butterfor greasing the pans if not using non-stick pans
red and green food coloror whatever colors you prefer (the amount will vary depending on the brand, or whether you’re using paste or liquid)
1cupconfectioner’s (powdered) sugar
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Prepare two 8"x4" loaf pans (grease the bottom and sides if they are not non-stick).
Make the cake batter following the basic butter cake recipe.
Using three bowls, divide the batter evenly into three portions. Add red food color to the first bowl; stir until evenly tinted. Add green food color to the second bowl and mix; leave the batter in the third bowl plain.
Drop the batter by tablespoonfuls into the prepared pans, alternating with the red, green and plain batter.
An optional step is to take a skewer or a blunt knife and run through the length and width of the pan to create a lightly marbled effect.
Bake the cakes at 350F for 40 minutes.
Cool in the pans for 10 minutes then invert, transfer to a rack and cool completely.
To make the glaze, mix the confectioner’s sugar with a tablespoonful of water. The mixture should be thick and almost opaque but still pourable.
Pour the glaze over the cakes, letting some of it run down the sides.
While the glaze is still a bit wet (it sets within a few minutes), scatter the sprinkles on top of the cakes.
