KRAFT KITCHENS TIPS
For a multi-colored jersey, use 2 different colors of food coloring. Stir a few drops of each food coloring into half of the whipped topping before using as directed.
Lining the baking pan with foil makes for easy cleanup and easy removal of the cake from the baking pan. When lining the pan, allow 3 inches of the foil to extend over each side of pan to use as handles when removing the cake from the pan.
