Add 1/3 cup flour mixture to the wet mixture followed by adding 1/3 cup of the buttermilk; add 1/3 cup flour mixture again then add 1/3 cup buttermilk mix on low speed, add 1/3 cup of flour and add the rest of 1/3 cup of buttermilk mix in low speed until thoroughly blended.
Divide the batter into two shallow bowls. Add red gel food coloring to one bowl, then add green gel food coloring to the second bowl. Stir well.
Spray the bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Begin by spooning in some of the red batter and spoon some green on top. Alternate the red and green batter into the bundt pan.
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.
Cream the butter and powder sugar until it looks light and creamy.
If it doesn’t cream add several drops of the heavy whipping cream until it creams. Once the frosting has the right consistency begin by using a large spoon drizzle the frosting on the cake.
Allow all frosting to dry on the cake.
