Celebrate Spring With A Rainbow!


Welcome, to all my new visitors from Tip Junkie!
I hope you enjoy the rainbow cake that I made with my little girl. We had so much fun working on it and I hope that you do as well.
I feel honored to have had it listed on Tip Junkie!

Today, Grace and I celebrated spring
by baking a fun and colorful rainbow cake together.


You will need:
Boxed Cake Mix, Cooking Oil, Eggs, Food Coloring, Icing (not shown) and
two round cake pans.
Mix up cake mix according to directions and divide into 6 bowls
Mix in food coloring to create the colors of the rainbow. I found that to create rich and vibrant colors you need to add quite a bit of food coloring
Now you will have a bowl in each of these colors: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple
In your first cake pan, one by one put in half of each color. In other words, dumb half the bowl of red, then on top of that put half the bowl of orange. On top of that half the bowl of yellow and so on. You may need to gently shake the pan to get the batter to evenly spread out.

For fun, do the second pan in reverse rainbow colors starting with purple first and ending with red.
Bake according to directions on the box.
Once cooled, place your first cake on a plate and cover the top with icing.
Place your second cake directly on top.

Cover the rest of your cake with the icing.
Serve and Enjoy :p
