Rainbow Cake

It appears I’m in a ‘cake mix’ kind of mood lately.
I’ve been eyeing rainbow cakes on the internet for a while now and have decided it was time to give it a go.
This recipe begins with a mix, (you can thank me now if you wish).
I’m not promoting one cake mix over the other, but this is what I had so it’s what I used.

Follow instructions on the box for a 2 layer cake.
Decide on 5 or 6 colours and the divide the batter into equal parts in small bowls.

I used food colouring gel for 4 of the colours, but just to test it, I used the liquid for blue colour and there was no difference, so feel free to use either.

Make sure the colours are completely mixed. Do NOT over mix batter.

Start with one colour and pour half of that colour in the center of one pan, and the center of the other pan.
Take the 2nd colour and pour half again ON TOP of the first colour of each pan.
Pour the 3rd colour half and half again on top of the last colour.
As you continue to pour on top the batter underneath will spread and it will look like this when you’re done.

Then make sure you stand at the oven door watching it bake just like I did!!

Sit and count the minutes until it cools so you can ice as fast as you can.

  1. Hey! I just stumbled onto your blog via the friday meme, and I had to leave a comment telling you how wonderful I think your blog is! Your design is pretty, and your content is great!

  2. I am 100% positive my batter would not look like yours when I poured it. I manage to mess up all things I cook no matter how easy they are supposed to be.

    It looks fun. When I get time I am going to try this. I'll let you know how mine turns out.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.
