on Facebook I've seen pictures of a cake made by 1st baking small balls of colored sponge, then baking THEM in a white sponge mix. it looks amazing, but I would have thought that the twice cooked colored balls would be very dry. has anyone cooked this?

I haven't made it myself but I was so curious I figured I would find what you were talking about on pinterest (source of all crazy ideas) and found it: like this?

In the recipe she says she underbaked the balls of coloured sponge so they wouldn't dry out on the second bake, which I guess makes sense.

You could try freezing raw coloured mix and using an icecream scoop to ball it, then add to your cake mix. It should bake through as normal.
