    1 (16.5-oz.) Hy-Vee extra-moist lemon deluxe cake mix
    1 (16.5-oz.) Hy-Vee extra-moist classic white deluxe cake mix
    2 c. plus 2 tbsp. Hy-Vee 2% reduced-fat milk, divided
    ⅔ c. Hy-Vee vegetable oil
    6 Hy-Vee large eggs
    ⅔ c. rainbow jimmies
    1 ¼ c. Hy-Vee unsalted butter, softened
    6 c. Hy-Vee powdered sugar
    2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

    Things To Grab

    • 2 (15x10x1-inch each) pans
    • Hy-Vee nonstick cooking spray
    • Parchment paper
    • Whisk
    • 2 large bowls
    • Wooden toothpick
    • Electric mixer
    • Large cutting board
    • 4 small bowls


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 (15x10x1-inch each) pans with nonstick spray. Line bottom of pans with parchment paper. Spray parchment with nonstick spray, then lightly coat with flour; set aside. 

    2. Whisk cake mixes, 2 cups milk, vegetable oil, and eggs in a large bowl. Whisk in jimmies. Spread batter into prepared pans. Bake 20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool in pans.

    3. For Frosting, beat butter with an electric mixer on HIGH 30 seconds. Gradually add powdered sugar; beat on LOW until combined. Slowly add remaining 2 tablespoons milk and lemon juice. Beat until smooth and creamy.

    4. To assemble, loosen cake edges from pans. Turn on cake out onto a large cutting board; remove parchment. Turn second cake layer out onto a large serving platter. Spread half of frosting on top. Top with remaining cake layer.

    5. Divide remaining frosting among four small bowls, tint each with a different color of food coloring. Swirl each color of frosting on cake, blending the colors slightly as they change. Sprinkle with additional jimmies, if desired. Cover and store cake in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
