Easy with Pancake Mix. Color Cubed Cake

You can easily make a color cubed cake with pancake mix. All you have to do is mix and bake.
There's also a YouTube video, with English, showing how to make it.


Pancake mix
450 g (150g x 3)
300 ml (100 ml x 3)
Cocoa powder
10 g
Strawberry powder
4 g
Red Food Coloring:
Whipped cream
500 ml


1. Add the eggs and milk to a bowl. Use a whisk to mix together.
2. Add the pancake mix little by little and mix well to get rid of the lumps.
3. Grease an 18cm round cake pan. Pour the batter into the pan and gently get rid of the air bubbles. Bake in a 180°C oven for 20 minutes.
4. If an inserted skewer is removed cleanly, it's done.
5. Remove from the cake pan while still hot and let it cool.
6. Make the strawberry and cocoa cakes following the same steps as the plain cake.
7. To make the strawberry spongecake, add the strawberry powder and red food coloring during Step 2.
8. To make the cocoa spongecake, add the cocoa powder during Step 2.
9. Pour each into separate greased cake pans and bake for 18-20 minutes in a 180°C oven.
10. Once the cakes have cooled, use a cake knife to scrape off the browned surfaces and flip them upside down.
11. Cut out a circle from the center of the cake, and then cut out another circle from the center of the cut out circle.
12. As the picture shows, put the circles together without overlapping the colors.
13. In Step 12, to hold the cakes together, use whipped cream as a paste. It won't fall apart as easily when being sliced.
14. Once you put the circles together to form 3 different colored cakes, spread the bottommost cake with whipped cream.
15. Place the middle layer cake on top and spread that cake with whipped cream.
16. Place the topmost cake on top and begin decorating.
17. I decorated it with "Kracie's Nerikan Land" soft candies and a figurine, as seen in the finished product in the photo.
18. If talking about flavor, I like marzipan better than soft candies, but this was easier to do.
19. Once you have decorated it however you choose, it's done.
20. There's no sugar added to the cake batter, so it's just mildly sweet.
21. Try drizzling some maple syrup over the top of the whipped cream when enjoying this cake. I also recommend spreading syrup onto the cakes before adding the whipped cream.
