Divide the batter into three bowls…. add black gel food coloring to one…. add neon orange gel food coloring to the second and add the neon purple gel food coloring to the third bowl.  Stir well.

Make sure you spray the bundt pan with Pam before the next step.

Begin by spooning in some of the purple batter then the black, next the neon orange and black on top.  Swirl it a bit with a butter knife, but easily so it doesn’t mix.

Bake the cake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.  Allow the cake to cool in the pan for about 20 minutes then remove the cake from the Bundt pan and place on a wire rack until completely cooled.
