Patriotic Cake Batter Dip

It’s already almost summertime! It’s about time to get a few patriotic recipes out! Between 4th of July, Memorial Day, and Labor Day, there are so many holidays here that need red, white, and blue snacks.  I had been tossing around the idea of making this dip for a few months actually but I was really struggling to think of a creative way to make a dip red, white, and blue and not purple or a brown.  I looked around at different colorful dessert dips and finally had a lightbulb go off when I saw a unicorn dip that had a variety of colors nicely swirled together!

Finding festive sprinkles was much harder than I was expecting, I think I must have just been about a week too early and went to a few stores before finding an over-priced variety at Micheal’s…

This patriotic cake batter dip turned out perfect! I thought it tasted amazing and overall, it was so easy to make! I would definitely make it again in a heartbeat!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 1 cup white cake mix
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • Red food coloring
  • Blue food coloring
  • Sprinkles


  1. In a chilled mixing bowl, combine heavy whipping cream and confectioners sugar. Using a hand mixer to whip until light and fluffy.
  2. In a different mixing bowl, combine cake mix and cream cheese. Use a hand mixer to mix and then pour in the whipped cream. Combine to mix until well combined.
  3. Split into 3 separate bowls. Set one bowl aside, that will be the white. In one bowl, add in red food coloring. Stir until well combined. In the last bowl, add in blue food coloring. Stir.
  4. Use a spoon to scoop dip into a bowl. Put all of the red on one side of the bowl with the blue across, filling in the space in between with white dip. This helps prevent dip from turning purple when swirled.
  5. Use a toothpick to swirl the dip a bit. Top with sprinkles.
  6. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
