On Vacation -- I Really Should Have

Carole and I went to WalMart to get the ingredients for the cheesecakes I was making for the guild party on Sunday. We were wandering about, looking for items and these were on the end cap of an aisle.

At the time, I didn't want to spend the money. But, as the time has passed, I realize I should have. I really should have bought one of each and made them.

I'm curious about the colors. Usually, making something like this, with swirls of other colors, is a somewhat time consuming process. You have to separate batter and add the food coloring. Then, put the main color in the pan, adding the additional color(s) slowly so they don't mix. This is akin to paint and if you mix the colors, not swirl them, you'll come up with a brown, muddy mess. It's still edible, it just looks like a fresh cow pie. I realize its a horrid stereotype but I can't see the average WalMart shopper doing a labor intensive project like a red, white and blue cake. I missed my chance to check these out. I was just so dumbfounded at seeing them in the aisle.

Beverage:  Huckleberry tea
