for Vegan Polka Dot cake we will need:
Chocolate Cake mix & Dark Chocolate Frosting
Strawberry Cake mix & Strawberry Frosting
1 cup Apple Sauce total
2 tbsp of Cornstarch total
2/3 cup Canola/Vegetable oil total
a mini cupcake pan
a cake pop maker
a small round cookie cutter

Replace 3 eggs with 1/2 cup Apple Sauce + 1tbsp Cornstarch
Replace 1cup water with 3/4 cup water
1/3 cup of oil remains the same

mix up the first batter 

bake half the mixture into cake pops/ mini cupcakes/ or bake the entire cake and cut out circles with a cookie cutter. if that gets confusing please refer to
 Beki cooks cakes blog for help!

make and mix batter #2 like batter #1


 oil and flour a cake pan.
pour a small amount of batter #2 on the bottom of the pan 
arrange cake balls/ mini muffins on their sides/ or circle cake cut outs on there sides ontop of the batter
pour more batter ontop of the balls until covered, leaving room for cake to rise in pan

place in Preheated oven at 350*
 bake cake a little longer than box directions. 
remove cake from oven when toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

repeat the process allover again, but make the opposite color of cake balls and batter!
place the balls/mini cupcakes/circle cut outs into different positions than the first cake.

bake agaaaaaain. take out when toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out CLEAN.

frost and ice however youd like!!! pink frosting on the chocolate cake and chocolate frosting on the pink!
you can do whatever you want. however you interpret this all
