Rainbow Cake Tutorial

Super fast and easy…

I recommend using a white cake mix so the colors are bright.

Mix up cake using instructions on box.

Separate into bowls depending on how many colors you want to use. Mckenna wanted 5 different colors so I separated the batter into 5 different bowls.

I used these gel food colors instead of the regular drops, don’t know if it makes a difference but I like them.

 

Just pour in any way you would like, both cake layers ended up super different.

 

After baking and cooling, I leveled both cakes, I was pleased with how bright the colors turned out!

 

 

I also cheated and mixed my can of vanilla frosting with a 8 ounce package of cream cheese. Quick and easy cream cheese frosting (also makes MORE frosting for your cake so you can really pack it on there!)

I stole this square cake idea decorated with M&M’s, super easy and simple

You could probably use skittles if you would prefer those colors, but I like M&M’s better… I also used some regular and some peanut butter just to have the variety of sizes.  The girls all thought it was cool and couldn’t wait to eat it!

Easy and delicious!  The great thing is that you can do this with any colors you want to match it to a specific theme!
