Divide mixture evenly between pans (Use a scale it makes it super easy).

Bake for 30-35 Minutes.

Cool completely before icing with cream cheese frosting. Check out my ombre cream cheese frosting recipe for details on how to ombre frost your cake as well as a delicious cream cheese frosting.

Don't forget to do a crumb layer and chill before final icing.
