rainbow cake

 How to make a rainbow cake. (It was a lot easier than I thought it would be.)
 Make your favorite white cake mix. I added lemon pudding and a little vanilla extract to make my white cake even more moist and to taste lemony- but next time I'd stick with plain white cake mix. Divide it up into 6 different bowls. Mix food coloring into the batter- I used this guide.

 I thought the spoons were so pretty afterwards! They got their own photo shoot. 
P.S. They weren't licked off, but spatula'd off... I think that's good to know?




 Bake at temp recommended on the box, but it only takes about 10-12 minutes since they are so thin. Test with a toothpick.

Let them cool in the pans for a little bit before moving to cooling racks.

Slop with frosting- of course using about double the usual frosting you would for a regular cake since there are so many layers.


 The actual cake seems very simple, but the surprise inside is worth it!




You could even put the colors in just two cake pans and have more of a random rainbow. And I've also seen these made into cupcakes too- so cute.
