Vanilla glaze ingredients:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3-5 tbsp whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray the bundt pan with cooking spray and set aside. Using a stand mixer, combine the cake mixes, eggs, butter and milk and mix on medium speed until fully combined, about 5 minutes.
  • Divide the batter into 3 bowls. Add red food coloring into one bowl and mix until combined. Add blue food coloring into the second bowl and mix until combined. Leave the third bowl white.
  • Using a spoon, scoop a spoonful of each color into the bundt pan, alternating between colors.
  • Using a knife, swirl the colors around a bit.
  • Once done, place into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove when a knife poked into the cake comes out clean.
  • Cool completely in the bundt pan. Once cooled, place a serving plate on the top of the bundt pan and flip the pan over so that the cake can come out onto the plate.
  • To make glaze - Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix until smooth. Pour the glaze into a measuring cup and pour the glaze evenly onto the cake. Sprinkle some patriotic sprinkles onto the glaze and let the glaze harden before serving.
