Bite into these sweet and colorful firecrackers to discover popping candy inside!
1 package white cake mix
1 1/4 cups milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
Red and blue food coloring
Let's get Cooking...
Combine the cake mix, milk, vegetable oil and eggs in a bowl. Divide the batter between 3 bowls and dye one bowl blue and one bowl red.
Spray 3 loaf pans with cooking spray and pour the batter into the pans. Bake at 350F for 20-30 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the cakes comes out clean. Remove from the pans and cool completely.
Slice the browned tops and bottoms off the cakes and cut them into circles using a cookie cutter. Use a large piping tip to cut the centers out of each circle. Save the centers!
To assemble, place a red cake round on your work surface. Tear a red center in half and insert into the middle of the red cake. Spread some icing onto the red cake and top with a white cake. Repeat with more icing and a blue cake. Fill the cavity with popping candy, then seal with half a blue cake center.
Poke a small hole in the top and insert a piece of licorice rope.
Then bite into the cakes to reveal the candy inside!
