, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. 
In separate bowls combine the baking powder and flour, then add to the cream mixture, and mix well.
Add the milk and stir until mixture is smooth. Add food coloring to the bowls for whatever colors you would like the cake to be.
Pour into the pans and bake for 30-40 minutes.

Ice the cake with vanilla frosting and add sprinkles for a little more festive color.
