You would also need three cups of all purpose flour, a tablespoon of baking powder, a half teaspoon of salt, and food coloring in four different colors; red, yellow, blue and green. Be generous when mixing food colorings with the batter to ensure you get vibrant colors. To create the color orange and violet, you may need to mix several colors.
